MORE about the exhibit visit
~~~~Black and red wood Duncan Yo-Yos were made in Wisconsin. Come find out where!
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 sessions: part of the Annual Yo-Yo & Skill Toys 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
company of others interested in yo-yos. Don't miss this unique opportunity!
Yo-Yos and Memorabilia: Who knew there were so many kinds!

Royal, Yomega, Kuhn, BC, Fli-Back, Festival, & Dell. Premium & advertising yo-yos,
