Feel Like A Little Fling?

Or maybe a little fling zing, oft described as a Chinese yo-yo, although that’s not a name we’d use, being sensitive and enlightened, which you can tell by reading our catalog. A fling zing is a roll of colorful waxed paper on a stick. Snap your wrist and watch it shoot out more than a yard for oddly compelling fun. (These have much better flinging action than the fling zings we remember from our youth.)
