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!
If you're a manufacturer, or just a big collector and you want to help support the Museum drop me at line at email@example.com

|A maple fixed axle yo-yo, handmade by TMBR of Oregon as a cross colaboration with Ed Haponick, a fixed axle yo-yo player. The yo-yo came with a letter from Ed Haponick.
From the yoyoexpert.com website:
"The origins of the TMBR eH yoyo can be traced back to 2012 when Ed Haponik took a one year oath to throw only a single fixed-axle wooden yo-yo. It was a custom design from SPYY who sponsored him at the time. He completed this goal on December 31, 2012 and documented his efforts on 365yoyotricks.com and in several of his clip videos.
Fast forward to 2020 we miss our friends SPYY, but Ed continues to throw down some of the best fixed axle tricks around via his Instagram page and inspiring a resurgence in fixed axle play! Every year we have since worked with our good friend Colin at TMBR and Ed to release a new version of the eH and the PockeHt brings us in a fun new direction!"
From Ed Haponik:
"Awhile back, when I bonked my 20-eH-teen against the tile, cracking it badly, I 'fixed' it by whittling it down into a super-slim pocket version. Around the same time, Colin at TMBR was cooking up his This-a-Way/That-a-Way [yo-yo] design. With that creative fuel, we set about imagining an ultra-slim version of the eH yo-yo weâ€™ve tweaked since 2012. This involved playing with every dimension and variable, and what Colin came up with is a remarkable little yo-yo which packs as much punch (and sweetness) as any eH weâ€™ve done into a much smaller package.
The PockeHt spins great, flips easy, shoots the moon all day, and (if you ever want to take it off your finger) slips into your jeans pocket no sweat. The engraving Andre cooked up features either a classic minimalist 'eH' option OR an homage to the TK Pocket Rocket & No Jive models, which the three of us have long admired.
I hope the PockeHt finds a home in your pocket and that you enjoy it as much as we do!"
