SKF (Swedish Bearing Company) made some bearing yoyos in the 80’s. I think those were the first bearing yoyos ever made, not sure though.

Ball bearing yo-yo was patented (approved; filed Jan. 3, 1963) March 30, 1965
“Ball Bearing Toy” M.S. Isaacson #3,175,326

I believe he was also the first to add weight rings to the periphery of a yo-yo.


Nah, he meant SKF
Stands for the company’s name in Swedish or something.

Oops, sorry I didnt know about those! Sorry for being wrong haha, but I was close. The SB-2 was the first successful ball bearing yoyo, at least I think so anyways.

Makes me sad people can’t seem to read…
