OwnerRick Brough

The Slick is a wooden yo-yo made in China and distributed by Papa's Toys Co. Ltd. based out of Canada. Papa's Toys is the current holder of the registered trademark "Yo-Yo" in Canada. The company, however, has no product development and, therefore, never releases any new yo-yo designs. They also do not promote yo-yoing in Canada through the sponsorship of players, teams, contests, or training.

For many decades, nearly all wooden yo-yos sold in Canada were made by Elfverson of Sweden. Today, that is unfortunately longer the case. These new Chinese-made versions are of poor quality in comparison. The string gap on this model measures five millimeters which makes the yo-yo completely unusable for any tricks. The Slick is among the worst mass produced wooden yo-yos in the toy marketplace today (2023).

In the end, the only thing "slick" about this yo-yo is its packaging.

Original retail price: $10 US.
