Who knew? 😊
I remember playing with yo-yo’s as a kid. I was so excited when I could get that thing sliding up and down that string fast and furious with ease.
According to National Calendar Days website, it is believed the yo-yo was first invented in ancient Greece.
The yo-yo came to the United States through a young boy by the name of Pedro Flores. When he immigrated to the United States from the Philippines as a young boy, he recalled playing with a toy called a bandalore. The toy inspired Flores to create a business, and he called it the Flores Yo-Yo.
What is your memory of playing with yo-yo’s?
