Flash Post: What Goes Up…
What It Is: A DIY craft kit that gives you the chance to customize an old-school wooden yo-yo so you know no other kid (or adult) on the block has stolen your prized throwback possession. Includes two acrylic paints, a paintbrush, the titular yo-yo, and some ideas for how to customize your whirligig before taking it for a spin ‘around the world’ or out to ‘walk the dog’.
Who It’s For: Your precious but electronics-obsessed nephew that you’d like to see away from the television, just this once. Your co-worker’s 30th birthday, as a reminder that there’s a kid inside all of us. Your artsy boyfriend, so he can keep his rarely idle hands busy for hours on end.
What It Costs: The kit retails for $18.
Where It’s At: I spotted it at ‘custom design’ gift shop Module R.
