Today is National Yo-Yo Day. In honor of this fun day, here is a helpful tip brought to you by the Hand Critters.
While you are at it, here is a page with easy yo-yo tricks to start you on your path to mastery. You can also impress your audience with some great trivia about this popular toy: Did you know that three U.S. presidents (Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon) showed off their yo yoing skills while in office? And why not mention yo-yo’s obscure origins: some say it originated in China around 500-1000 B.C., but others point to circa 500 B.C. Greece. What do you think?
