5 stones, was an oldies game played by the childrens in Singapore from the 60s till now.

Originally they were made out of little stones (Usually 5 pieces) found from anywhere. As most parts of Singapore then, were mostly undeveloped countryside.

Graduately,the game was improvised out of leftover fabrics from mum's tailored dresses with beans or rices filled in.

Not sure when and who came out of the pyramid shape design but it sure was very much easier to play with.

Now, not forgetting this game. I had re-create the outlook made out of felt with multi-colour eyes sew on them on each facet. That will be 4 eyes on each stone! Following the tradition of filling them with either green or red beans.

Measure at 1.5" x 4 facets with 2 different sizes coloured eyes sew on.
2 sets @ 5 pcs ea. in either Stone gray or Lime green available.

To learn how to play the game. Please do a search in 5 stones in Youtube & you will find the demo clip.

Also, welcome to pop by Monomoon in Esty as well for my still growing art collections.
