You can’t go very far these days without getting caught up in the latest craze sweeping the UK. We haven’t long had the Fidget Spinners that are still very popular (Mia has played with hers just once!) but the newest craze coming out of Japan is the Mokuru!
Mokuru’s are little handheld wooden toy’s originally designed to test your balance and focus however now this new desk toy is testing the dexterity of fast fingered flippers everywhere! Made from beech wood and available in various different eye catching colours (black, green, orange, white, red, blue, and yellow), players can flip, tip and spin them where ever they like! Designed by Masakazu Node, the Mokuru are the perfect size, shape and made from the perfect materials to become the fast flipping toy it is today. Already a huge hit in Japan and Hong Kong, beginners can tip over the toy, let it flip and catch it with their fingers, or flip it to draw a triangle or square.
The Mokuru wooden toy currently retailing at around £9.99, are small enough to fit into your pocket or handbag for your child to take to the park, playground and for big kids to play with in bars, at desks or play against others in competition! Play for fun or develop and sharpen your creative skills to become a Mokuru Master where you can even use 5 at once in one hand and the fact that they are claimed to help focus and concentration, imagination and alleviate stress, means they are definitely not just another wooden toy!
