Poster from What's Next Mfg. Inc. advertising Tom Kuhn Yo-Yos, circa 1998. What's Next has been the exclusive maker of Tom Kuhn wooden yo-yos since 1996. Poster is 48.3cm tall and 30.5cm wide.

Pictured is Dr. Tom Kuhn, portrayed as a seated bodhisattva with six arms, each hand holding one of his own wooden yo-yo creations. Starting in the upper-left and going clockwise:
No Jive - Red with Black stripe
No Jive - Green with White stripe
Roller Woody - White with Blue stripe
Roller Woodey - Blue with White stripe
No Jive - Diamond Special
No Jive - Black with White stripe.

In Buddhism, a bodhisattva is a person who has chosen a path towards bodhi or an "awakening" and "enlightenment". Dr. Kuhn calls this the "State of Yo". His yo-yos serve as "precision sensor instruments to sooth, ease, and improve motion, and relieve stress".

See the wide variety of Tom Kuhn yo-yos that have been released or prototyped since 1977.
