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!

What better way to start of the YoYoFactory Rocky Mountain Tour then, in the Rockies! As part of the tour, we set up at the USASA Snowboard National Contest in Copper, CO. 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.








Even the winners were throwing YoYoFactory on the podium!

Jason Lee is known for quite a few things in life… some of which we can mention here. US National Champion. Trick Innovator. Veteran. Yo-Yo Demonstrator. Photographer… and World Traveler. In the past few years Jason has been on many adventures, in many parts of the world. He’s beautifully documented his experiences in photography and descriptions on Facebook. From the Great Pyramids to the Eiffel Tower, Red Square to the markets of Vietnam and probably every country that ends in -stan. Through all his travels, he’s always carried a yo-yo. He has literally been around the world with it, and he wouldn’t have it any other way. Check out this rare glimpse into his travels as Jason shows some tricks and answers some questions in the middle of the desert in China.



Thanks to Trinity Yoyo Club for curating this interview.

On a recent trip to San Fransisco Ann Connolly shot this great video with our friend Jake Wiens of The Ken Garden. Awesome shots at very cool locations with a great yo-yo, the H.O.T., and of course the tricks look good too!

When we set out to design the Ricochet we wanted to make a classic. The material is Titanium. Known for it’s amazing strength and luster. The performance is in the play, not in a complicated shape. A modern classic, for the players of today and the future.


Not only does Titanium have a low density, it’s very strong. It’s naturally lustrous and is recognized for its high strength-to-weight ratio which gives us the ability to have less weight in the wall, and more where it counts, on the rim. Traditionally it is used in aerospace products such as airplane wing supports and jet engines, as well as in armor plating. It also has a ‘feel’ unlike anything else you can make a yoyo from. It feels special because it is special. So special in fact, we numbered every yo-yo. 1 of 500.


March 17th 2013 Worldwide Release Date. Approx $199 USD.


Only one question remains…. Would you take advantage of the ability to throw sparks when you Walk the Dog or covet it, in its’ display case?
