The major upswings in yoyos happened in ~30 year increments. Late 20s/early 30s with Flores, mid-60s, and late 90s. Think we’ll see another in 10 or so years?
It seems like each time had something new associated with it. They were brand new when Pedro Flores introduced them to America. In the mid-60s, could an influx of television commercials have been the cause? And surely the advent of personal computers on a wide scale helped blow yoyos up in the 90s. What’ll it take next time?
