Word from Designer:
"The more you play...
We picked up all the toys, old wooden swords, hammocks, masks, and everything else, and we created the brand, called Banana Chill.
From playing kendama we grew to a company that organizes jam’s and participates in many worldwide competitions. From day one our dream was to design our kendama and thanks to Okendama and Sol kendamas, together we fulfilled our dream.
Kendama always reminds me to be present. It is always fun to play with other kendama players, but the biggest game happens within yourself. Learning to be alone may be initially scary, but once mastered, serves as the cornerstone for your development and growth as a human being."
Portion of sales goes to designer to support BananaChill community.
