Okay my son is in kindergarten and last week they had a school assembly featuring "NED" the YO YO guy. We spent 50 bucks on yo yo's and a dvd teaching tricks. The DVD looked like it was made in the 80's. The guy has Sally Jesse Ralphael glasses, the music is totally 80's techo and the graphics are laughable!! But my son loves it and we've had to watch it a million times. He hasn't learned any of the tricks but we love it all the same. By the way NED stands for

N- never give up

E- encourage others

D- do your best

I enjoyed all the 80's references and had a good laugh. Thanks!!
