Check out the yo-yo in action:
The yo-yos are high quality Duncan Pro-Yos with wooden axles and unscrewable halves for easy access to knots. With the wood axle, the yo-yo’s are good loopers and decent sleepers.
Why a West St. Paul Reader yo-yo? In a prior life, West St. Paul Reader Founder and Editor Kevin D. Hendricks was a professional yo-yo man. He performed throughout high school and during a college summer in Chicago, he spent weekends as a yo-yoing street performer. While he hung up the sting professionally, he still has a fondness for yo-yos, and can often be found killing time between city council meetings with a yo-yo in hand.
Here’s our previous celebration of National Yo-yo Day.
