Have you tried opening and playing with one yet?
Kendama is more fun to play than it is to see.

Yes, of course i do. I have about 6 i play with. I'm addicted to playing with Kendama's.

Just I can admire the history and craftsmanship that goes into making them too. And I personal think they are beautiful to look at.
I don't see any difference from someone who makes a surf board by hand, lots of people would describe them as works of art.

Very true! haha
By the way, those Oozoras with the white packaging are quickly becoming somewhat collectible, in case you weren't aware. Worth hanging on to.

I'll see if I can post some pics of my collection soon

Kendama Collection April 2012 by samuelrbradley

Here is mine as it stood after the BKO. Left to right:

Muji kendama - £1.80 bargain and impossible to catch in the cups
Kendama USA Colin Sander Pro Model - slightly defaced by an unknown artist
Blue Yumu
Natural Shin Fuji - One of my favourites
Red Deathray Fugen - An excellent late night purchase
Red TK16 - My first and only just retired
Gold Dragon Oozora - Won in sitting down K-E-N after the BKO
White Sunrise - My current take everywhere kendama
Green Oozora - The white package my kendama of choice in 2011
Red Taiyo - Won in the beginners division at the BKO in 2010
Purple Rokurosen - Probably my favourite for looking at
Sky blue Oozora - An old stringless friend
Seafoam Sweets Kendama - Smells really nice
Also a green Oozora in package won in the moshi kame at the 2011 BKO and a yellow Oozora (not pictured) staying fresh for the EKO.

You may be able to spot my copies of "Spike!" and "Knees!" in amongst the books too.

I think it was about March time. It travelled the 5000 odd miles to me pretty quickly too! It's a cool thing to have and non-kendama people seem to like it.

That red play kendama looks like a mini size. Or has it been played extensively?

I'll try to get my 'collection' up in a couple of days, I live in two places at once so my collection is scattered...
Kendama Belgium!
