This is a popular home-made toy which we've made many times over the years.

For all the creative artists in your family, a balloon yo-yo can be given a face with the use of permanent marker.

A balloon yo-yo is surprisingly durable ... although with enthusiastic use, the balloon will eventually break. Because of this, we've always made the yo-yo balloons outdoor toys. After all, the grass can do with some watering but the lounge room carpet doesn't need water. :o
