YoYoFactory's Pocket Change from 2009.

From yoyorewind.com:
"Big colors in a small package, Pocket Change is the little brother of YoYoFactory's Offstring, complete with interchangeable parts.

Currently, the most popular style of yo-yos are twist-apart style, where you just unscrew the sides to open the yo-yo. The Pocket Change breaks with this trend, and not only twists apart from the side caps, but the entire yo-yo can be taken apart and its parts can be exchanged with those from YoYoFactory's Offstring model. The main internal difference between the Pocket Change and its big brother is that while the Offstring uses a 2-hole response system, Pocket Change employs a silicone response pad.

In other words, if you take the response system from the Pocket Change and add the rubber rims from the Offstring, you'll create an off string yo-yo with superior smoothness and response. How nice of YoYoFactory to make the Center Trac bearing standard equipment. Even without trading out parts, the Pocket Change makes a fine 1A yo-yo, with a wide gap setting, it has a smooth response. It's weight is proper at 66 grams (65.3 grams without string). You can either play as is, or mix up the parts with Offstring for a different feel. No tools are necessary for assembly and disassembly.

The package also is covered in pop design, letting YoYoFactory's playfulness shine through."
