Very little is known about this odd 2001 Yomega release. It's not clear whether this yo-yo is a Yomega Brain (despite the packaging saying "Chara Brain") or a Yomega Fireball. It's also bizarre to have all English on the front of the package and all Japanese on the back of the package. One yo-yo halve includes the smallest Gumby and Pokie figures in the world (which, in 2018, could also be bought separately, made by Prema Toy Co.). A Yomega yo-yo model with Gumby and Prickle also exists. Any of these encapsulated rubber character Yomega yo-yos are very hard-to-find.

Prema Toy Co. also licensed the Yomega yo-yo for other tiny, yo-yo encased characters. There is a Sesame Street version that included miniatures of Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch. And yet another version with a miniature of PaRappa the Rapper encased in one halve.

Original retail price: $12 US.
