Most can remember the joy a yoyo bought at age ten, when its simple yet effective design provided hours of entertainment. Society has been enjoying the toy for centuries – the first of its kind dating back as far as 500 BC, when the humble yoyo was created from terracotta skin discs. Now yoyos are typically created from plastic or wood and are the perfect way to impress your friends, and the ladies, with your mad skills. This kit could be your second chance at finally succeeding at yoyo tricks like ‘Walk the Dog’ or the ‘Man on the Flying Trapeze’.
The Design Your Own Yoyo Kit is pretty self-explanatory – the box comes fitted with a perfectly formed wooden yoyo and all the materials necessary to transform it from hum drum to spectacular. Use the acrylic paints and paintbrush inside to give your yoyo a makeover; whether it be in the form of racing stripes or something more elaborate, is all up to its creator.
The kit is available from GOMA’s store and website.
