I say I was a teen in the 70's when my mother bought me the Jokari for my birthday. It didn't take long for my mother to realize it was one of my favorite gifts she had ever bought me. One of the neighbor boys and a few of my sisters played it for hours. it wasn't long till others started wanting to play and before you knew it we were having contest throughout the summer to find who was the King of Jokari or Queen of Jokari !

As each year when winter would break we were back at it all the way till winter arrived.

That went on for 5 to 6 years till the second Jokari set had it's string give out. the elastic rotted and that was the end of our game. We could not find any replacement string and the ball had split. I'm not trying to brag but I was King of Jokari 4 of those years. My one brother-in-laws took me down about the last year of being able to play. He was bigger and faster than me by the last year we played. I seldom lost till he got the hang of it, than he became King of Jokari. I know we played that game more than we played baseball or softball, and hours spent playing was many. I was amazed at how well the game held up for the amount of hours it was played. Some of the parents bought us a few of the elastic because they were glad that their children were keeping out of trouble and they sat out on the porches to watch us play. I'm very sure they enjoyed watching us as much as we enjoyed playing. We learned to play with doubles, that keep the game very active. What great memories of fun our neighborhood had in Mechanicsburg, Pa.
