Peterkin launches Mokuru – the latest craze from Japan

Published on: 19th June 2017

The new fidget toy from Japan will be distributed by Peterkin.

This handheld wooden toy was originally designed to test an individual’s balance and focus – now its simple design is testing the dexterity of fast fingered flippers everywhere. Crafted out of beech wood into an eye-catching design, players can flip, tip, and spin one Mokuru or more.

Small enough to fit in a pocket or a purse, Mokuru is the go anywhere toy for all ages, a new game for kids to play in the playground; or for big kids to play in the bar, at a desk, or against others in competition. More than just a toy, Mokuru uses the focus, physicality, and imagination of players, who can refine their technique until they become a Mokuru master.

Designer Masakazu Node has worked hard to create the perfect size, shape, and materials for Mokuru. The toy will be distributed in the UK and Ireland exclusively by Peterkin.

Peterkin’s UK managing director Andrew Moulsher commented: “We’ve been aware of Mokuru for some time. We know from our Hong Kong office that consumers there are going mad for it and we are delighted to have secured the brand exclusively for the UK and Ireland. Spinners are so last month. The industry should be aware, however, that Mokuru is very much a brand. The owners and developers are determined to protect their trademarks and intellectual property, which covers both the Mokuru brand name and the product design, which has been protected across Europe, China, and the Americas.”
