Duncan Toys Teams with Disney for International Yo-Yo Competition

Duncan85yrslogoDuncan Toys Company, which celebrates its 85th anniversary this year, recently established a strategic alliance with Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. Duncan retail outlets at Downtown Disney on the east and west coast feature experienced demonstrators interacting with Disney guests while performing their expert skill toy play.

Duncan and Disney are also co-hosting the inaugural International Yo-Yo Championship competition, at Downtown Disney’s House of Blues in Orlando, Fla., on August 1 to 2. The annual event brings competitors and spectators from around the world to witness top yo-yo players from around the world. In conjunction with the International Yo-Yo Championship Competition, Duncan is also developing plans for a regional championship event to be held in the Downtown Disney located in Anaheim, Calif., this October.

Connecting both competitions, Duncan will team up with Radio Disney and select retail partners to conduct a Duncan 85th Anniversary Celebration Tour that will span ten U.S. cities and include community events.
