Bandai Long Sleeper award patch
Exhibit #2364
OwnerRick Brough

A long sleeper award patch from Japan. The patch is approximately the same size as a Boy Scout merit badge.

It is unknown what time qualified as a long sleeper. Bandai, in conjunction with Hyper Yomega of Japan, were sponsors of trick events at authorized Bandai yo-yo shops.

You could earn a total of 28 different trick patches. Each patch had the name of the trick embroidered on it in a stylized fashion. There was a trick patch for successfully completing a wide variety of original yo-yo tricks such as Around the World, Creeper, Loop the Loop, Tokyo Tower (better known as Eiffel Tower), Elevator, Pinwheel, Shoot the Moon, Double or Nothing, and Split the Atom.
