Sponsors and Curators
The Museum of Yo-Yo History is a labor of love, and we would not be able to stay up-to-date with exhibits without the support of our sponsors and curators. 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!

If you're a manufacturer, or just a big collector and you want to help support the Museum drop me at line at chimera@yoyomuseum.com

A basic, three piece beginner-sized wooden yo-yo, two in a package, for 29 cents. The copyright on the header card says 1959. Sold in the late 50s and early 60s.

No where on the packaging or the yo-yos is the word "yo-yo" used; only "Return Top".

At the time this model of yo-yo came out, Fli-Back was based in High Point, North Carolina. The company would eventually be sold in the late 60s to Ohio Art Company in Bryan, Ohio, maker of the Etch-A-Sketch, among other toys.
