Finally! Here's the next installment of Yo-yo Day, all about picking up and putting down and picking up and putting down...
We found the cloth base to the baby gym from this past yo-yo. We'd wrapped a glass lamp in it when we moved, and it was hidden in a box.
We outsmarted ourselves with multipurposing, and left that box unopened for too long. But the base has now also been donated.
The digital camera yo-yo found new life and energy at our Explorers' Technojunk day. The kids take apart any old technical junk we can find, and they loved discovering the insides of this camera.
The dragon yo-yo is now guarding an outdoor rose plant. They can both be prickly, and they don't seem to mind.
The yo-yo power is strong in this one.
Yes, the china cup and saucer (the inaugural yo-yo) did not leave our house until last week.
I couldn't think of a use for them.
I tried several times to sell them on TradeMe.
But at last I tucked them in with a pretty collectible plate (also worth something, probably) and I sent them all to seek their fortune in my favourite charity shop.
As a memento of my grandmother, I still have two of her hair ribbons.
