How to Make an Alaska Yo-yo

I went to school at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. I came across a really cool toy called an Alaska (or Eskimo) Yo-yo. I bought a traditional one made out of seal pelt. It is many years old now, so I decided to figure out a way to replace it. There aren't any seals in Minnesota, so I figured out how to make one using plastic bags, popcorn, rope, duct tap, and leather. If you've found a better construction method, please let me know.

In the next few videos I will show you how to use it
