  Most yo-yos spinning at the same time -world record set by Ben McPhee

 LONDON, UK -- Ben McPhee, an Australian, managed to keep 16 yo-yos spinning at the same time by hanging them off hooks, his fingers, and even ears and teeth - setting the new world record for the Most yo-yos spinning at the same time.

  
 The spectacle occurred at London's Annual Toy Fair, where experts were predicting the yo-yo was undergoing a revival.   (enlarge photo)

   "It looks like it's going to be the year of the yo-yo in the UK so it seemed like a good idea to start with a real yo-yo challenge," McPhee told London's Daily Express.

    
David Strang, the managing director of Wicked Vision, the distributor of Duncan yo-yos, said: "Since November they have been selling ridiculously well. We are up about 1000 per cent at least ten fold on the sales we were having a year ago.

   "Yo-yos, generally over the last 80 years, have gone in seven to eight year cycles. It's a generational thing. A ten-year old has never really seen one, but his older cousins, father and grandfather have. But this time around we haven't seen a proper global craze since 1998. I think video games and the internet left yo-yos behind."

    Benjamin McPhee is the Product and Brand Manager for YoYoFactory.
   
 
   The previous Guinness world record for the Most yo-yos spinning at the same time was was nine simultaneous spinning yo-yos.
