M&M's Yo-Yo

The M&M yo-yo is designed to hold and dispense candy M&Ms. This project went through the design, manufacturing, and mass production stages.


Modeling and measuring

CNC Machining

Manufacturing the yo-yos involved milling aluminum molds for the injection molded and thermoformed parts.

Injection Molding

Short shots and plastic burns: we learned to optimize the molding process in this project.


After assembly, we finished with over 50 working M&M yo-yos.
