For the past few years we have released a special box on the occasion of REWIND’s anniversary. Each year has been different, but we have collaborated with many different brands to bring you new and limited models at bargain prices.
We originally planned to release this year’s box in March to celebrate our anniversary, but as you know, the world had other plans. Due to the spread of the coronavirus, things were delayed far more than we expected.
Better late than never, though! This year’s anniversary box is a collaboration with Canadian return top brand CLYW.
We could make this special box possible thanks to our relationship with CLYW as their official distributor for Asia.
This time, the main item in the anniversary box is the brand-new, NOT-YET-RELEASED first bi-metal signature yo-yo of 2015 1A World Champion, Zach Gormley, “Wish!”
Recently he hasn’t competed in any big contests, but when he posts a yo-yo video the internet goes wild with speculation, wondering “Is Zach back on the contest scene?!” and “Can we finally see his freestyle again?!” Many yo-yo fans are looking forward seeing him on-stage again. This release of a brand new bi-metal might very well be a sign of his return.
In the past, there have been a few signature models for Zach Gormley: the Arctic Circle 1 & 2, Borealis, and Big Dipper. Wish marks his very first bi-metal signature model.
We are excited and humbled to be able to release Wish in our 10th Anniversary Box as its world debut!
The Wish in this anniversary box is a special logo edition for REWIND’s 10th Anniversary.
Would it really be a “box” with just one yo-yo? Of course there’s more inside! Let’s check the contents of this anniversary box!
*Color will be chosen randomly.
The CLYW plastic model Big Dipper is one of the best performing yo-yos among current plastic models. The one in the anniversary box is Fool’s Gold (the name for outlet models at CLYW), but it is only because of a slight vibe or small color imperfection. There are no large play issues. Big Dipper is also Zach Gormley’s signature model!
CLYW created the high performance “Pixel Bearing” with iYoYo. We included 2 of them and 2 pairs of replacement Snow Tire Pads. Of course, you can use Pixel Bearings with any other C size bearing yo-yos!
Finally, the box comes with one special pouch or tote bag made specially for REWIND’s 10th Anniversary.
The Anniversary Box price will be $134.99, which is the same as the suggested retail price for Wish, but comes with a bunch of extra goodies. What a deal!
We will release the box at around 8:30 pm on August 5 (Japan Time).
The promotional video for Wish by Zach Gormley will be released soon. Please follow CLYW’s social media if you have not yet. You don’t want to miss this one!
Also, please follow our new YouTube account for our English speaking customers!

In honor of National Yo-Yo Day, we’re having a Review Campaign, and you can get a coupon for our store just for participating!
What is National Yo-Yo Day?
June 6th is the birthday of Duncan Toy Company founder Donald F. Duncan, who is considered to be one of the main forces in popularizing yo-yos in the 20th century. Thus, June 6th is designated as National Yo-Yo Day in the United States, and has come to be celebrated worldwide.
(By the way, in Japan, National Yo-Yo Day is celebrated on April 4th because the word for four “yon” can also be read as “yo.” 4/4 = Yo-Yo!)
To celebrate National Yo-Yo Day, we are doing a Review Campaign!
At REWIND we have a function where you can submit your own review of a product.
We want to see what you think about your favorite yo-yos!
*In order to submit a review, you will need to have (or make) a user account on the REWIND web store.
All full yo-yos on the REWIND web store.
*Yo-Yos that are marked as “Sold Out” are ok.
*Yo-Yos only found in the museum section are not applicable.
From Tuesday, June 5, 2020, 1pm (13:00) JST
Until Sunday, June 21, 2020, 24:00 JST
Reviews submitted after the end of our last review campaign can also be subject to the campaign. However, yo-yos that have since been removed from the linked page (yo-yo list) will not be counted.
If you submit a review during the application period, you will receive a 10% OFF coupon that can be used at both REWIND Worldwide and REWIND USA.
*After we check your review submission, we will send the coupon to the email address registered in your REWIND web store account. Since we are checking submissions manually, your coupon will arrive a few days after you send your review.
*The coupon can not be used with set, new, and special items.
*The coupon expires on Tuesday, June 30, 2020, at 24:00 JST.
Reviews can be submitted by anyone who has registered an account at the REWIND web store.
That means we need to check each submission before it is published on our web site (and subject to the campaign).
Please note that it may take a few days for you to receive your coupon after submitting your review.
– Reviews that are too short (ex. A single word or short phrase like “amazing” “cool” or “easy to use”)
– Reviews that are unrelated to the yo-yo itself (ex. Reviews about the shop, shipping, service, etc.)
– Reviews that are submitted without a REWIND web store account (Since we don’t know how to contact you, we can’t send you a coupon.)
– Reviews that contain inappropriate content, etc.
If your review has been published but you haven’t received your coupon, please first check that there is not a problem with the email address registered to your REWIND web store account, before contacting us.
– Check that your email address was not mistyped.
– Check to make sure emails from REWIND are not being filtered out of your inbox.
(It is possible that your email provider may have flagged emails from REWIND as spam/junk mail and that they are being sent to your spam/junk folder or deleted.)
*If your review has also not been published, it is still being reviewed. It will take a few days for submissions to be checked, so we ask for your patience.

Hi everyone, this is Jun Aramaki.
On June 3, 2020, I will be turning 36 years old.
This year I aim to do my best in my work, yo-yo, and private life. (This year my yo-yo goal is to learn how to do Wookiee Fountain!)
Similar to Shinya Kido’s from a little while ago, we’re also going to have a campaign for my birthday!
Since my birthday is June 3, I will be choosing 6 yo-yos and 3 non-yo-yo items, for a total of 9 products, to go on a special limited sale to celebrate!
During the campaign period, if you buy my signature model, the Turning Point Ensemble, we will also include a free gift of 2 pieces of my favorite string for 3A (Kitty String XXL) that have been specially customized to my favorite length setting. (Except for REWIND USA)
From Friday, May 29, at 1pm JST (13:00)
Until Monday, June 8, at 1pm JST (13:00)
