National Yo-Yo Day
History of the Yo-Yo
The origin of the yo-yo is still under argument but documentaries that have been made show that it came from Greece. It is rumored that it was used as a weapon for hunting game or other land animals. Although Physics may prove the use of the yoyo as a hunting tool to be ineffective, the concept of being able to retry a missed throw of an object was still an amazing feat. But people still have, to this day, believed it to be a weapon. The yoyos was actually first made by the Duncan yoyo demonstrators in the 1930s and the yoyo today is now considered a weapon due to the Duncan brothers making up the rumor of it being a weapon, this was done as a marketing strategy. Since the time of the Duncan brother’s making of the rumor, people have tried to use it as a weapon but in all cases it has failed. The rumor still stands today and many people still believe but it in fact isn’t more than a child’s toy.
