The Beverly Hills YoYo is made from laminated, exotic hardwoods. Considered more of a novelty yo-yo, it is considered jumbo sized at 87 mm diameter; weight is a whopping 132 grams. Used a regular cotton string. Another version of this same yo-yo exists with the Apple logo engraved on one side. That version was made exclusively for Apple employees.

Yo-yo was made by Wood of a Kind, 5767 W. Adams Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90016. Originally sold for $19 each or two for $38. See their ad in the January/February 1990 issue of Yo-Yo Times.
