The Trickster was one of Hummingbird's most popular yo-yo models. Dyed thin strips of maple wood were glued together to create colorful patterns, in this case rainbow. Unlike solid wood yo-yos, laminated wood helped to create a better balanced yo-yo and prevented warping. Tricksters were three piece wooden yo-yos with a glued wooden axle.

A very beautiful yo-yo. This particular laminate model is challenging to find.

Original retail price: $7 US.
