Sponsors and Curators
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!

This one is a big unknown, and we are looking for more information. This item came up for sale online and was purchased by a collector. We would definitely like to find an example to document in the museum.

Was this yo-yo made by the Flores Yo-Yo company from the USA, owned by Pedro Flores, or was it "another" Flores company. When was it made? Were these made and sold in Germany only? Other tin whistlers date from the 30s thru the 70s, so it is hard to estimate the date. The pattern is similar to several Duncan Tin Whistlers from the 30s. A beautiful and unique item, but truly a big mystery to us ...
