Dressel Designs

We promise, it isn't just because of the Pokemon inspired yoyo the Kanto that we started carrying throws Dressel Designs, although that may have swayed us a little. Yoyos from Dressel Designs are unique and refreshing, and they still have amazing playability!

See all the yoyos from the boutique yoyo company ilinx.


"ilinx" is the Greek word for whirlpool. Recently adopted by game theorists and sociologists, ilinx describes a form of play that is based in physical self disorientation. When studied and practiced, this form of play can induce a state of mind known as "flow". You may know flow as the feeling you get when you breeze through a test that you studied for all week, when you play a song just right for the first time, or when you score that seemingly impossible goal. Flow occurs when your skill level and the difficulty level of your task are equal; flow is the moment that your abilities break new ground on your limits. Skill-toys are flow generators as there is always something new to practice and master.

Zero Gravity Return Tops

ZGRT approached us in early 2022 with their El MiJo model. It was an incredibly unique design, something we had never carried before from a company we had never worked with...we took a chance anyways and were incredibly pleased. Zero Gravity Return Tops is doing experimental and boutique designs right! Creative and innovative.

So, what’s the point of Motion YoYo? To start a YoYo company that focuses not only on the playability of a YoYo but also the aesthetics. I can say with all certainty that if a YoYo doesn’t jive with you by the way it looks and feels, it probably won’t find its way into your hands as often as it should.

Lathed Back Design

Back in 2019 along side my wife we set out on a journey of creating toys, modifying others and saving broken ones as well as the memories that go with them … all with the goal of seeing people smile and knowing that what we create can help bring happiness into the world. Several months later unfortunately everything was taken away from us in a tragic house fire, luckily we all made it out which is the only thing that really matters. Over the last few years we have strived and spent every minute rebuilding our lives and trying to get back to anything that we can call normal these days. Finally we are here and ready to show our creativity to the world, to bring you products that can help put a smile on your face even when you are at the darkest point of your life … we know there are always silver linings.

B-Grade Yoyos

"Better than the Name Implies" these are "Better" Grade yoyos. Whatever I bring to production will absolutely exceed the quality and play that I have felt in most of my old collection, (with one boutique company excluded from that) and those who are willing to take a chance on this small startup will be pleasantly surprised with how good a REAL B-Grade Yo-Yo can be. To most, B-Grade means "Seconds quality" or "Not up to par," but for us, B-Grade means we are putting out the BEST.
