Are you looking for something different to try with your kiddos this summer? We recently tried out these really cool diabolo yo-yos from Kickfire Classics. We had a ton of fun playing with these and learning how they work. It’s a lot more fun than sitting in the house playing on the tablets or watching TV. I love finding fun ways to get the kids out of the house and off their electronics so this was a perfect way to get them up and moving and learning something fun and unique.
So the Diabolo is like a Chinese yo-yo. You use the sticks with a rope attached to make the yo-yo spin. Once you master the spin then you can move on to learn tricks with it. Sounds hard? I know but it wasn’t really as hard as you would think. Kickfire has a website full of really great tutorial videos. We watched a bunch of them and quickly picked up on how to make it spin. The tricks we are still working on but it’s a lot of fun to keep practicing and working on it till you master them.
It is a great arm workout too by the way. The kids spent hours playing this the day I introduced them to it. All week they have been outside playing with them and even around the house. My 16-year-old picked it up pretty quickly. She had a lot of fun with it. My 8-year-old is still learning but she loves watching the videos and then trying out the skills. I don’t know if anyone else has a YouTube addicted child but mine watches YouTube all the time so she will watch the tutorials and then practice awhile then watch more tutorials. She has had a lot of fun learning this new skill.
So if you are looking for a unique toy that will get your kids off the electronics check out Kickfire. They have other great toys as well. They feature fun classic toys that are perfect for getting kids active and playing unplugged.
