The Spin-A-Bell is something completely different in the history of the yo-yo, and very different for Goody Manufacturing as well. And perhaps the rarest of all the Goody models. Concave shaped with a wooden axle, rivoted together through the wooden axle. The halves are similar to, if not the same as, the outer shells of a bicycle bell. Through the rivot, inside the wooden axle, runs a thick metal rod, bent into each yo-yo half. Throw the yo-yo, and the rod chimes inside the bells, and when you catch the yo-yo. With wide gap and sleeper string, decent sleep times were possible with this yo-yo, and some basic string tricks.

The Goody logo stamps are difficult to find in good condition, because they did not work well on the polished metal, and rust is very common on these.
