Mokuru Fidget Toy Review

MOKURU Fidget Toy Review – Fidget Spinners are so last week!

Kel Reviews 120 Comments

Do your children have fidget spinners? Or cubes? Mine do. Big pestered me for one as soon as they started becoming a craze, despite them being around for kids with autism and ADHD for a while. He has a couple of spinners and a cube now, so when I told him I needed him to review a new kind of fidget toy, he was intrigued. Fidget spinners are so last week! This is the new craze from Japan: MOKURU fidget toy.

MOKURU Fidget Toy – The Review!

MOKURU was originally designed to test balance and focus, but has been developed into a portable toy that can be played anywhere there’s a smooth, flat surface.

Crafted from beech wood, with padded ends, MOKURU is simple and elegant in design. Available in a variety of colours, don’t let its simplicity fool you: MOKURU is the thinking kid’s toy!

Our first thought on opening the packet (which was, in itself, a challenge!), was, “what on earth do we do with it?” A closer look at the packet revealed a QR code, which opens up the MOKURU website, with a demonstration video to watch. Ahhh, now it made sense!

The video makes it look so easy! Ha! Looks can be deceptive! All you need to do is push it. Apparently.

We quickly worked out that I am rubbish, so I left it to Big to play with to see if he could master it. 

He’s been practising. A lot. It’s a bit addictive, it seems, and, once you do get the hang of it, you can’t stop trying to better yourself! Which is great; I always want my kids to push themselves to do better. Unfortunately, with MOKURU it’s a bit annoying, as it’s not a quiet toy! It doesn’t work on carpet – it needs to be on a smooth, hard, flat surface, such as a table, desk or wooden floor. It’s okay though, you get used to the ‘thunk… thunk… thunk…’ noise after a while!…

 

 

Big is really enjoying playing with MOKURU fidget toy. He hasn’t managed any real tricks yet, but he’s able to flip it and stop it, which is a good start (and better than I can manage!). Even Small, who is 5, is better at it than me! Apparently, MOKURU masters are able to flip five at once – with one hand! I think Big has some way to go…

MOKURU fidget toy is definitely fun and an interesting alternative to spinners and cubes. It’s a bit like grown-up bottle flipping. It’s portable, which is great, but the noise could get a bit irritating, so be careful where you play it!
