Fli-Back three piece wooden yo-yo with a metallic foil sticker in red background. An outer circle in gold and an inner circle in gold, surrounded by "Fli-Back Yo-Yo" also in gold lettering between the outer and inner circle. The finish of the yo-yo itself is only fair.

Stock number F43. There is no UPC code on the packaging so the yo-yo is before 1980. Looks to be from about 1975 or 1976. It likely sold for $2.00 or less.

No information printed on the back. Information printed on the front says, left to right, "Fli-Back Company, Inc., High Point, N.C. 27261 Subsidiary of the Ohio Art Co., Bryan, Ohio. In 1972, the Fli-Back Company was bought by Ohio Art, the original makers of Etch-A-Sketch. Eventually Fli-Back went out of business in the early 1980s.
