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.

    I really like your post today about remembering the kid in all of us. With life’s pressures it is sometimes hard to step away for a moment and remember our playful sides. Thanks for the reminder! #CGG

    Remember those classic yo-yo tricks like “Walk the Dog” or “Around the World”? Fond childhood memories! #cgg

    Yo young is great fun, great idea to personalize it. I remember when the yo yo an would do tricks in front of the local store and give out free yo’s yo’s. The yo yo man thinking back was probably only 16. Way back when… #cgg
