History of the Yo-Yo:

Bandalores have been around for over twenty-five hundred years. In ancient Greece, the toy was made out of wood or terracotta and decorated with pictures of Greek Gods.

In the Philippines bandelores were used for 400 years as a weapon with sharp edges and studs attatched to it.

In the 1920s Pedro Flores, gentleman from the Phillipines moved to California and massed produced bandelores as wooden toys, calling them yo-yos. By 1962 the name yo-yo became a household name and sold over 45 million units that year.

Little known fact: The yo-yo was the first toy ever to be in outer space.
