1981 Duncan Catalog- Yo-Yo’s- Batmobile

1981 Duncan Catalog- Yo-Yo’s- Batmobile

Most people know Duncan from their Yo-Yo products which they still sell to this day but their 1981 catalog shows a company branching out into different things, mostly toy cars and trucks but also licensed items like the Batmobile.

Yo-yo’s and trucks are a weird combination..


Ah vans with rainbowy things painted on them, a big holdover from the late 70s..


I always forget that Duncan also made a Batmobile, that TV series design got a lot of mileage…



Licensed Superhero Yo-Yo product, this is likely still being done today….
