Image: Yo-Yo World Trick Book: Featuring 50 of the Most Popular Yo-Yo Tricks | Paperback: 96 pages | by Harry Baier (Author). Publisher: Dover Publications; Reprint edition (June 18, 2014)National Yo-Yo Day
-- America owes its fascination with the yo-yo mainly to Chicago businessman Donald F. Duncan Sr., who spotted it while on a business trip to San Francisco in 1928. It was being used by Pedro Flores, a Philippine immigrant who began selling a toy labeled with the name, yo-yo, meaning come-come in the native language of the Philippines. By early 1929, Flores had secured financing, set up his own firm and manufactured more than 100,000 wooden toys, and trademarked the name yo-yo. Flores realized people had to be shown how to use a yo-yo before they would buy it. So he hired a team of fellow yo-yo masters to demonstrate the toy's amazing tricks!
