An Original and Genuine National Jewelled Satellite Yo-Yo Top. These were sold in Canada by the National Yo-Yo company in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Some amateur collectors mistakenly believe these jewelled models are Parker (Brothers) brand yo-yos. Parker never made or sold a Jewelled Satellite model. Furthermore, all Parker yo-yo models (such as the Junior and the Pro Tournament) had "Parker" included on the yo-yo's seal. Only National Yo-Yo company sold the Jewelled Satellite model seen in this exhibit and as evidence from their 1969 Product sheet and their 1973 Product sheet.

Original retail price: 98¢ Canadian.

National Yo-Yo company was sold to Parker Bros. of Canada in 1978.
