The yo-yo is a popular toy consisting of a length of string tied at one end to a flat spool. Companies enjoy giving away promotional gifts where logos are highly visible and the centre of attraction. Apart from spinning at the middle of the toy, we can also add lights and sound to draw more attention to the logo.
It is played by holding the free end of the string (usually by inserting one finger in a slip knot) and pulling at it so as to cause the spool to turn whilst suspended in mid-air, either taking up or releasing the string. First made popular in the 1920s, yo-yoing is still very much enjoyed by both children and adults, though it was originally made as a children’s toy.
In the simplest play, the string is initially wound on the spool by hand; the yoyo is then thrown downwards so that it first descends unwinding the string, then (by inertia) climbs back winding it up; and finally the yo-yo is grabbed, ready to be thrown again. Many other trick plays exist, most based on the basic sleeper trick.
There are many different types of yo-yos made of different materials.
