I’ve observed a pretty awesome phenomenon this year.
I’m talking about the merging of different skilltoy communities.
From what I’ve seen, kendama is a pretty big hit there, what with yoyo players picking up kendamas and kendama players picking up yoyo’s.
Although Kendamas haven’t reached here yet (Philippines), a similar thing is happening with cardistry.
A LOT of cardists are starting to pick up yoyo’s and vice versa, its really great seeing new faces in clubmeets and such, its also awesome to learn new skill toys, I myself have been hooked by cardistry…
I remember way back when speed cubers and penspinners started to yoyo and vice versa, some yoyoers were hating on cube and pens saying they are just a fad, same with kendama’s today, but to me, it really brings a warm and fuzzy feeling all around.
What do you guys think? Thanks for reading :3
