Mokuru Desktop Fidget Toy & Giveaway

Mokuru is the latest desktop toy to hit our shores and consists of a 9cm wooden cylindrical shaped piece with rubberised end pieces.  The idea is that you flick it from side to side and it will bounce across the floor multiple times as well as it’s ability to spin around so I can see how it can easily become an addictive finger toy that can keep you occupied for hours.  Available in seven bold colours, we received the red one to try out.

On first viewing it seems like a simple toy and you wonder how it’s going to perform but once you try giving it a roll, it’s really interesting how you can balance it and flick it from end to end. My 9yr old daughter was fascinated with it and spent much time in the hallway on the floor trying to fathom it out.

We found Mokuru to be a fun in that it can either be played on your own or with others, flicking it across the table to each other was a preferred one ( I can see this being popular for kids in restaurants passing the time whilst waiting for their food!).  A hard surface is a must so either a table, hard floor, desk, windowsill – you name it, there is always somewhere you can find to flick it around!

Miss M is progressing well and you can see her initial attempts in the video below, it gives you an idea of the way it works and as you can tell she is completely absorbed with the toy seeing how many times she can flick it around:

Mokuru is definitely the next must have craze to hit the UK after the fidget spinner and will be sure to have kids and adults up and down the country competing to see how many times they can flick the toy across the floor!
