ALL CREDIT FOR THIS POST GOES TO JACOB HOLLIS. FROM THEYO.COM. I just thought this was totally cool so I am passing this on.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to take your yoyo… and pass it on. The goal here is to infect the rest of the world with the fun of yoyoing. So follow these three steps to keep theyo alive, and the yoers lively.
Grab a yoyo. Ideally, it should not require pads that need replacing, and the bearing should work. Really, we’re looking to give out beginner’s yoyos. This does not have to be yours, and it does not have to be bought from a store. Whichever beginner yoyo you can get your hands on, I suppose.
Paint or write with a sharpie, yoyoexpert.com, on the yoyo. You want this to be visible, so that it’s like an advertisement that you can throw. This is important!
Give it away. What you want to do is do some really flashy cool tricks at the mall or, better yet, a smaller, quiet place like a mcdonald’s or a cafe. You want young teens to see you yoyo, and you want them hooked. 10 to 12 is a great age group to target. Once you get a really cool looking guy or girl hooked, give it to him. Tell him go to yoyoexpert.com to buy more, and show him how to throw. Make sure you teach him like rock the baby and walk the dog, so that he’ll want to show his friends. Tell him he can search online to find new tricks from the masters.
The goal, again, is to infect the world with the fun of yoyoing. If the cool teens do it, so will everyone else. And if one out of 50 people sticks with it, so be it. At least you got the one. Good luck with your mission.
Lets do this peeps.
