“Yoyoing is learning. It is socialization. It is private or performance. It is everything that you can put your power personality behind. It is raw, polite, rude, and an outlet for that personality. Yoyo is for everyone.”
-Chris Allen

Come, join me and re-discover this age-old toy and find your place is the modern world of yoyo. 

Once a fad that washed through schools, yoyo faded but never went away. Instead it moved underground and grew into a more complex hobby.

Walk the Dog, Rock the Baby, Around the World – these classic tricks have grown into a limitless realm of skill and artistry.

 “It helps me relax during a break at work”

“Yoyo helps me improve hand-eye coordination.”

“Yoyoing helps calm me when I’m stressed out.”

“It’s something to fidget with when I’m feeling antsy”

The yoyo has grown up. The old-fashioned wooden yoyo gives way to precision-machined aluminum, ball bearings, and polyester strings. 15 seconds of spin time turns into 30 minutes on a throw! The library of possible tricks has grown from a couple dozen to countless thousands. Hobbyists and Social media influencers, artists and makers, competitors and performers. There’s a place for everyone in yoyo.

-Dale Oliver
