I need some help

I need a yo-yo, but I really can't buy one. Does anyone know how to build one?

It wouldn't be a good idea to make one... unless you use metal, a mold... and bearings, it would be hard... many pros tried, and got unbalanced sleepers, due to the way it's made, by cutting instead of melting

Try to get a panda or something... if you make one it will probably be very unstable. Lots of people tried...

What? A panda?

A flying panda for offstring, it's a kind of yoyo, a throw monkey for free hand.

There are three different type of yoyo's , imperial, used for 2a, butterfly, used for everything but 2a, and modern, which is used for 2a. Get a butterfly yoyo, They are used for everything but 2a, because they can easily land on the string for tricks. Now about the types of playing. 1a-String tricks with a single yoyo. 2a-Looping tricks(moving the yoyo around at the end of string, precise swinging.) 3a-Two handed string tricks(like 1a) 4a-Playing where the string is attached to the hand, but not to the yoyo(freehand) 5a-playing where the yoyo is attached to the string, but the string is tied to something, and the person holds this, so they can let go of the string for tricks.

I guess you would get two round disks about 2 1/2 to 3 inches in diameter made of some dense material like hardwood or plastic. A metal or wood round dowel to place through the exact center to hold the two disks about 1/4 inch apart. Tie a length of string to the center dowel. Make a knot at the other end to place on your finger. Wind up the string and see if it works. You can always search for homemade yo-yos.

You could carve one out of wood.
