Duncan yo-yos are widely recognized as the finest yo-yos in the entire world. Since 1929, the name "Duncan" has been synonymous with "yo-yo" across the United States. Started in 1929 when entrepreneur Donald F. Duncan Sr. purchased the Flores Yo-Yo Company from Filipino immigrant Pedro Flores, Duncan Yo-Yos are an indelible part of American history. Promoted across the entire United States continuously from the late '20s to the mid '60s, owning a Duncan yo-yo and seeing the official Duncan Yo-Yo Man perform was an inimitable part of childhood. Purchased by current owners Flambeau Inc. in the late 1960s, Duncan continues to set the standard by which all yo-yos are judged.
