How do you convince your parents to buy you a yoyo?


#1

I wanted to hear how you guys convince your parents to buy you new throws

this is meant to be creative, please don’t judge on how people convince their parents

I either:

Buy them myself

Beg(last resort)

Get good grades, behave, help around the house

Wait for Christmas and my birthday


#2

Beg


#3

Do my chores and extras, like wash the cars,
OR Save up, then ask for some yoyos on my Bday and Christmas or Hanukkah. it helps being Jewish…It really does. :stuck_out_tongue:


(NotATyrant) #4

I don’t have to beg. Since my dad’s been yo-yoing way more than I have, I get his hand-me downs


#5

Lucky Duck…


#6

I do chores, get allowance. Buy them myself.


#7

i’m think i’m too old too ask from them anymore so i buy them myself…


#8

My mother is 80 years old. I can not think of anything I could say to make her buy me a yoyo. ;D

Seriously, I think it is hard to convince a non-yoyo player to spend $150 on a CLYW. So do not try. Ask for money as gifts and for extra work around the house. Then, buy your own.

Tell your parents that your are trying to get $ for a specific yoyo. They will be more likely to help out when they see work being done to achieve a tangible goal.

I don’t. I buy my own stuff…even when I started. Save up. Pick up all the pennies and quarters you see on the floor. [Check the school cafeteria and vending machines]


#10

Ask.


#11

the whole it is better than video games argument is what I use. My parents hate video games


#12

From my own jaundiced parent’s point of view, if you asked for one more than $50 you’d be hard pressed to get more than a curt “No.” from me. Depending on your age, I probably wouldn’t let you spend more than that of your own money for that matter.


#13

I’m the parent now hahaha. If my baby girl asks I shall make it rain YoYos.


#14

Once I make up my mind, that’s it.

I got my kid the Champion Editions G-Funk. He likes it. He prefers his DM2 more.

No sense spending more at the moment. He goes through my cases with regularity.


#15

Good luck to you, sir. :wink:


#16

Me. Adopt. Now!


#17

I imagined the figure would have looked more like ↑. :slight_smile:


#18

Well, considering that my sister (who i live with) has never gotten me a yoyo, other than the bag she let me get (which im not getting until Christmas), i get pretty good grades, i do whatever im told to do around the house, and i don’t get allowance, the fact that i haven’t gotten a new yoyo aside from trades in over a year isn’t surprising.
I think id get called an idiot if i asked for a yoyo just because.


#19

i dont


#20

I convince them by giving them a list of what I want then wait for the holidays or some special event like middle school to high school graduation, Christmas, birthday, Easter you know what I mean. Then its just a waiting game, but if I’m lucky just because I’m being good or nice Aka just because…
But other ways I get yoyos is through cousins and grandparents when there is a Jewish holiday! ( I’m Christian and Jewish so double the presents! ) and my last resort is saving my money up and buying it myself!
