OwnerRick Brough

A Walt Disney Character yo-yo with a circular trio of Mickey Mouse heads on a red background, printed on a paper disk. The front of the card has a red background with Mickey Mouse throwing a "Sleeper" and Pluto playing with a yo-yo and Donald Duck in the background. Originally sold for 49 cents. The slogan on the card reads If it isn't Duncan it isn't yo-yo, a change from its former If it isn't a Duncan, it isn't a yo-yo slogan. Used a starburst response and a fixed, metal axle

The opposite side of the yo-yo has a colorful starburst design radiating from the center, also printed on a paper disk. The entire yo-yo is enclosed by clear plastic body halves. This yo-yo was a Duncan Imperial Junior (No. 450), just with Disney branding on one side. It was a smaller diameter yo-yo, but similar in shape to the slightly larger Duncan Imperial - No. 400.

Of historical interest...
Besides the regular edition of the Imperial Junior yo-yo, Duncan also turned the same model into a series of three different mouse-based yo-yos from Walt Disney. All three models used the same starburst design on the opposite side. The mouse-based yo-yos included the following:
1 – Mickey Mouse's head with Mickey Mouse Club in black text above the character's head.
2 – Heads of Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse with their respective names in black text above their respective heads.
3 – Trio of Mickey Mouse heads on a red background; no text.

Besides the three different mouse yo-yos, Duncan made two different Mickey Mouse cards to go with the yo-yos:
AWalt Disney Character Duncan Yo-Yo Return Top in black text, model No. 451, 49 cents. Mickey Mouse, Pluto, and Donald Duck appear on front of card.
BDuncan Official Mickey Mouse Club Yo-Yo Return Top in black text, model No. 1451, 59 cents. Mickey Mouse and the Mickey Mouse Club emblem appear on front of card.

And here are a few of the yo-yo + card combinations that I have come across:
1+B in polybag
2+A in polybag
3+B in polybag
3+B in bubble blister
3+A in polybag

Whether these yo-yo + card combinations were by design, by error, or completely random is unknown.
