If you think the yoyo was an ‘80s fad then think again! The yo yo is as popular as ever and the boundaries of what can be done are being pushed all the time by technological advancements. We sell only the best yo-yos, our even basic beginner’s models are quality bits of kit. We also stock top of the range yoyos, and everything in between, for all disciplines and from the best manufacturers in the world including; YoYo Jam, YoYo Factory and Duncan. For a guide to what yoyo to buy have a look here.
Modern yoyos come in a variety of forms to suit different styles of play. These styles have been divided up into a series of categories:
1A – String tricks with a single yoyo
2A – Double looping yoyos
3A – String tricks with two yoyos
4A – Offstring yoyo play
5A – Free hand yo yo-ing
1A: For this style of play you need a yo yo with a long sleep time. This gives you the time you need to perform those complicated string tricks. The more advanced string trick yoyos require a binding trick to return the yoyo to the hand.
2A: Looping yoyos don’t require long sleep times as the yo yo is kept in constant motion being sent from the hand and looped inside and outside of the arms. 2A is possibly the most spectacular yo-yo division.
4A: Offstring yoyo shares more than a small similarity with diabolo. The yoyo can leave the string to be caught in loads of different ways. Many off string yoyos are large and have a flared butterfly shape to help catches.
5A: With a freehand, or counterweight, yo yo the player can let go of the string entirely allowing a whole new realm of tricks to be opened up!
Firetoys have the most helpful staff to speak to. I called Firetoys and the chap talked me through the right weight, stick material, bearings or not and price range that we would need to look at. The diabolos are perfectly right for our children and I really appreciate the help choosing. I would definitely use Firetoys again and highly recommend.
I'm totally satisfied about the item I received and about how the delivery has been handled. The parcel has been properly delivered in a few days. Thanks a lot.
Both items received are excellent and the helpful phone call and following service were second to none. Many thanks!
It came exactly as described, promptly and without excess packaging. Really accurately described! I'm really excited to play with my new toy and exceptionally pleased with the buying and delivery process. Thank you Firetoys for a great purchase experience!!
Your customer service is outstanding, as always. This is why I shop through you and always have done, despite (occasionally) being informed of cheaper outlets, I could never expect the same quality of service from them.
Everything I had hoped for and more! I will definitely buy from you guys again as soon as I get better at juggling. Thanks!
Having experienced this level of customer care for which I am very grateful, I can confidently recommend Firetoys to my colleagues and friends. Many thanks
Amazing and friendly customer service and beautiful great quality equipment. Bought a couple of hoops from here and both are great - when I had a very unlikely issue it was solved straight away
