About Us: What We Care About
Quality and Design: Tom Kuhn Yo-Yos are renowned for their innovative and aesthetically pleasing designs. Nothing is quite like a Tom Kuhn Yo-Yo. Every Tom Kuhn Yo-Yo is manufactured and hand assembled in the USA, then tested for quality and tuned for performance by a World Yo-Yo Champion. We build our yo-yos to last and provide a lifetime of fun. We proudly and unconditionally guarantee customer satisfaction.
People: Why yo-yo? It is a great cure for boredom, but so are many things.Indeed, the modern world is full of things to occupy our time. Many of these modern diversions have a dissociating effect on the user, leaving them in a state of isolation behind the invisible wall of handheld games and music players. Yo-yos, rather, are intriguing to other people (and pets as well!). Playing with a yo-yo in public not only makes a light-hearted, carefree statement, it invites others into your world as they marvel at your incredible tricks and recall their own personal experience with this universal toy.
The Planet: Tom Kuhn Custom Yo-Yos is proud of its commitment to the environment. Our raw materials are sourced from mills with FSC certified hardwood.. FSC (The Forest Stewardship Council) has the highest environmental standard for forest management of any certification system in the world. FSC supports healthy forests and healthy communities. Our metals are RoHS compliant, with over 85% produced in the USA.
Holding, playing, and admiring a wooden yo-yo can serve as a reminder of our responsibility to the living things of our planet, the source of everything! To be sure, we are not hopeless idealists but we do recognize that little things can have great impact (just like a yo-yo!). Yo-yo play won't change the world, but it is definitely compatible with a more environmentally responsible future. Portable, electricity-free, and long-lasting... yo-yos provide the perfect alternative to video games, which devour energy before being discarded after a few weeks or months. We encourage people to exchange their virtual reality for actual reality...
