Taketombo (take = bamboo; tombo = dragonfly) are hand-made toys which are great fun for all the family whether in the garden, the park, the beach or anywhere outside.
These traditional Japanese toys are said to date back to the 18th century and fly like mini-helicoptors on their one propeller.
Taketombo are simple and easy for you to make and each set comes with a complete list of English instructions for making your own taketombo and flying them. It is possible, once you have had a bit of practice to achieve some impressive heights and speeds with your taketombo.
Choose from a collection of ready-made sets or make-your-own kits, where you design the color-scheme.
The taketombo are 15cm in length (approx. 6 inches). The propellers are 9cm in length (approx. 3 and a half inches).
Our taketombo make the ideal fun gifts for you, your family and friends.
