Are there any Canadians on here that know of any stores that sell yoyos and or replacement parts (like bearings, response pads, string, etc.)?
YoYoExpert ships to Canada.
I think he wants an actual store.
Hey man, where in Canada do you live? I live in Toronto, I know couple of stores downtown, they have some yyj and yyf and few others … So if you’re in Toronto area send me a PM and well pick it up from there
We can’t name any other yo-yo companies on the YYE forums. Think about it.
You’re talking to OP right ?
Just making sure you guys don’t actually post the names here or the mods get angry lol.
But then again, I find it funny when the mods flip out.
there’s a whole thread on physical stores I think they don’t want you posting online stores. I may be wrong though.
I’m in Ottawa, and I meet all my yoyo needs with YYE.
There’s one store locally that has an OK selection of Duncans (Raptor, for example) but that’s about it. For strings, just generic slick-6 multi-color packs. No bearings, axles, or anything specialized like that.
So yeah, YYE.
Physical stores? I thought you meant online Canadian yo-yo stores.
In that case, the only store I can think about is Toys R Us. Not sure if they have those up there. Good selection of cheap yo-yo’s to use or in case you need parts fast.
Alas, selection may vary. I was at one that had a few Yomegas, a few Yo-Yos, and that was it.
I guess it varies too. The one I went to had a whole rack section full of yo-yo’s. Duncan and Yomega.
Oh, yeah forgot about that rule
If you’re talking online stores, I can say this: there are no Canadian online stores that touch YYE for price and selection, even counting shipping. I recently discovered during a transaction with a fellow Canadian that shipping within Canada is a hair more expensive than shipping cross-border.
I went to this one Hobby shop down here in PA and they had some Yoyojam’s, but they’re closed now. :’(
