This invention relates to a toy usable in pri
marily two different manners, one in the nature
and be carried through the passageway IT on
of the popularly designated “yo-yo” and the other
diametrically across the outer side of the mem
ber [0; back through the passageway I4 and
thence outwardly between the members i8‘ and I I
through the space i3 to extend by a desired length
and carry in its outer end portion a button or
stop member E9 of such dimensions that it may
not be entered within the space I3. This forms a
across the space 53; through the passageway I5;
as in the case of a pair of buttons strung on a
looped string wherein the loops are pulled out
wardly and released inwardly as the buttons wind
and unwind substantially intermediate the ends
of those loops.
A primary purpose of the present invention is
to provide a unique stringing of the toy to per
mit secure anchorage of the string to the body of
the toy whereby the one string may serve in both
usages as above indicated without having to
change the string attachment or disengage one
member from another making up the toy.
very secure anchoring of the string I8.

Referring to Fig. 2, a variation of the thread
ing of the string through the members Ill and H
is indicated. The members l0 and I I and the pin
I2 may be identical with those members as iridi
cated in Fig. 1. In‘ this instance however an end
of the string i8 is provided with a knot 2!] in its
end opposite the end to which the button 59: is
secured. For securing that button IS, the free end
of the‘ string is carried from the knot 2:3 through
the passageway I6; across the space l3‘ and on out

I mount a pair of disc like members EB and ll
on a common pin I2 to have a space 33 left there
between.
The members it‘ and II are rounded
from their outer faces towardv the inner opposing ‘
faces de?ning the space I3, these inner faces be
ing planar and parallel one with another.
The members it and II are respectively pro
vided with transverse passageways l4, l5 and l6,

from the axis of the pin E2 to have the passage
ways I4 and I6 on a common axis and the pas

allowing the body composed of the members’ I53‘, I I
and‘ I2’ to' roll downwardly in a string‘ unwinding
manner and then upwardly as the string re
winds.
However, the stringing of the string in either
instance permits the toy to be used as indicated
in Fig. 3 wherein the string I8 is pulled outwardly
from the sides of the members It and II to form
the loops 2i and 22 whereby the button I9 is

connected by a pin in spaced apart relation to
form a spool-like body; each of said members
being provided with a pair of longitudinal pas
2| and 22 in outward positions so that those loops
become twisted. Then by alternately pulling out
wardly on the loops and then slightly releasing
them, the body will spin on the string to wind
and unwind.
While I have herein shown and described my
invention in the forms now best known to me,
it is obvious that structural changes may be em

the invention, and I therefore do not desire to
be limited to those precise forms as may be im
posed by the following claims.
