National Yoyo Day– The Greeks Invented this too!


June 6th is National Yo-yo day, celebrating the second oldest toy known to humankind that originated in Ancient Greece.

Several images of children playing with the stringed toys are found on vases in museums throughout the world and actual ancient yo-yos exist at the National Historical Museum in Athens that’s over two-thousand years old, and another at the Metropolitan Museum in New York City.

Play a yo-yo today and remember– the Greeks invented this too!
