My name is Matthew Tait, I am a designer living in Detroit, MI. Last year I started my own company called TAIT Design Co. and launched Turbo Flyer – a handmade balsa model airplane kit.

I think wooden yo-yos deserve a comeback, so for the last nine months I've been working on my follow up product.

The TAIT Sling-Slang is the first in a series of yo-yo models of that I will be producing. Sling-Slang is a beginner to intermediate yoyo, made out of hand-turned hard maple. It has a removable, grooved steel axle and comes as a simple-to-build kit with two colorful poly strings in a recycled cardboard velcro-lock case. The screen-printing is all done by hand and everything including the packaging is assembled right here in Michigan. It comes in three colors – Classic Black, Azure Blue, and Fandango Pink.

The Sling-Slang YOYO is a handsome distraction for young and old, and I often find myself picking it up between work breaks now to have a minute to think and just throw a yoyo. It's so simple, but there is something timeless and special about it.
