Stamp on yo-yo says BIG "D" SLEEPER KING with 3 stars before and after "BIG". Translucent colorless body. An early Dell yo-yo. The packaging uses the word "yo-yo" on it, but the yo-yo itself does not have the word imprinted on it. Dell, along with Royal Yo-Yos, was sued by Duncan over use of the term "yo-yo" on their packaging. Rather than go through costly litigation, Dell chose to discontinue their yo-yo product line.

Originally retailed with a pre-printed price of $1.00.
