From the www.mryoyothrower.com website:
"In February [2019] we released a micro yoyo called the Loonie [version 1, Canadian edition]. I thought this would be a fun little release that would catch little attention. Instead it sold out right away. I would have left it at that, but Andre at Yoyoexpert asked if he could carry them, so a 2nd run was in order. I took the opportunity to upgrade the design. Since it's named after the Canadian Dollar and it costs $1.30 Canadian to purchase an American dollar, I thought we'd do an American version that was 30% wider!

The Loonie is a tiny throw that packs a big punch! [Sorry, but it's a very tired, overused platitude spoken about any small diameter yo-yo these days.] Small enough to fit in the pocket, stable enough to work on precision training your combos.

The Loonie was inspired by a YoYo from 10 years ago called the AODA Littles. It was a pocket throw that played big. [SIGH] We took that idea and refined it with a unique design modern play requires. We've tested through 3 variations to get to this version [Loonie, version 2, American edition] and we think it's fantastic!

The Loonie plays best with a thinner string, but works fine with your favourite brand of bulk string.

We like to have fun at Rain City Skills, so the hub of the Yoyo is designed to be Lego compatible. This allows you to throw on some small decorative pieces or bigger pieces to adjust the weight. Each Loonie comes with a pair of lego plates that are great for fingerspins!

Each Loonie comes packed in a small zip up coin pouch including:

• 1 Loonie YoYo
• 1 foil-wrapped chocolate Canadian Dollar coin
• An assortment of Rain City Skills stickers
• A random selection of Mryoyothrower trading cards
• a few Rain City Skills thin strings."

Used a size A center flat track ball bearing axle. Released June 20, 2019 at 18:00 PST.

Original retail price: $50 US
