I spent Sundays just cleaning our garage again and sorting out things which will go to the dump and those I can still find useful. I have some in the bags that need to find a good home. It was so surprising to see how much rubbish we accumulated over the years and they are just taking up space in the garage. Good thing I had the momentum of tidying it up. Haven't finished yet and tomorrow is my last day to get it sorted.
This is a "yoyo*, a toy consisting of two disks connected together by an axle and a looped string tied to the axle. There are many techniques and tricks in using this toy. Youtube alone has a horde of videos featuring those tricks. I posted this however because of the origin of this toy. This is actually an ancient weapon used by Filipinos but eventually evolved as a toy. It was mainstreamed when it was brought to the United States by a Filipino to mass produce it and market it to the Americans.
