Based on the popular profile of the General-Yo 5 Star, the Mini Star yo-yo aimed to pack all the performance of the 5 star into an undersized body. The width, diameter, and weight of the 5 Star was altered by Ernie Kaiser, owner of General-Yo in California, to create the perfect ratio for an undersized yo-yo.

This edition of the General-Yo Mini Star yo-yo was exclusive to the former YoYoNation.com website (2006 – March 2012). It was released in June 2010. Production was supposedly 22 pieces. Uses a size C AIGR bearing and General-Yo Had Pad smooth response pads for this dead response yo-yo.

There was also made available at the same time as the release of the red version in this exhibit, a limited quantity of pre-production Mini Star's in polished raw aluminum that sold for $80 original retail price. They were sold at YoYoNation.com and YoYoNation.co.uk.

Original retail price: $90 US.
