'Walk the dog', 'rock the baby' 'taking out the trash'. No supid, i am not just listing my daily chores for Tuesday, these are all classic yo-yo tricks of course, and bad-ass ones at that.
Like many a 90's child, i used to love to play yo-yo. It was literally a toy for all occasions, and could spice up any usually boredom bound situation, at home, at Grandma's house, at school (at least until they were banned after one boy hit a seagull performing a particularly airborne move. There were feathers everywhere- but still James Sinclair is still the only boy at Wadebridge High to successfully pull off the 'Sea-Goal'). And so, lured in no small way by the tag line you can read above, "have you still got the nack?", i was intriuged. Did i still have the nack, all these years on? Knack-right i did!
As our house recently decided to have a 'games' party, on top of all the old party classics, Twister, Bop-It, Chess, we also invested in Yo-Yos- and a wise investment it proved to be. The Yo-Yos went down a storm. The punters loved them, even managing to draw some of the male partiers away from watching girls bending over at the Twister station, no easy feat, I'll say.
These Yo-Yos in particular are great. They come in packs of two, so you dont have to play all lonely and on your own- because, afterall, nothing will get stuff thrown at you as quickly as doing Yo-Yo in the street on your own. They also have the ball-bearing mechanism which allows the Yo-Yo-er (?) to perform the 'sleeper' manouver, which is staple to performing the trickier moves, like the 'around the world' or the 'spinny cooper'.
So, i can highly reccomend this Laughing Donkey pack of two Yo-Yos as a great investment for party or personal use alike. Although, if being used in a party scenario, then keep the Yo-Yos away from drunken guests as it can result in someone being hit in the face and the reoccurence of a particular seagull based flash-back. That poor girl never saw it coming, just like that poor gull. Why did she have to be wearing that feather boa? There were feathers everywhere...
Not one, but two clutch controlled Yo Yo's! It was so easy all those years ago, have you still got the nack?
