The Museum of Yo-Yo History is a labor of love, and we would not be able to stay up-to-date with exhibits without the support of our sponsors and curators. Big thanks go to One Drop Design and Duncan for supplying us with their latest models, YoYoExpert for their help and support, and to Cody Orr, TotalArtist and YoYoBrothers™ for allowing us to use their collections!

If you're a manufacturer, or just a big collector and you want to help support the Museum drop me at line at chimera@yoyomuseum.com
Bird in Hand National Championship (1994)
Exhibit #2374
ShapeStandard (-)
ConstructionThree piece wood
OwnerRick Brough

This all wood yo-yo was made by Hummingbird and sold at the 1994 National Yo-Yo Championship in Chico, California. One side of the yo-yo was stamped with the "Bird in Hand" store logo (they were one of the sponsors of the contest), while and the other side was stamped with the "1994 National Yo-Yo Championship" crest, surrounded by a wreath of laurel leaves, and "Chico" below the crest.

1994 was the second year that the National Yo-Yo Championship was held. Also, to my knowledge, a "1995 National Yo-Yo Championship" yo-yo was never released by Hummingbird, even though the contest took place. 1995 was the year Hummingbird went out of business, but returned in 1996 reincarnated as BC/What's Next.
