8th Anniversary Campaign

March 3, 2018 marks Yo-Yo Store REWIND’s online store’s 8th Anniversary and our Shibuya store’s 2nd!

We’re overflowing with gratitude for all of YOU, without whom we would never have made this far. Thank you for everything!

To celebrate, we’re holding a special Anniversary Campaign! As usual there are many ways to enjoy it, so be sure to take advantage and check the details.

[Campaign Period]

From: Thursday, March 1, 1 pm (13:00) Japan Time*

Until: Monday, March 12, 1 pm (13:00) Japan Time
*Orders shipped out on March 1 are counted as within the period.

[Presents for Orders Over a Fixed Amount]

Orders Over $50 – Free Slim Size Pad (Pro) Starter Set!

Our new non-brand response pads are growing ever more popular. Since these pro pads are “slim” sized, they fit most yo-yos in the current market, and with “soft” “standard” and “hard” options they make it easy for you to adjust to your preferred level of response.

We know it’s hard to choose the right response pads for you and your yo-yos without first giving them a try, so we’ve put together a starter set to help you do just that. It contains 4 pads of each type for a total of 12 pads (enough to outfit 6 yo-yos in total). What would normally cost $15.94, you can get for the special set price of $13.99.

But wait! During our anniversary campaign period only, the starter set is on sale for $7.99!

Not only that, but if you place an order during the campaign period over $50, you can get a starter set for FREE!*

Don’t miss out on your chance to try these new, awesome response pads! We love ’em and bet you will too.

*You must add the starter pack to your cart to receive the present. Your order must be more than $50 before adding the present to your cart. The price of the item will be subtracted from your order.

Orders Over $100 – Free REWIND Smartphone Ring (originally $9.99)!

Each year we make some new REWIND branded goodies. This time we decided to make an original smartphone ring attachment. The base is adorned with the REWIND logo over a background of our signature green, while the ring itself is made of sturdy metal.

Attach it to the back of your phone or tablet device to prevent dropping and make it easier to hold. We decided on this item based on it being a fun, subtly yo-yo-related item with potential to improve your daily life.

We made a limited number of smartphone rings and are selling them for $9.90. At this point, unless there is a huge response we don’t plan to make any more. If we do, we’ll definitely change the design, so this is your only chance to get this particular edition, REWIND super fans!

Deal time! If you place an order over $100 during the campaign period, you can get a smartphone ring for free!*

*You must add the smartphone ring to your cart to receive the present. Your order must be more than $100 before adding the present to your cart. The price of the item will be subtracted from your order.

Orders Over $200 – Free REWIND Yo-Yo Case (originally $18.99)!

This time our yo-yo case comes in a brand new color: PINK!

It’s a good fit for two looping yo-yos and one string trick yo-yo; just the right size to take with you every day. It’s also made with sturdy materials so there’s no need to worry about the safety of your favorite throws.

If you place an order over $200 during the campaign period, you can get one of these great cases for free!

*You must add the yo-yo case to your cart to receive the present. Your order must be more than $200 before adding the present to your cart. The price of the item will be subtracted from your order.

[Yo-Yo] YoYoFactory – Flight Review by TokYo-Yo



A superb balance of power and responsiveness, in a tough package! YYF’s Flight raises the bar for extreme cost-performance off string yo-yos.

Breaking years of silence on the off string front, YoYoFactory has released a new model that is worth the wait. A full plastic body (unlike the rubber-winged models in the past), Flight boasts a high attention to detail that is the result of extensive testing and minute tweaks, making it one of the best off string yo-yos for the price.

Aside from maintaining its spin, the balance of its responsiveness is one of the most important features of an off string yo-yo. You don’t want the yo-yo to catch a bind until you’re ready, but you still want a good, tight bind. Flight strikes a great balance here, and the bumped response area has both the effect of preventing sleep loss, and even when the yo-yo slows down, it still manages to maintain a straight, smooth spin. Built for durability, the plastic body also looks pretty darn good, and the low price means that off string newbies to contest players can afford to stock their fleet.

The parts of the body that come into contact with the string have a finish similar to the blast coatings on metal yo-yos, further reducing sleep loss.

[Yo-Yo] YoYoFactory – ROCKstar Review by TokYo-Yo

The ROCKstar, the perfect step-up model, gets a renewal seven years after its initial release.

For many players that have gotten hooked on yo-yos, the ROCKstar was the first full metal model they lusted after. Designed to be an instant classic, unfazed by the trends but still be made to the satisfaction of the most demanding players, the ROCKstar was designed as a promotional model, between Yo-Yo Company and YoYoFactory.

Its simple step-straight body shape has survived the years, and even this refresh hasn’t changed it much. Compared to the straight, sharp edges of the inner body, the side face features a beatiful sloping curve that rolls out from the flat center face all the way to the rims. Thanks to this exquisite weight distribution, ROCKstar boast a power and feeling that is only bested by how easy it is to control. The light body won’t wear your arm out, even after extended practice sessions, while you come up with new tricks to impress your friends and fans.

In addition to single-handed string tricks, of course the ROCKstar can easily throw down some counterweight (5A) and 2-handed string trick (3A). For the price, you can’t beat it as a step up model, and you can affordably fill your contest tray with these puppies!

Also, if you aren’t quite ready for the bind response tricks, you can step the bearing down to a size C- bearing (sold separately), letting you turn your ROCKstar into a tug-response model. If the response gets too weak for you, you can use a drop of looping oil, and don’t forget to freshen up your response pads every now and then with YYF Pro Pads (Green).

Music by Rolemusic, “Crush at Maraca’s Bar”

New yo-yo brand from the United States, SFyoyos, will be available at REWIND and YOYOUSA! Bi-metal model SF SS coming soon in a REWIND exclusive color!

SFyoyos, a brand from the United States, started surfacing in conversation among core yo-yo fans on social media in late 2016. Their first yo-yo, the SF, which has a very smooth and round design, was well loved, so much so that it became a popular throw instantly. Their team has many well known players like Paul Harness, aka @yoyoist who uploads super high level tricks on Instagram, SEC 1A Champ, Alec Jones, and 2017 US Nationals 5A 3rd place, Jared Marcus. SF is one of the up and coming brands of today, and one you definitely won’t want to miss!

REWIND is the first retailer to carry SFyoyos, and the first model available will be a bi-metal model, the SF SS! On top of that, they will be a REWIND exclusive colorway!

The SF SS is based on their first model, the SF, and has embedded stainless rims inside. Its feeling is incredibly unique. It’s like playing with a mono-metal, with no strong pull or heaviness of a bi-metal, but the length of spin is truly something to behold. It spins way longer than it feels from the initial throw!

We have a very limited number of this special exclusive color. Try one while you can! They will not last long.
