Duncan’s 80th Anniversary World Tour
The 80th Anniversary World Tour still has a month left and has been a great success. It started early this year with Takeshi & Bride traveling the globe documenting the yo-yo scene around the world and filming tutorials featuring nearly the entire Duncan Crew Worldwide. Then over summer the Duncan Crew traveled the USA to demonstrate and teach at Toys R Us’ around the country. With a lot of Toys R Us’ left to perform at, and a TON of other toy stores we began the Fall leg of the tour. Appearing at air force bases, children museums, street fairs, and the National Yo-Yo contest this year Duncan has shown that after 80 years we still hold on to our tradition of the traveling demonstrators of our past.
