Back then, almost every child had their own version of the toy yoyo. Whether it had been the kind with spikes or the one that lit up after every drop, the yoyo has been a staple toy among the kids and kids-at-heart of the 90s and early 2000s. And during this era of yoyo spinning, no one was immune to its widespread fad!
Even young celebrities were addicted to the yoyo’s smooth and mesmerizing spinning mechanisms. Multitalented actor Hugh Jackman even admitted that at the age of 10, he once competed and won at the Pymble Public School Yoyo Competition.

Since Jackman posted this video on Facebook last December 29, 2017, some have expressed their fondness of the yoyo toy during their youth and applauded the actor for re-introducing the world to all the toy’s cool wonders.
While the majority of the commenters praised Jackman for his recent performance in the film The Greatest Showman, and credited him as a master thespian and as an all-out heartthrob.
We’re thrilled to see a celebrity as skilled as Hugh Jackman get candid about another one of his hidden talents! And who knows, maybe Jackman isn’t the only person who’s got what it takes to make it as a yoyo champion. 😉
