A ball bearing yo-yo with a lenticular action pog in one of the halves of a guy doing Rock the Baby. The Vid-E-Yo specs are the same as the Turbo Bumble Bee.

Came in opaque crayon colors with the World Team Pro-Yo Logo on one side. The other side featured Playmaxx's top demonstrators performing a single trick on special lenticular side caps. Just tip the yo-yo back and forth and watch them play. As with the Bee, this version uses patented Brake Pad Technology and a ball bearing axle. It also came with replaceable axles ... fixed brass, fixed wood, and brass transaxle to swap out the ball bearing axle. Extra Bee strings also included. This yo yo came in 10 designs and 8 different colors.

Notice the bee sticker on the sides of the packaging that sealed the box. There was inconsistency in how these stickers were applied to boxes, from product to product. Some boxes had a sticker applied to both sides, while some had just one sticker applied to one side. There are other boxes that had no stickers at all.

As of October 2015, the Vid-E-Yo was still readily available from numerous websites.
