Aoda Toys

Aoda Toys is a Chinese toy manufacturer which produces radio control, toy, and diecast vehicles, spinning tops (reminiscent to that of the Beyblade toy line), infant toys, and yo-yos. They are most known for their low quality, their uncanny similarities to products from major yo-yo manufacturers, and their reproduction of patented yo-yo designs.

Criticism

Although Aoda does not produce and market outright counterfeits ("bootleg"), the overall look & shape of many yo-yos produced by Aoda Toys closely resembles that of yo-yos produced by other manufacturers.

Patents

Aoda often produces yo-yos using technology protected by US patent law. Although the use of these part designs are protected in the US, there are no restrictions in countries outside the US.
