Duncan Bowling Ball Yo-Yo

Description (Brief)
This plastic yo-yo was made by the Duncan Toys Company in the 1960s. Resembling a black bowling ball, it was made as a promotion for Amflite’s bowling line. It was one of the last lines Duncan produced before it was bought by Flambeau Products Corp. in 1968. The success of the bowling ball model prompted Duncan to create an entire "Sportsline" series of yo-yos imitating balls from various sports.
