Vintage Gold Yoyo

$1,050

For the person who has everything, a vintage gold yoyo in its original leather carrying case. Yoyos originated either in Ancient Greece or China. The first yoyo patent in the US was issued in the mid 19th century, but the craze for yoyos really began in the 1920s when a Filipino immigrant named Pedro Flores popularized the toy. Fun fact: "Yoyo" means "Come back" in Tagalog, a native language of the Philippines where, centuries ago, it was used as a weapon (slightly different design to the one you see here that involved shark edges, studs and heavy long ropes).
