Minigames with prizes

The kendama community is known for their generosity and this convention won't be any exception! We’ll be running a few minigames throughout the workshop with chances to win kendamas and other prizes.

Who are Sweets Kendamas?

Sweets Kendamas was founded in August of 2010 by founder Matt “Sweets” Jorgenson after seeing a Kendama in a snowboarding video. Being a long time juggler, snowboarder, and yo-yo player, he had to have a Kendama.  He searched the web and was only able to find kendamas from international sources.  Paying more for shipping than for the product itself, the seed that has become Sweets Kendamas was planted. With the mission of spreading kendama love, Sweets Kendamas was conceived in August of 2010. Since then, our company has focused our efforts to spread the benefits and gratification that kendama can provide and the culture that it creates.

Several of their kendama enthusiasts will be present at AnimeCon on Sunday to host this workshop!
