This simple yet innovative skill toy from Yomega can be played with in a number of different open-ended ways.

Designed by Matt Hiebert, 'Monkey Knuckles' is a ball-and-string toy that resembles a pair of nunchucks. Consisting of only a few simple parts, two balls are attached on either side of of a durable piece of rope alongside two other lager balls that are able to slide back and forth. Users are able to throw, spin and swing this skill toy in a number of different ways making it able to facilitate open-ended play in a fun and creative way.

The weight of the larger balls allows for a variety of different movements, and the smaller balls act like handles to keep everything attached together. It will likely take some time to master, but Monkey Knuckles basically encourages experimentation in its very design.
