An electronic yo-yo with an LCD display that tracks four performance modes: Speed, Distance Traveled, Sleep Time, and the number of reps you have taken, and a regular clock. At the time, this was the first and only yo-yo on the market that had electronic interactivity. This innovative functionality added another interesting dimension to yo-yo play for young children.

Tiger Electronics, founded June 15, 1978, was an independent American toy manufacturer based out of Vernon Hills, Illinois. They were well known for releasing a variety of handheld electronic games, and for Furby and Giga Pets. They were also adept at combining electronics with licenses such as Star Wars and Pokemon, and their very own Furby line. Many of these pop culture icons were combined with yo-yos during the last yo-yo boom which occurred around 1998-2001. The Tiger Electronics brand ended 2012 and was absorbed into Hasbro.
