In the ever-growing Russian Yo-Yo scene we constantly see new players with skill and determination working their way to the top. Because of this, we have a YoYoFactory Junior Team in Russia. Ilya Matros is one of the rising stars in Russia, and in his newest video part, you can see why.

We’ve been on the road for our 2nd week of the YoYoFactory Rocky Mountain Tour. This week we are in Fort Collins, working with 2 of our great retailers, Learning Express and  Science Toy Magic. Throughout the week we performed at local area schools and did in-store classes afterwards.

 

On Saturday we had our big Yo-Yo Contest at Learning Express, followed by performances at Science Toy Magic. We had a great crowd and tons of awesome new Yo-Yo players! Next we’ll be in Colorado Springs so be sure to check out the info on demos and contests HERE

The competitors get ready to show their new skills to the crowd. Some of these participants had only been yo-yoing for less than a week.

As each competitor went through their tricks, it was apparent that they had picked up some major skill with their new modern ball bearing YoYoFactorys.

After the Classic tricks we moved onto showcasing what Modern yo-yo is like. These guys showed off their tricks in freestyles and really impressed the crowd!

From the minute we set up, people were hanging out playing Yo-Yo. Quite a few people already had skills and were throwing modern unresponsive YoYoFactory.
