FAQ:

Q: How do you play Yoyo?

A: A yo-yo is played by holding the free end of the string known as the handle (by inserting one finger—usually the middle or index finger—into a slip knot) allowing gravity (or the force of a throw and gravity) to spin the yo-yo and unwind the string (similar to how a pullstring works).

Q: How do you use a yoyo?

A: Throw a strong sleeper. This is the first step to doing string tricks — most involve a “sleeping” yo-yo: one that is just spinning on the end of the string (sometimes for minutes on end). The idea is to thrust out the yo-yo and keep it from coming back to you until you want it to.

Q: Who invented the Yo-Yo?

A: The word yo yo is actually derived from the Philippine language word yoyo’. The birth of the modern yo yo was made in 1928 when a Filipino American Pedro Flores who started a manufacturing company in Santa Barbara, California that made the yo yo’ . Soon this company was making 300,000 units that was the output of 600 employees.

Q: What is the Yoyo system?

A: The response system is what makes the yo-yo return to the player’s hand or ‘wake up’. When you throw the yo-yo, the grip of the response system on the string is what transmits the force from the string to the yo-yo body to start the yo-yo spinning as it falls.
