Good one! got me good. I had no idea! Hey Shabz, in the US, the 'walk', 'sleep', 'rock the cradle' and 'around the world' are all yoyo moves/tricks. Man its been years since I've yoyo-ed!

Yay, I got it right!! I used to watch my brother do these tricks when I was growing up, and tried and tried to do them myself, but was never any good at it.

mekaboo27**
Nov 17, 2005

mama likes! I did not get this one. I never really got into the yo-yo thing as a child so I was totally clueless on this one. I did enjoy this one and hope to see more like it. Keep up the good work. And to all those haters, don't be mad because you did not think of it first!! XXXX keep them coming

I just love it. I never could get a yo-yo to go up and down right - much less 'walk' or anything fancy. Thanks

THAT WAS LIKE FREAKIN' HILARIOUS!!! GOOD ONE!!!

Nov 17, 2005

This was a great teaser. I did not get it until I looked at the answer. It really did bring back memories from along ago. Thanks

Nov 17, 2005

I guessed a telephone, because you hang a telephone in a cradle, you let your fingers do the walking so that you can do things on the phone without leaving your chair and you can call anywhere around the world quicker than you can walk across the room.
shawneeo*us*
Nov 17, 2005

Wow, this one was GREAT!!! I didn't get it, not even close, didn't even occur to me AT ALL! That's when it's amazing, and, it all worked! The whole thing made sense when you learned the answer. They used to have a commercial on TV where a guy showed all those tricks, but that was a million years ago, and I haven't seen or thought of a yo-yo forever. Thanks muchly!!!

Nov 17, 2005

WOW!!I loved it .I couldn't get it was great and I would have never thought of it.
shawneeo*us*
Nov 17, 2005

No one has answered dave: is there a yoyo move called "the sleeper"? Or does sleeping refer to the rock the baby? I can't remember.
queenbee53A*
Nov 17, 2005

This one is pretty good but it is a little easy.
queenbee53A*
Nov 17, 2005

I think ''the sleeper" is sort of like walk the dog, you get the yo-yo to stay down but don't put it on the floor to "walk". That is only what I think(nothing official).
moimeme
Nov 17, 2005

Loved this one. I feel like a yoyo that I didn't get it!
precious1026Aus*
Nov 17, 2005

This was a terrific teaser. I had no idea and didn't want to try to figure it out.
I didn't play with YO YOs growing up, but it sounded so familiar. I just couldn't try.
Keep writing good Teasers. I am sure there will be a contest SooN.

bradon182001*us*
Nov 17, 2008

This teaser hasn't lost anything because of age. It is right up there with the best. I didn't get it, never gave yo yo a thought, so you really got me. Great teaser, good job. Thanks for posting,
avonmaAus*
Nov 17, 2008

Same for me. I got it easily; never did well with the yo-yo, though.
auntiesisAus*
Nov 17, 2008

Good teaser. It had me thinking, but to no avail.
Never did master the yo-yo.

Great teaser!!! I didn't get it until I finally hit "answer"!

Thanks for the great teaser!

Nov 17, 2008

yeah... cleverly written, though i found it easy since i am still an avid yo-yoer!!!... and quite good at it i might add!!!

Good one and very well written. Wish I had solved it , but you got me too.
gaylewolfAus*
Nov 17, 2011

That was a good riddle - I liked it! I got the answer from the phrase "around the world". I always envied people who could do tricks with a yo-yo. Hello and have a wonderful day, friends!

The Daily teasers have some ups and downs, this one is is a keeper. Nice job.
