Description

Eighty years of Yo-Yo artifacts are on display, with photos, competition awards, and Yo-Yo's from the 1920s through today, as well as the world's largest Yo-Yo at 50 inches in height and weighing 256 pounds. The national Yo-Yo contest is held in Chico in October. The Yo-Yo museum is in a store called "Bird in Hand" which has very cool nature and educational toys, along with garden items, games, and fun T-shirts (classy shirts, not "I'm with stupid."). Downtown Chico is very fun to walk through anytime; an excellent time to visit is Thursday evenings in the summer for Downtown Outdoor Market. The downtown area is free of students in the summertime, which makes for a better family experience in the evenings.
