Chinese Yo-Yo


The new 6th and 7th grade thing to do is Chinese yo-yos.  If you go outside to the quad you can see many people use the Chinese yo-yos. Some people are very skilled at using the toy and others are just figuring out how to use them. Another name for the Chinese yo-yos is the diabolo, but the technical name for Chinese yo-yos is, Kongzhu. There are many different nicknames for Chinese yo-yos but there were just the few that were listed. The history of playing with this toy dates back from a thousand years ago, but gradually got passed down. Now some 6th and 7th graders use the toy in their own free time.  

You can purchase the yo-yo from p.e and the office for $25. You can also get a bag for the yo-yos for $10.
