The Official BF yo-yo thread. 😁

Even though a Duncan yo-yo is both classic and vintage, I didn’t think a yo-yo thread in the C&V forum would last long. 🤔😉

I just found this one today, in a grocery store, for the princely sum of $3.39!!! And it’s even blue, lol. 😁😎😁

So post ‘em if ya got ‘em, show us your yo-yos. 🙂

Can't find the one with the two AA batts that lighted up.
Apparently all yo-yos can teach us something.

Crazy flash back to fourth, third? grade - we all had an obsession with yo-yos. Don't know where it came from, seems like one kid brought one in and it blossomed from there. The Yo-Yo to have was one of the self-retracting models.

I was reading up a little, after starting this thread, and there are definitely “better” ones than my “classic” Butterfly. But those ones are for cheaters, who don’t have proper skilz. 😁😉

I couldn’t help noticing this sign today, since I rode right by it. 🙄😁🙂 Close enough, or no cigar? 😉
