Description

This Daruma game consists of a wooden ladder and a cylindrical Daruma doll (also made of wood). The ladder is stained dark and stands on a base, and has a hinged section to extend its heigh. The Daruma has two holes, just off center, with v-shaped slots open to each end of the cylinder.  A Daruma decal is attached to one side of cylinder with the familiar angry, mustached Daruma face, and a small bell is attached to the other. When placed at the top, the Daruma tumbles down the ladder and the bell rings.
