Cool Yoyo Video to Inspire Young kid(s)


#1

Hello,

I am going to give a yoyo to my friend’s 8 year old son, and I was wondering if there’s a cool yoyo video that I can inspire him with. Something that takes you thru the simple tricks, and gives a glimpse of the harder tricks, like brain twister, and maybe even atomic bomb… not a tutorial video, but more something that shows ‘this can be done’, and then if the kid gets more interested we can take it from there.

also, and a bit unrelated… is that i have $50 to spend at A2Z store in Northampton MA, and i really want to get a yoyo or 2 that are great for beginners. maybe 1 that is super basic, and then something else that has a lot more potential.

Well this is of me when I was 10 if you want someone close to his age. I looked pretty young I think…

It got me 7th place in MN states 2009. I can try and find something from 08 but there isn’t that much stuff.
Edit: Nope 09 is the earliest video of me still left.

Any Hiroyuki Suzuki video should do.

Any Jensen kimmitt or Steve brown videos will do.

Guys… He asked for a video of simple tricks… Not the worlds greatest players doing unbelievable tricks…

You don’t want to traumatize him with the video, so you don’t want it to be TOO complicated, so I honestly suggest the Fast 201 YYF video is a good choice… It has simple tricks, done in a fancy way, can’t go wrong for an 8 year old

I agree with yoing4lyf. The Fast 201 video would probably be perfect. if not that, maybe the promotional video for the YYF ONE. It definitely has some good complicated moments, but I don’t think it’s too bad. It would work for what you want. In the end, promotional videos for beginner yoyos is what you’re looking for. They’re probably your best bet.
