Last year I had a crazy idea. A horoscope themed yoyo. 12 colours, 24 engraving options. I also had the crazy idea to re-make the Infamous Dollar Tree Yoyo (click for that story). So why not combine them!?
The challenge with 12 colours is volume. With the exception of the Gamer, every rain city release has been around 100-150 pieces. For this throw, I made 600. Combined with a simple design and mostly solid colours, that got me a volume discount. So I’m able to offer this throw at a lower than usual price, in the spirit of the original Dollar Tree Yoyo.
There will be 2 editions of this throw.
The DTYY edition will retail for $30 with the full extras package - 3 colourways. Black/gold and red/gold reflecting the original Dollar Tree Yoyo and a blue/orange colour is exclusive to The Monthly Throw. Surprise!
The “What’s Your Sign” edition will retail for $30. Just a yoyo and string. You will have the option of adding the unboxing experience for $10 more. This edition comes in 12 colours, with a total of 30 options.
-Each colour reflects a given month’s birthstone. For that colour, you have the choice of either of the astrological symbols that fall on that month. For example January is a dark red “Garnet” colour, with the option of either the Capricorn or Aquarius symbol (or both if you are born on the cusp date).
