Hi guys! I'm a yoyo player from Idaho, my name is Elijah, and I'm 14. I'm currently developing a new company that I'm calling "YOYOZOO". My first product is something totally new to the yoyo world, and I'm wondering if anyone would be interested! Its going to be a pair of shorts, that will have unique graphics and colors on it, but that isn't what makes it special. I know that when I carry my yoyos around, it hurts my knees and sometimes even bruises them from having them in my cargo pockets. Not fun! And when I wear a holster to show off my brand new throw, it hits every metal thing in sight and makes a ton of noise until I just take it off. So my new shorts will have padded pockets, and also have a clear plastic on the window on the pockets, so you can show off your yoyos without it being obnoxious, and so you can carry them and run with them without being in pain and getting bruised knees! I would absolutely LOVE a response. I'm an aspiring yoyoer and trying to be an entrepreneur and have put in a lot of time and would love some feedback from the people who I'm trying to do this for. Thanks so much you guys and happy throwing!

I would personally not be interested in such a product. I have no problems putting yoyos in my normal side pockets. Good luck in your future endeavors!

To be honest, your idea seems a little ridiculous. I'm not saying it's won't sell or succeed, but seriously, yoyo shorts? Most people don't have the problem you are having, and not that many people wear cargo shorts anyways. Not trying to be downer, but it sounds like you need to think out your ideas a little more.
Cheers!

How about a cool yoyo vest instead! It would be like John Popper's harmonica vest... But you are only 14 so I'm not sure you would know who John Popper is..... Either way man good luck with the endeavor; I wish I had your drive when I was that age. I just wanted to play video games all day.

It can't hurt to try, even if it doesn't work out it'll be a good lesson.  Wink

unless I go out and have to dress for dinner etc I only wear hiking shorts so your idea is a good start.
the only issue is the plastic pocket front as it will not wash well and end up falling apart.

keep at it and pay no attention to those who do not like your idea. come to the West Coast and all you see is shorts all year...

Its a pretty cool idea. I dont have a use for it becuase I just use a holster and tuck it in my front pocket. And I live in minnesota so its kinda too cold for shorts 3/4 of the year.

Instead of making the pockets out of plastic for the reasons mentioned above you could try using some sort of mesh that you could still see through but would also look nice.

Good luck

I'd definitely be interested in these. It sounds like a great idea.

I said it before and I'll say it again, Yoyo fanny packs. Thats something I can see people getting into. Make it hold like 4-6 yoyos. You may use this ingenious idea.

Everyone in WA wears either hiking pants or jeans. I hardly ever see shorts except on the beach, or in the middle of summer.
