The Story of the Showpony:
A couple of years ago when Rain City Skills was breaking into the market, a Facebook friend reached out with his dream yoyo design and just wanted to get a handful made so he could have one. He invited some friends to split the cost and each get a yoyo. He called it “The Showgirl.”

I sent him the money and then forgot about it until it arrived in the Mail. It was amazing. A Classic O-shaped yoyo with a great weight distribution. The timing was perfect. I had decided that my next release was going to be something very similar so rather than start from scratch, I asked if he'd be willing to collaborate. I loved the concept as Mrs. Yoyothrower is a dancer, so it was a nice tribute to all the help she gives me. We made a few small changes (adding the Rain City signature Lego Hub) to the design and ordered a run. We made a total of 150 of the showgirl design before I moved on.

Two years later it was time to revisit the design. We made it a little wider and slightly larger in diameter and shaved off about 3 grams of weight from the overall design. The end result maintains the general feel of the original Showgirl, but is lighter, faster, and more stable on the string.

I decided with the updated design an updated name was appropriate. Show pony is a name for somebody who is a born performer. Somebody who loves being on the stage and in the spotlight. I planned the colorways around different performing arts. The solid colours are the colours of a circus tent, and each of the splash colours matches a different performing art - Musical Theatre, Flow arts, Magician, Dancer.
