Tiger Electronics' Furby yo-yo from 1999 released at the height of Furby's popularity. As with all Tiger Electronic yo-yos, this model featured a standard sized body with a roller bearing (transaxle) axle system. The Furby molded into the yo-yo halve was in a raised relief form. It also included bright flashing lights on the sides, and a variety of pre-programmed Furby phrases built into the hollow of the body. During the same time period as this yo-yo, Hi-C drink, in conjunction with Tiger Electronics, had a contest in which you could win a Furby Yo-Yo. The ad for the contest also included a Furby dictionary on the back of the ad.

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.
