I've been sorting through some old "stuff" this afternoon, all those things that you can't bear to part with, shove in a bag or the back of a drawer, and then find many many years later & wonder "why on EARTH did I keep this?"
I remember collecting coke ring pulls for what felt like forever to get my red spinner, and the coke promotions team coming to our school. If you could do a certain number of tricks, you could win a silver, or even a gold spinner. Somehow I won the gold one. I don't know how, I can remember being pretty bad, even then. I could do "Round the World", which was just whizzing it round in a big circle at the end of the string. Now, it's about all I can do to get it to come back up!
Did you have one? Can you remember how to jailbreak a "normal" yoyo & turn it into a trick one? And could you ever actually do any of the tricks?
