The Handmade Wooden Cup and Ball Game consists of a cup mounted on the edge of a stick. A durable string is tied to the top of the handle and is attached to a round wooden ball. Kids can jerk, tilt and twist the cup while gripping the handle to set the ball in motion. The string keeps it safely secured to the cup and makes the game challenging. The object is to move the cup at precisely the right time to catch the ball inside. Then, the ball can be lifted out, so that the child can try his or her luck again! Hand crafted out of genuine hardwood, the Handmade Wooden Cup and Ball Game Measures 8 inches from the bottom of the handle to the top of the cup. The included ball Measures 1.75 inches in diameter. Due to the small size of this piece, this toy is recommended for children 10 years of age and older. The handle is specially designed to be easy for kids to grip, ensuring that the game is challenging but still fun! Not only will the Handmade Wooden Cup and Ball Game keep kids occupied at home, but its also a great travel toy, as the ball cannot become lost. Kids can play with this quiet toy on car trips, on the beach, at the park, in hotel rooms and anywhere else that your travels take you. As kids play, they will develop hand eye coordination skills that can help in many aspects of their lives, and when kids get up and move as they play, they will burn calories and get exercise!
