This yoyo kit gives the classic toy a modern makeover both children and adults will appreciate. Not only is it a do-it-yourself project that makes playing with it even more meaningful, the yoyo kit is comprised of well-designed pieces that could easily be used as decoration in many different settings when not put in use.

Designed by Matthew Tait of TAIT Design Co., the yoyo kit is dubbed Sling-Slang. It provides a grooved steel axle and colorful poly strings, all of which are packed up in a recycled cardboard case. Available in three colors (Classic Black, Azure Blue and Fandango Pink), the parts are made in Michigan. The updated yoyo kit would make a great gift for vintage toy enthusiasts.
