coin manipulation...
To hear nothing but bearings
To feel nothing but string
To feel so much like hell,
spinning so close to heaven.
This is the Yoyoer's' High.
This is the feeling I live for.

Why limit yourself?

Rola Bola

Fun on it's own and even better when combined with other skilltoys as well.

"Gitter Rings"
Are they spelled like that, or with a "J"?

nice list dude. just a random question. when im bored i stack up pencils into buildings and after a while i can actually do it a lot faster. would that be considered a skill toy lol? and does anyone try yoyoing and footbaging at the same time. Because I did and it looked pretty darn cool. I did like a toe kick over the yoyo which was in a plastic whip at the same time. and it came out pretty cool.... maybe im just crazy.  :idiot2: O0 ;D

well in danish we call the card thing - building "card houses"
I dunno if this is the right word for it tho.. But I'll add that to the list along with Soduko (I am not quite sure about this as its more like an IQ thing - I might be wrong).

wich reminds me of Rubik's Cube and Rubik's Magic - wich I'll add as well

Fingeratv is the same thing as atving for real life.  I just saw it on ebay and thought it was a skill toy.  Oh yeah also finger pogosticking is also a skill toy i guess.

after intensively watching a lot of jack@#$ episodes, I have finally tried these sports or skill toys that the creators of the show were actually creative enough to think of them. So I've listed the thigns they've done that I have tried and that actually work and take much skill.
Pogo sticking on a moving skateboard(so fun yet so hurtful)
Boogie skateboarding(put ur trucks into a boogieboard with the wheels on. Most fun out of all I would have to say. MUch easier to control than a skateboard but hurts a little more when bailing.)
Human tricycle(put two roller skates on ur knees and then 1 wheel thing and hold that wheel with ur two front hands. THis is the most easiest to control.)

I made this one up:
Yoyoing while skateboarding always gets the crowds attention. I took my shinji saito raiders out, and did some 2a while ollieying off a couple of 5 steps. DOign some kick flips. I even did like 3 loops underneath my skateboard while in mid air... but i didnt land it and I almost broke my hip i think.... too bad...skateboarding was my dream anyways.

So people try these things out except for the pogoing thing.... I suggest you dont... cause you will fall... evne if ur like a master pogoer. Just dont do it, and I am not responsible if you dont listen to me and try that and get hurt nor am I if you try any other of these skill toys, so... Peace.
