The Yo-Yo Desk MINI is a very stable and high-quality, height-adjustable standing desk that can be easily integrated into everyday office life. Height adjustment is possible without great effort thanks to the built-in gas springs. Only the keyboard shelf could be somewhat larger.


  • 15-step height adjustment
  • Very stable
  • Simple and fast assembly
  • Space for monitor


  • Small keyboard shelf
A high-quality standing desk that fully fulfils its purpose.

Processing and Design

The Yo-Yo Desk MINI consists of a worktop and a keyboard shelf, which can be attached optionally. All in all, the product is well-processed and looks very stable. The worktop and keyboard shelf are made of coated wood. The mechanism for height adjustment is made of metal. Only the covering of the feet are made of plastic and look cheap.

Thanks to the gas springs the Yo-Yo Desk MINI can be adjusted effortlessly.

To adjust the height, two levers are mounted on the right and left. These must be actuated simultaneously to adjust the standing desk. Due to the two gas springs, the work surface can be raised effortlessly.

According to the manufacturer, this standing desk is designed for users up to 1.83 m tall.

An information sheet for correct standing work is also included in the scope of delivery.

The Yo-Yo Desk Mini is available in black and white.


Although the instructions for the Yo-Yo Desk MINI are only written in English, thanks to the pictures and the few parts, the standing desk can be set up in just a few minutes, even without the explanatory texts. Due to the high weight of the Yo-Yo Desk Mini, it is much easier to assemble it with two people. You should also set up the product directly at your desk, as its size makes it difficult to move.

The assembly is very simple. All you have to do is fasten the holders for the keyboard shelf with a total of eight screws. This is then attached to the underside of the worktop and the table piece is ready for use. The required tools are included in the scope of delivery.

Suitability for everyday use

The Yo-Yo Desk MINI can be very well integrated into everyday working life. Within a few seconds, the standing desk can be adjusted to the desired height in 15 steps. Due to the minimum height of 15 cm, the product is not suitable for laptops, at least for seated work.

The keyboard tray is a bit too small for the simultaneous use of mouse and keyboard.

Negatively, it is noticeable that the keyboard shelf becomes a little narrow when using the mouse and keyboard. This area should be a bit larger. Our laser mouse also worked without a mouse pad on the desktop.

Depending on the monitor, it can happen that it wobbles slightly during more powerful keystrokes. However, we did not find this annoying in our test and it depends very much on the screen used.


The Yo-Yo Desk MINI can be easily integrated into everyday office life.

Thanks to the 15 steps and a maximum height of the upper work surface of 50 cm, you can easily find a good working position. Only the small keyboard rest can be a bit uncomfortable, depending on the keyboard and how you work. All in all, the Yo-Yo Desk MINI could easily be integrated into everyday office life in our test.

We have evaluated a good 20 reviews on the Internet. In summary, it can be said that all buyers are satisfied (4 stars) or even very satisfied (5 stars). The average score at the time of the evaluation was 4.9 out of 5 stars.
