The plastic Super Yo Spin Boss had red caps on blue body halves. This model of yo-yo was unique for several reasons. The plastic was heat sensitive so it change color like a mood ring, depending on how warm your hand was when you held the yo-yo. You could also easily reconfigure the yo-yo into three different shapes: "Imperial", "Butterfly", and "Camel".

The Spinboss used a fixed axle with a starburst response. And, the yo-yo came with the string in a "hitch" configuration, similar to Yomega yo-yos. That is, the string was already wrapped three times around the axle. The hitch made the yo-yo play easily for beginners. As you advanced in your play, you simply removed two of the three wraps of the yo-yo string from around the axle. The single wrap of the string made the Spinboss sleep easier so you could perform more complex tricks.

Collected June, 1997.

Original retail price: $10 US.
