The Coca-Cola Yo-Yos of the 1980's sparked one of the earliest yo-yo booms in recent memory in Japan. This 2010 version pays homage to Coca-Cola's contribution to yo-yo history, recreated in the same "Georgia Green" as the famous Coca-Cola bottle, with two different designs of the decade's Coke logo on the side caps. This particular model sports the 1980s era Coke logo on side A, while the side B pog cap says, "Coca-Cola Classics - Have a Coke and a smile - 1980s".

Made by a Japanese company called Matsui Gaming Machine. The ball bearing axle is size L, the same size used in Italian Oxygene and German ILYY Yo-Yos. Interestingly, the bubble portion of the package very roughly translates to the shape of a Coke bottle.

Cames with three extra red strings.
