June 10 – National Yo-Yo Day

Middle school…that is what yo-yos make me think of. Man they were popular. I could do some tricks, the Eiffel Tower, Walk the dog, Cat in the Cradle…but I was no expert. I had a green yo-yo that I remember saving my money for and going to the Mackinaw Island Kite Company to buy!

(I was almost this good)

Did you know the yo-yo is considered to be the second oldest toy in the world, only behind the doll…although the yo-yo as we know it didn’t appear until about 1930 – the original Duncan Yo-Yo.
