It is a basic wooden toy, made from beech wood and very light to hold. You stand it on an end and lightly tip it over and it somersaults over the counter until it comes to a stop. You need to be light fingered to do this because at first, I was too heavy handed and just kept shoving it across the table. But once you get the hang of it, you can play against a partner or make it a group of you.
The Mokuru was originally designed to help people with focus and balance but now is used more as a toy because of the tricks that you can do with it. After you have the hang of it, you can even try to use 4 or 5 at a time! The Mokuru comes in 8 different colours and we were sent a green one to review. The Mokuru only works on a flat surface, so you can't use it on the carpet and you do need a lot of space for it to somersault over. After the initial problems with shoving it too hard, it was quite addictive with adults as well as children. And as it is so light, you can carry it around without a problem to keep the kids occupied. Pop over to the Mokuru Facebook Page for more details and join the fun.
