Those aged 25-30 surely remember the childhood days spent playing with the multi-coloured yo-yos and the attempt of mastering the secrets of this timeless classic. Yo-yos had a bit of a quiet time during the last 15 years but something has just changed thanks to Tait Design Co.. which had decided to bring the yo-yo back to life. Tait Design Co. is a Detroit based design company headed by Matthew Tait which produces some great products (like Turbo Flyer, a model aeroplane previously featured on The Dieline) and the Sling-Slang YOYO is their latest offering that has captured our attention.
The Sling-Slang YOYO is crafted from hard maple and is aimed at the beginner to intermediate level of YoYo lovers. It features a removable, grooved steel axle which comes as a kit with two strikingly vibrant cotton-poly strings in a screen printed recycled cardboard velcro-lock case. All of the screen-printing is done by hand and everything included the packaging is assembled in Detroit, Michigan.
