At the core of the Tom Kuhn brand mission is our passion for craftsmanship and artistry that reflect our profound respect for the past with keen fascination for the future. Our quest for the perfect yo-yo continues, infusing our values of service, integrity, innovation, aesthetics, tradition and fun into every product; from the basic entry level model to the most technologically advanced and all accessories and TK branded products.


In 1976, the quest for the perfect yo-yo began!
In 2018, The quest for the perfect yo-yo continues!
Tom Kuhn Yo-Yos are renowned for their innovative and aesthetically pleasing designs. They are manufactured and assembled in the USA, then tested for quality and tuned for performance.
We build our yo-yos to last and provide a lifetime of fun. We proudly and unconditionally guarantee customer satisfaction.


Yo-Yo tricks are adventures in geometry, timing, concentration and self-expression.
Tom Kuhn’s adjustable gap, ball bearing yo-yos will take you into the uncharted realm of advanced yo-yo choreography! The astonishingly long spin potential allows you the time to learn previously impossible moves and then invites you to embellish them!
Therapy; Tom Kuhn Yo-Yos, for some, are precision sensory instruments to sooth, ease and/or to improve motion and relieve stress.


On July 31, 1992, a Tom Kuhn SB2 yo-yo was sent aloft by NASA for a real around-the-world ride on the Atlantis Space Shuttle. It was employed as a prop for an educational video. Astronaut Jeffrey Hoffman put it through zero G manoeuvres including slow motion yo-yoing.
The yo-yo traveled 3,321,007 miles and went around the world 127 times (!) before returning to earth on August 9.
