In this Finnish lawn game, players use a wooden pin (mölkky) to knock over pins numbered 1 to 12. Knocking over one pin scores the amount of points marked on the pin, and knocking over two or more scores the amount of pins knocked down. The first one to reach 50, without going over, wins. Each pack includes a handmade carrying case, a rule book and score cards. The company requires a minimum order of five units.

The apparatus is equipped with three short carving skis — two at the back under each foot, and one at the front — connected to the handlebars.

Because the direction and angles of all three skis are fluidly engineered by the Skki’s three-point cambering system, everything is kept in line as the machine tracks effortlessly across the snow. Skki makes carving like a professional made easy. Launch date: 2006.
— According to John Simpson and the folks at Trikke Tech, “The Trikke Skki is most of all a fun product. Riding the Skki brings a smile to your face, because you are in control, feeling free and enjoying the ride.”
