it's a really slow video but it's a cool idea...
forgive me if you've already seen it and have already started making tops and yoyos out of jawbreakers.

Nice, thanks Daveid.

Some of these jaw breakers are 2 1/4 inch diameter--about the size of pool balls.  Amazon link = link


and some are bigger at 3 3/8" diameter link
