What toy has been played with by Cavemen, Kings, Queens and Presidents for over 2000 years? Thats right, the Yo-Yo. Ever since humans have been hunting and gathering, so have they been yoen. The yo-yo is one of the oldest toys, second only to the doll.
Here at The Wooden Yo-Yo.com we dig the yo-yo. Most of us started yoen when we were small, with a Duncan of some sort. My friends and I loved them, and I am sure you did as well. We rocked the cradle, hopped the fence and walked the dog, we were pretty cool. Today the sport has changed tenfold. Innovative individuals and companies have pushed the yo-yo industry into the 21st century with quite a spin.Since the early eighties we started witnessing the introduction of yo-yos with brains, transaxles, and ball bearings...people can now pull off tricks with these new yo's that last upwards of 10 minutes.
The Wooden Yo-Yo.com is not opposed to the use of all of these great new yo-yos, but rather celebrates the use of the old standard, the wooden yo-yo. Wooden yo-yos are great! They feel solid, spin fast, and land tricks smoothly. They too have evolved and been redesigned. Over the years people have developed wooden yo-yos that spin longer, look flashier, and perform better. Many manufacturers still make great wooden yo-yos, check them out in the reviews sections.
If you have not picked up a wooden yo-yo in a while, try it out, see what you think. Wooden yo-yos demand that you develop true mastery of the yo. There is nothing like a woody.
Thanks The Wooden Yo-Yo
