As seen on Ed Haponiks blog, the long desired SPYY Eh has become a production reality thanks to the skilled hands of TMBR Toys. That logo in the center tells me that YoYoExpert will be getting the first run.
So you know that yo-yo that Spyy made for Ed Haponik? The Eh?
Well we all know about TMBR toys and the incredible work Colin is doing. Looks like there may be something in the works with TMBR and SPYY.
From TMBR’s Facebook:
Combined it with this one
and I think we are seeing the Spyy Eh, made by TMBR, hopefully ready for release in the near future! No word if they come with a Levi tuxedo and a gallon of maple syrup.
From TMBR Toys:
A bold statment. With a smaller diameter than previous offerings, a rounded profile, and small interior step, BALDWIN is perfect for stalls and regenerations. The most dramatic addition is the inlaid Dado Caps, which give a visual indication of spin speed for stalls.
Maple body, Walnut Dado Cap
1 3/8 inch width
2 1/8 inch diameter
Peace, love, and wood.
*Specs may vary. Seriously, wood is a natural material.
From the creative mind and hands of TMBR Toys Colin Leland, this is the trophy for the Worlds Fixed Axle Championship
New from TMBR Toys:
LOVEJOY. A wider bodied yoyo with a tapered gap, rounded rims, and chamfered edges. Love, and enjoy.

In case you are not sure what it is you are looking at, that is a board that has pieces of the yo-yo laser cut. I imagine you snap the parts out and put it together like this.
Oh, it is square also.
I need one for every desk in my house.
Colin said it will be available soon.
TMBR have unveiled their newest yo-yo, the Fremont.
After many long hours, and a huge pile of wrecked hardware and scrapped wood, the FREMONT is finished. It’s a more classic shape. Same dimpled response as IRVING, but it comes apart. I know it’s not really that exciting of a change, but it took a lot of effort to make this one happen. TMBR goodness.
I met with Colin from TMBR Toys on Saturday, and he showed me some new variations of the Irving and Irving Pro that he’s been working on.
I have one. It is incredible what you can do with this wood yo-yo.
Available right now at PlayTmbr.com
Colin Leland recently had an Art Show where he gave artists from varying backgrounds a TMBR Irving and told them to go wild. Here are some of the results!
All of these are for sale at the PlayTmbr website.
This is pretty cool. Colin over at TMBR toys got his yoyos into the hands of a bunch of artists, musicians, and designers and is having them do whatever there creative minds can come up with.

These beautiful all wood yo-yos were made by Colin Leland’s new start up, TMBR toys. He hand turned these beauties and tested every single one. This is the first wood yo-yo I have ever used that I reliably and consistently can do tricks like Spirit Bomb, Suicide, Plastic Whip and Boingy Boing on. The lighter colored yo-yo is made of Mable with a Walnut axle, and the darker colored one is Walnut with a Walnut axle. The little hole near the axle is to assist you to dig out string knots. Colin plans to sell them on his website at PlayTMBR.com. The site is still in progress, so in the mean time you an friend TMBR Toys on Facebook to stay up to date on TMBR Toys developments.
Without a doubt, one of the best wood yoyos I have ever tried.
