New York – Allegra Toys today “threw down” the next generation YoYo at the New York Toy Fair 2015 in the Javits Centre.

“The Yorp is a very exciting new toy,” said Monika Rogers, President of Allegra Toys. “The YoYo turns inside a ball and opens up possibilities for dozens of new tricks. In addition, Yorp makes traditional moves easier to learn.”

 The Yorp is being demonstrated for media at the Allegra Toys booth (#6456) throughout the fair.

“We’ve already generated sales based on the tremendous potential for children new to YoYos, as well as adults that are rediscovering one of the most successful toys of all time,” said Rogers.

 YoYos have been in existence almost as long as any toy, with terra cotta examples from 500 BC discovered in Greece. The modern version took off in 1929 when entrepreneur Donald Duncan took over a successful Californian toy company, and started YoYo competitions to encourage the craze. In the 1940s his factories were making 3,600 YoYos an hour and by 1962 the Duncan Company alone sold a record 45 million YoYos in the US – a country at the time with just 40 million children.

If you are interested in Yorp you should visit the Allegra Toys booth (#6456), where it can be played. Also, visit www.squap.com. To set up exclusive interviews, please contact monika@squap.com or call +1 778 237-0965.
