When I was a 20 something, a group of us hung out continuously and would sit around late at night smoking, drinking and doing whatever to amuse ourselves. Someone came up with a little game we called "lighter". The rules were simple. We would pass a lighter around the room, the only catch was that you had to catch it on the back of your hand. Mostly the boys played but I was not one to be outdone by anyone so... I practiced and joined in.
When I saw this new hacky-sack type toy advertised, I knew I had to get my hands on a Myachi. You bounce it, flip it, spin it, kick it. The only rule: You can't use the palm of your hand. I showed the video to my 7 year old and then listened to him ask me every day "When is it going to get here?" He was almost as excited as I was to try it out. His sole request was that if we received one in pink, he wanted me to order any other color so he could take it to school and show his friends. We got one in red.
The second it arrived he tore it out of the package and started playing with it. He doesn't have a lot of patience with things that take effort so I thought this would be a good "game" we could practice together. (Plus I get to be the cool mom who can actually catch it on the back of her hand.) He has carried it with him everywhere we've been. There was some frustration at the beginning, which I expected, but once he caught it a couple times he was hooked. Using extreme hand-eye coordination this hand sack will provide hours of entertainment and push the user to be creative in thinking up new tricks. The site has video, apparel (Handsome is already begging for a shirt) and a place for all enthusiast to share their experience. The site says it best with...
As a company, Myachi is dedicated to instilling the virtues that lie at its core into the next generation of Myachi Maniax: Discipline, Respect, Confidence, Patience and Passion. By focusing on these virtues in a way that is fun, healthy and active, we hope that the values and lessons of Myachi can help build stronger communities and individuals…and one’s with sick reflexes and hand-eye coordination at that!
