Yo-Yo---Goody Genuine Master Filipino Twirler

Another nice yo-yo from our collection. This is a Goody Master with a jewel in the center. These were made in the 1950s and 60s and are highly sought after. This one is in excellent condition with just a little edge-wear from throwing, not walking. It has a natural finish with what appears to be a light coat of varnish. The painted stamp is very close to perfect and the jewel is clear.

Writing of jewels, unlike Duncan which drilled holes for jewels and then painted the yo-yo, Goody drilled holes after the yo-yo was painted.

Goody Manufacturing Company was in direct competition with Duncan for the yo-yo market, but they didn’t call their product “yo-yo”. They were called “Twirler” or “Filipino Twirler”, thus avoiding any possible lawsuit with Duncan who was trying to trademark the generic word “yo-yo.” They had their own demonstrators, and contests too.
