By D. Blankenship HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on July 1, 2011
It has been years since I owned our used a Duncan Imperial yoyo. I was wondering through the local Wally World store the other day and spotted them hanging there on a rack in all their glory. On a whim I bought three of them. They were only three dollars each and I figured why not.

Over the past week or so I have been giving them quite a workout, driving both my wife and dogs crazy; which truth be told is sort of half the fun of it.

Now I have several yoyos stashed around the house that I play with, some good, some better and some great. The intent of this review though is not to compare these yoyos as the prices of the ones I already own is significant.

I found these Imperials to be just fine and dandy and they did the job they were suppose to do, which in reality is to provide an inexpensive pleasurable pastime for kids and big people, and to provide the initial yoyo exposure to see if the young ones actually take to the things before you lay out big bucks for a nicer one.

I found that these yoyos performed all of the basic tricks quite well. Gravity pull, the throw down, the sleeper, the forward pass, walking the dog, around the world and around the corner; all were a piece of cake. I found that the sleep time to be adequate for all of these tricks. Using all three of the yoyos; testing each I found the sleep time ranged from 10 seconds to a little under 15 seconds. It must be remembered that the string needs to be unwound quite often, (The sleeping beauty or flying saucer is great for this as it does the job with the benefit of actually looking like a trick).

My daughter (16) received a low quality Yo-Yo as a gift and started to do fairly well with it. It was clear from the start that Yo-Yo was not so well balanced and was not one that she would be able to to use to do a lot of tricks. She bought two Duncan Yo-Yo's, this one, the Imperial, and the butterfly yo yo.

This Yo-Yo made a big difference from the cheaper one she had right away. Even my wife and I were able to do basic tricks with the Duncan Yo-Yos and my daughter is able to do some fairly cool things with it.

This is a great low tech toy (no batteries required) that can still entertain kids. It has "passed the test of time".

Highly Recommended!

I am a bit amazed that so many complain about this yo-yo "not working properly". Looks like a lot of folks forgot how a yo-yo actually works. Even more amazing that in this day and age of YouTube instructional videos and online resources, people are so ignorant of how to search for "fixes". Makes me sad that so many in the US have become so ignorant and lazy. First off, the yo-yo is SUPPOSED to go down and spin. It was DESIGNED to do this. Secondly, you must throw the yo-yo down with some force-effort so that it DOES spin. You can't just let it drop on it's own and expect it to come back up. Once the yo-yo is down and spinning simply jerk your hand down and upwards to have it return. Honest folks, this AIN'T brain surgery. The product is fine, even if it is made in China. Think about this...if it were made in USA it would probably cost $20-$30. So quit griping and learn how to use it.

Someone at work bought a yoyo and told me he could not get it to return, and could not even wind it. I asked him to show it to me. In a few seconds I got it wound, sleeping, walking the dog, rocking the cradle, looping etc. This renewed my interest in yoyo's. His was a Duncan Butterlfy, but I have since bought several Duncan Imperials (One of each color), and many many more of the more complicated bearing, trans-axial, clutch, etc. yoyos. It all began with Duncan, and this is the one (originally made of wood) that started it all. These are no longer Made in the USA, but they still work well. You should be able to do the basics with this yoyo. If you need a more complicated yoyo to do the simple tricks, then how good are you really?

Some advice:
Always buy extra string. It's not a question of if your yoyo string will break, but when. You want to be ready with spare string when this happens, and not sitting around waiting for string to be delivered. String is a disposable commodity. Don't treat it like a collectible.

Cut your yoyo to the proper length for the user. About 2 inches (4 cm) above the navel is good. So many people don't do this and then complain "The yoyo is too long for my young child!" Cutting the string to the proper length is right on the back of the Duncan Package. This means if you have multiple children of varying heights, they should each have their own yoyo, or all learn to use the shortest string (It's easier for a tlal person to use a short string, and dangerous for a short person to use a long string.) This goes for Daddy and Mommy too.

On a whim, I bought this Yo-Yo as a Christmas stocking stuffer for my 15 year old. Just a silly toy for the sock. Guess what happened? He plays with this dang Yo-Yo more than the Xbox! Just goes to show you, the classics never go out of style! It was also cool showing him tricks I remembered from 40 years ago. Score!
