Twin Pack Light up Yo-yo’s
What a great way to spend time with the kids, this pack of 2 light up yo-yo’s are excellent value for money and gave us hours of fun practicing our tricks (not very successfully). They’re even more fun if you turn out all the lights and close the curtains and play with them in the dark….
Initial Thoughts: I’ll be honest, I really didn’t think my two would be overly excited by these light up Yo-yo’s with so many toys being electronic these days. The packaging that they came in was quite basic and in the box they didn’t look like anything out of the ordinary.
We liked: In the end I’m not sure who enjoyed these more, Dad or the kids, he tried to relive his youth by showing us all the tricks he used to be able to do when he was a boy. We loved the fact that they lit up and we ended up playing with them in the dark to get the full effect and I like that you get two yo-yo’s in a pack, it’s perfect for us as there’s no arguing about whose turn it is and whose had a longer turn.
We weren’t keen : I’ll be honest for this price, I really can’t fault them. In fact, if they glammed up the packaging a bit more, I would think people would pay more for them.
Overall : Extremely good value for money, we’ve played with them a few times since we got them and it really is good old fashioned family fun – not a games console in sight. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a fun, good value money gift.
