1. A Bit of Yo Yo History
The yo yo is one of the oldest toys around and it dates back to 500BC. It was found to have existed in Ancient Greece based on archeological evidences found on vase paintings. The first yo yos were made of terra cotta disks.Yo yos made from rocks were used as hunting weapons in the Philippines during the 16th century. The hunters hunt from trees by throwing rock yo yos at wild animals that walk beneath the trees.One of the first toys to be brought into space was the yo yo. One lucky yellow yo yo went on the space shuttle Discovery in 1985 when the crew members went on their space mission that year. Astronaut David Griggs was the first man to play the yo yo in outer space and demonstrated the effects of weighlessness on a swinging yo yo.
2. Yo yo
Here are some of the basic rules and tricks on how to play with the yo yo.Before you start playing with your yo yo, you must check the area around you and make sure you have plenty of space. Stay clear of windows and other breakable objects. Be careful your yo yo does not hit anybodys head otherwise you will be in a lot of trouble.
3. Tying the Slip Knot
The yo yo string comes with a small loop on one end. Before playing the yo yo, you need to make a slip knot on the string so that it attaches securely on your finger. Pull the main part of the string through the small loop to make another bigger loop. Put your finger through the bigger loop and tighten the slip knot around you finger.
4. Hold the Yo yo
Put the yo yo in the centre of your palm. Your palm should be facing up and the string on the yo yo should be coming from the top of your yo yo.
5. The sleeper
Snap your wrist and arm downwards so that the yo yo falls towards the floor. Keep your arm above your waist.When the yo yo reaches the other end of the string, turn your palm so that it faces downwards.The yo yo should spin at the bottom of the string. This is called The Sleeper.Give the string a tug and the yo yo will come back up into your hand.Practise The Sleeper a few more times before you go on to the other tricks. You can also watch the video below on how to do The Sleeper with the yo yo.
