Duncan Butterfly Yo-Yo

<< >>
Description (Brief)
This orange plastic “Duncan Butterfly” yo-yo was made Flambeau Products in the late 1990s. The Duncan Toys Company lost its trademark for the term “yo-yo” in 1965. The legal costs of the decision forced the company into bankruptcy. Flambeau, who had been making plastic yo-yos for Duncan since 1955, bought Duncan's name in 1968.
