MORE about your visit
~~~~Black and red wood Duncan Yo-Yos were made in Luck, Wisconsin. 
Ever wonder why they are all different sizes? 
See originals here and then we can answer that question when you attend one
of the exhibition convention sessions:
part of the 19th Annual Yo-Yo & Skill Toy Convention, Burlington, Wisconsin.

Many early Duncan Yo-Yos also had the name "tops" on them because yo-yos 
are "return tops." See a thousand old and new yo-yos, patches, string packages, 
awards, posters and related memorabilia and enjoy the
