My boys love the fidget phase – they have really enjoyed collecting a whole array of fidget spinners, and Hugo, the one who really needs to fidget, loves the fidget cube too. Always looking for the next big thing though, we were really keen to try out the MOKURU fidget stick, the latest craze from Japan…
The MOKURU fidget stick looks like a very simple device. It is a smooth stick crafted from beech wood, with rubber at each end. It has a nice, comfortable hand feel, and a slight air of mystery about it, I think! The stick was originally designed to test an individual’s balance and focus, but now is testing the dexterity of fast fingers everywhere! MOKURU experts can use five at one time in one hand!!
Looking at the fidget stick, I wasn’t entirely sure what to do with it, but the boys seemed to know straight away. You stand it up on its end, and flick it forwards gently from the top with one finger, and then the magic happens…
What’s your record??
You could also spin the stick, as it has a rounded middle, so it’s like a slightly elongated barrel. So, lying flat on the table, it could be twisted in a star type motion.
We could see this being a great executive, office type toy, as well as a childrens’ fidget toy. There is something strangely satisfying about it!
The fidget sticks are available in 7 different colours, and are available now from the MOKURU website. They can also be found at Smyths Toys and Amazon (affiliate link). Be careful, there are lots of fakes out there, but only MOKURU is the real one which has been designed and engineered to ensure perfect balance and is made from good quality materials.
No doubt my kids will now want one in every colour variation, just to be ahead of the game!
MOKURU can also be found on social media, at https://www.facebook.com/MokuruUK/ and on Twitter as # or @MOKURU and Instagram MOKURU_official . Go and find them and see who is having fun!
