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 is a very simple printed patch. The half wing design and text was printed on thick white felt. Wing patches are popular with collectors, half wings included. The term "yo-yo" is on the patch, indicating a date around 1960 and most likely from Canada.

A 1960 Cheerio Yo-Yo Junior Instructor single wing award patch from Canada. Red felt print on white felt. The use of "YO-YO" on the patch indicates that it is likely from the early 1960s in Canada.

This patch was the next award up from the Cheerio Yo-Yo Gold Award patch.

Compare also to the Cheerio Junior Instructor, version 1 patch and the Cheerio Junior Instructor, version 2 patch.
