During the 70s the yo-yo mania was a hit in Manila . These yo-yos were given as promotional items by Coca-Cola that could be exchanged if you find a FREE Yo-yo under the bottle cap. They were not sold to the general public and quite hard to find. Each yo-yo is classified depending on one’s expertise - Beginner, Spinner, Professional, and Super. TV noon time shows like Student Canteen have an exhibition contest for the best Coca Cola yo-yo player to promote these toys.
Coca-Cola Company branded yo-yos are the most collected brand of yo-yos, sought after by kids, yo-yo collectors and the collectors of Coca-Cola memorabilia. The company has been producing advertising yo-yos and sponsoring contests for decades, the most memorable being the partnership with Russell in the 1970's and 1980's.
These Coca Cola yo-yos were made in the Philippines and were distributed worldwide.
