What is the Philippines?

Huh. I thought that was just an urban legand. :o :stuck_out_tongue: shrug

What is China?

the “yo-yo” name derives from the phillipines however the toy cam from China. Chinese kids played with two wood, metal, or potery disks fashioned together with a small rod and painted, then a piece of string tied to the rod and the other end to a finger.
