Well, he did it! He remembered to take care of the kitty litter and he earned himself a real Kendama. I was so afraid he was going to forget on the last day and be relegated to playing with his grandpa-made kendama forever! As he was leaving the house the other night, I told his mom not to let him take the homemade kendama to school in his backpack. Can you imagine what might have happened if all of his friends saw it? While adults might think of it as an ingenious solution, I don’t think most kids would be so impressed!
While I could sometimes do the tricks on the big homemade Kendama, I sure couldn’t even get close with the small aspects and shorter string of the real one. Not so with SP. As soon as it was handed to him by the sales clerk, he was extremely good.
Now he just has to keep practicing….I hear that Dutch Harbor Asia is going to have a Kendama contest during Spring Break!

I saw him last nite and you are right! He is already pretty darn good and he’d only had it for a day or so! I was impressed! And he taught me how to do a spin pin!!!
He tried to teach me, but I just couldn’t get it. I need one of my own, so nobody will take it away from me when I practice!!
You are going to be a great kendama master someday! Keep up the good work! If you ever need a tip or two just check out the website!

Yellow and Blue Stripe nice choice 🙂
OMG! SP is going to be so thrilled with this comment! I think he was probably the last kid in Unalaska to get a Kendama. Of course, this was according to him. Great product for eye hand coordination.
Work those knees! 🙂
