It would have been best to buy the book of yoyo tricks. It's informative, and lots of fun. But my kids were frustrated by the yoyos, which had flimsy, sticky string and did not work well. I had to buy them better yoyos on the side. In order to make it a kit, a box with plastic inserts houses the book and yoyos. It's a lot of packaging, and was discarded/recycled as soon as the kids opened the box.

Get started with this classic up-and-down yo-yo trick.

Step 5: Finally, pull the yo-yo string up through the loop you just released while catching the hanging string between the yo-yo and ring finger. Display the Eiffel Tower.

Many yo-yo tricks begin with this simple thrown-down maneuver, or a variation of it. If you do not get it right the first few times, don't panic. All it takes is a bit of practice.
