Old Butterfly/Grandma’s Collection

Anyone know if this butterfly originally came with these two different colored sides? This is from my late grandmother’s collection, and I don’t picture her ever half-swapping sides. Also, any guesses on the age? It played amazingly well and no axle rust.

Yeah, I’ve got some like that, it’s from the factory. I believe the little butterfly logo is late 60’s early 70’s.

That’s cool. It’s a weird color combo choice, but maybe it makes sense for the 60s/70s? I found this in the Pizza Hut box where my grandmother stored her yoyo collection.

These are so great! Did your Grandmother teach you to yoyo?

Out of context, this sounds pretty harsh :rofl:

I’m also curious about this. Looks like she had quite an affinity for yo-yos.
