|Did you know?... The yo-yo is a toy that has been around for a long time.
A vase from ancient Greece shows a boy playing with a yo-yo. The modern yo-yo
was made popular by Pedro Flores, a Filipino immigrant to the United States.
Flores started manufacturing them in his factory in California in 1928.
The yo-yo is popular with older children, as there are many tricks you can do a
yoyo that require practice and skill. Some of the more popular yo-yo
tricks are "the sleeper", and "walking the dog."
