At my age (31), an eight year old kid can definitely beat my yoyo skills. Ouch! Truth can be embarrassing most of the times. Nevertheless, it has to be accepted and truth is... I am not an expert when it comes to this type of thing (at least, not yet!).
I can still remember the good old days when my classmates and I gather in front of our classroom during break time and show each others yoyo style. During those days and up to this moment, the only trick I have are the basic and the back flip. I have tried to teach myself many times how to do the yoyo dog walk and spider web but have never been successful in any of them.
My boyfriend's friend who spends most of his time in the UK has told me about this yo yo shop where he has purchased a number of yoyos for him, his brother and nephew some time in 2009. Just listening to how he talks about this yoyo shop, he is obviously satisfied with the great customer service he has received from them. Aside from that, he also likes this company's free and quick delivery services. Since he is staying in London until the last week of this month, he's thinking of ordering a beginner yoyo for me to play when I am not doing anything at all. Yes! I can again try some yoyo tricks! Who knows? I might just get better on this and avoid getting beaten by an eight year old kid from my neighborhood!
