Light-up Souvenir Yo-yo

After leaving this blog untouched for two years, I have decided to revive it, in order to share some of my stranger finds. I am bouncing back with a yo-yo (see what I did there?).

It's not just a yo-yo,  but a light-up yo-yo, which flashes when you use it. A 'Jo Jo Luminoso', as the box says. So far, so good. But then, bafflingly, you discover that it is a souvenir from Venice. It even has a moulded gondola on the side of it, and photographs of Venice on the side of the box.

So every time you swing your flashing yo-yo, you will be transported back to those beautiful Venetian canals and churches....
