A Screaming Yo-yo is a magical toy that presumably shrieks when a person plays with it. Argus Filch added the Yo-yos to the list of items forbidden at Hogwarts at the start of the 1994–1995 school year.
Screaming Yo-yos were sold at Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes for a price of five Galleons. Fred and George Weasley caught a boy trying to steal one of these and warned him that if he did so, he would be paying in more than Galleons.
