AMBUSH has dropped a special toy that may be nostalgic for a lot of young adults in Japan. In celebration of Children’s Day, the brand has unveiled a Kendama, a traditional Japanese skill toy made up of a handle (ken), a pair of cups (sarado) and a ball (tama).
AMBUSH has collaborated with a Japanese manufacturer that invented the Kendama, Iwata Woodwork in Hatsukaichi City, Hiroshima, celebrating the 100th-anniversary of the toy’s production. The toy features a handle with a special aluminum foil that the manufacturer can only produce 20 pieces a day. There’s a black ball with a matte finish stamped with “AMBUSH” branding, and the rest of the toy is made in natural wood.
AMBUSH’s Kendama is currently available on AMBUSH’s website for ¥17,600 JPY (approximately $160 USD).
