Festival Be-A-Sport - Football
Exhibit #3543
PackagingBubble Carded
ConstructionMulti-piece plastic
ConditionMint in Package
OwnerRick Brough

Bubble carded plastic yo-yo in the shape of a football. Made by Festival Toys from about 1972 or 1973.

The "Be-A-Sport" series was a product line that Festival made and sold for more than ten years. The series of plastic yo-yos began selling in the late 1960s and continued production, albeit under at least five complete packaging re-designs, until the very late 70s. The series included yo-yos in the shape of sporting goods, including a football, basketball, baseball, eight ball, tennis ball, bowling ball, and golf ball. Yo-Yos shaped like hockey pucks were also made by Festival but were not part of the Be-A-Sport series.

In 1965, just before their bankruptcy, Duncan introduced of their Sportsline models, all in the shape of round sports balls. Duncan re-introduced the same Sportsline yo-yos in 2003 and added the football.
