The beautiful Yo-yos hand-crafted by Toys From Times Past are each turned from a single piece of select hard-wood and treated with Danish oil. The beauty and quality of each yo-yo adds to the enjoyment of mastering the art of throwing the yo-yo.

The very first yo-yos seem to have originated in China and were often made of rare ivory with silken cords. Most likely members of royalty or wealthy merchants owned them.

In the late 1700’s the yo-yo became popular throughout Europe and was known as “Quiz.” It was used by fashionable people of all ages and was often very ornate, some having hand painted scenery or inlaid inscriptions.

A fascinating toy, the yo-yo has truly stood the test of time and continues to be popular even today.
