— Ron and Fred and George discussing the price of a Screaming Yo-yo[src]

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.[1]

George Weasley: "Pocket that and you'll pay in more than Galleons, my friend."
Fred and George Weasley: "We've got eyes in the back of our heads."
— To a browsing boy[src]

Screaming Yo-yos were sold at Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes for a price of five Galleons.[2] Fred and George Weasley caught a boy trying to steal one of these[3] and warned him that if he did so, he would be paying in more than Galleons.
