Bandai is one of Japan's most famous toymakers. Bandai has brought together the world's leading yo-yo brands to design special models for their Hyper Yo-Yo series, a Japan-exclusive! Bandai is seeking to rekindle the Hyper Yo-Yo boom of the late 1990's, responsible for over 20 million yo-yos sold worldwide and forever changing the international yo-yo scene. Hyper Yo-Yo was revived in 2004, and again in 2010, for the 3rd generation of future yo-yo masters. Duncan, Yomega and YoYoFactory have all been tapped to contribute their best beginner models to the fray, with Bandai providing their production and marketing power being the 2010 Yo-Yo Boom. We only handle the 2010 version Hyper Yo-Yos, and only 2010+ model Hyper Yo-Yos can be used to attain official Hyper Yo-Yo certification.
