C371 Children's Games
Issue Date: September 27, 2013
On September 27, 2013, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issues four new stamps celebrating traditional Marshallese children's games. The Etobobo player places a small strip of
coconut leaf over the teeth, holding it in place with the lips. The leaf is tapped with a thin stick of the coconut leaf, producing a percussion instrument of sorts. Lejonjon is the art of
juggling tiny green coconuts which have been gathered after they have fallen prematurely. A Lodidean is a windmill-shaped toy made from a coconut palm that functions much like a pinwheel. To
make a Didmakol, a notch is cut in the middle of a pandanus leaf near its end. The player grabs the end closest to the cut and executes a vigorous throwing motion without letting go of the leaf.
The loosened end of the Didmakol breaks away, and can fly amazing distances.
