TODAY IS YO-YO DAY
Yo-Yo Day is celebrated annually on the 6th June. It is no coincidence that this corresponds with the birthday of famous entrepreneur Donald Duncan Sr, who in the 1930s, got into the yo-yo business.
Yo-yos have been around 2,000 years and were known under different names such as quizzes or bandalores. Nevertheless, the origin of the yo-yo appears to stem from the Philippines and the earliest entry of the word appears in a Filipino dictionary in the early 1860s.
In the 1920s, Pedro Flores (a man with Filipino roots) began constructing yo-yos in America. He was stunned with how American youngsters and adolescents took to the toy and started mass producing the product. Yo-yos are firmly embedded into toy culture across the globe.
