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!

Cheerio School Instructor single wing
Exhibit #4010
Size76 mm tall
Width130 mm
OwnerRick Brough

An unusual single wing Cheerio School Instructor patch, likely from the late 1940s to late 1950s, in the USA. It's not clear how you became a Cheerio yo-yo school instructor or what qualified you to be a school instructor. Most instructor patches required that you successfully complete 24 or more tricks.

Material-wise, this patch was manufactured in a similar fashion to most Duncan patches from the same time period. That is, a heavy gauge cotton backing cloth with red and blue embroidery stitching.

As a general rule, Cheerio patches that have Yo-Yo on them were made for the Canadian market; Cheerio patches that do not have Yo-Yo on them were made for the USA market. If you are a collector, you know the reason why.

Of interest...
Besides the School Instructor patch, Cheerio also the following instructor patches:
Instructor, maple leaf
Instructor, flying eagle
Junior Instructor, version 1
Junior Instructor, version 2
Junior Instructor, single wing
