No one could really pinpoint where yoyo originated, although it has been said that it originated from China. The origin of this toy can be traced back to those "hunting days". They used it to hunt for animals, and for self defense at the same time.
Who would have known that many centuries later, the yoyo would become a famous toy? It could even be played professionally by skillful players, plus more modern designs have been made out of the toy over the years. Some yoyos even have blinking lights for added effects. In some places there are even yoyo competitions held for enthusiasts.
