We just got info on a new yoyo coming from One Drop that was created as a fundraiser to help out some members of our little community. Check out the full statement below from One Drop. This new yoyo will be shipping to retailers soon!
Toxic Strings and One Drop YoYos have come together and created a new yo-yo called the T1 with the purpose of helping out Trevan Evans with his medical expenses. Trevan, aged 2, is the son of Evan and Angie Evans who own Toxic Strings and he was recently diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (hence the name T1) . This has been a life altering event for the Evans family emotionally, logistically and financially. Proceeds from the sale of every single T1 yo-yo will go towards helping them out with Trevan’s medical expenses.
It is so cool how collaborations create results that wouldn’t happen any other way. The T1 is no exception. It is a large, fun, floaty and wide yo-yo with a unique ridged catch zone. Evan was always a fan of the “Projection Profile” found in some One Drop yoyos like the Project, but wanted to take them in a new direction with larger grooves. This gives the T1 a really unique look and feel. The play is stable and the wide catch zone inspires confidence.
Great yo-yo. Great cause.
