Peterkin will exclusively distribute the latest craze in the UK and Ireland – a must-see new launch!

Peterkin has launched Mokuru, the latest craze from Japan which is set to take the UK by storm.

Already a big hit in many markets around the world, the fast-flipping toy will be distributed in the UK and Ireland exclusively by Peterkin.

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

Peterkin’s UK Managing Director, Andrew Moulsher, said: “We’ve been aware of Mokuru for some time. We know from our Hong Kong office that consumers there are going mad for Mokuru and we are delighted to have secured the brand exclusively for the UK and Ireland.

“The industry should be aware, however, that this 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. If anyone has any doubt about the intention to invoke this protection, just take a look at the Mokuru website (www.mokuru.com) and you’ll see what I mean.

“The message is simple – don’t buy a mock Mokuru! Get the real thing from the authorised distributor. Initial indications suggest that we are going to see huge demand for the brand, so all I would say to our retail partners old and new is, don’t miss out on Mokuru!”

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, and for big kids to play in the bar, at a desk, or against others in competition, refining their techniques until they become a Mokuru master.

Designer Masakazu Node has worked hard to “create the perfect size, shape and materials” for Mokuru. Beginners can simply tip over the toy, let it flip and catch it with their fingers or flip it to draw a triangle or square. Mokuru masters can use five Mokuru at once with one hand. More than just a toy Mokuru uses the focus, physicality and imagination of the players.
