YoYoRecreation (formerly known as 44re:creation), is a yo-yo manufacturer based in Japan, owned by Kengo Kido, the brother of former World 1A Champion Shinya Kido. They began selling yo-yos in 2008. The company specializes in high-end, competition-level metal yo-yos, often designed by team members' specifications. They have also produced injection molded plastics such as the Diffusion and the Gargantua, as well as a composite plastic/metal yo-yo, the Triad.

Rebellion by YoYoRecreation

In 2015, YoYoRecreation launched a new sub-brand, "Rebellion", which aimed to bring high-level performance at a lower price point, by outsourcing production to China.

Rebellion launched three models during the 2015 Japan National Yo-Yo Contest; the Golyat, the Acro, and the Butcher. All models debuted with modest price tags of under 6,500 JPY each. During the 2015 Worlds, Rebellion launched four additional models; the Lilliputian, Qilin, Dread, and Dread G. In February 2016, a new bi-metal yo-yo, the Start the Riot, was released as part of the Rebellion line. Later that year, their second bi-metal, the Invaders Must Die, was also released.

YoYoRecreation AE

In June 2017, YoYoRecreation started their second sub-brand, "YoYoRecreation AE", based on models that are not only reasonably priced and of a cutting-edge design, but can also compete at the highest level.
