Peter Fish Glow "Pamela" Yo-Yo

Description (Brief):

This plastic yo-yo was made by Peter Fish (HK) Ltd. in the 1980s. It has a black rim and clear sides. The interior of each side is filled with silicone gel. Each side reads, “Pamela The World’s First Silicone Implanted Glow Yo Yo." This title is likely a sly nod to "Baywatch" television star Pamela Anderson (1967-.)
