Big thanks go to One Drop Design and Duncan for supplying us with their latest models, YoYoExpert for their help and support, and to Cody Orr, TotalArtist and YoYoBrothers™ for allowing us to use their collections!

Spintastics Tornado, version 1
Exhibit #2404
PackagingBubble Carded
ConstructionMulti-piece plastic
ConditionMint in Package
OwnerRick Brough

Sometime in 1998 or 1999 Spintastics removed "Terminator" from the pogs that adorned the sides of their yo-yos. The company lost the trademark to "Terminator". Vintage Spintastic yo-yo models and packaging that still have Terminator on it are quite collectable now.

The naming of Spintastics has been quite inconsistent and confusing over the years. The company name printed in the yo-yo side caps and on packaging varied from "Oliver's Toys" to "Spintastics" to "Spintastics Skill Toys, Inc." to "Skill Toys, Inc.", and even "Dale Oliver's".

Original retail price: $12 US.
