Go All In With The POKER FACE by Whimsy!


#1

Whimsy is a new yo-yo manufacturer based in Hong Kong, and their goal is to tell the public that yo-yo is not merely a skill toy, but a combination of fashion, popular culture, and a collection of artistic value. They’re kicking things off with some really nice branding, packaging and of course an amazing design! This is their first model, The Poker Face!

The playing card inspired Poker Face has a really one of a kind look and feel. Whimsy wanted to introduce more of a sense of individuality into the yo-yo society, and that is exactly what they did. The Poker Face screams individuality and uniqueness with the cool playing card inspired caps and the option of a flocked version or acid washed. It is definitely a yo-yo that will spark up some conversation!

And the Poker Face doesn’t just look cool, but it plays great too! Whimsy gave it a nice organic shape for that extra “floaty” feel during play and precision weight distribution for increased stability through those long combos. The Poker Face truly plays at a competition level and will compliment any style.

Flocked Version (Fabric Covered): About 2-3 grams heavier.

The Whimsy Poker Face is sure to be a standout in any collection and will not disappoint!

Well if you imagined getting another $25 yoyo at some point you could just spend the $100 all at once. I highly doubt the price will go down much. Most High Quality metal yoyo’s are $100 or more.

Yeah I never seen yo prices lower

Price wouldn’t be lowered retail so that won’t happen. I played one of these at MA States and its well worth the money. It plays really well.
