Vertibird Air Police Helicopter

“Vertibird” Air Police Helicopter made by Mattel
This was actually pretty good and kept me amused for ages. At forst of course I was trying to use the dual control Helicopter to pick up the cat etc but then, like boys do, I would have to set up a challenge to find out how much it could lift so all the cars, tanks and Thunderbirds would come out to see how powerful it was.

If I remember right it failed miserably but it was quite a neat toy to have in your toy box.
Price circa 1976 from Argos £7.45

70s Toys & Games

Remember the old retro toys you used to play with? Did you bounce about on spacehoppers, play pong or ride around on your cool Chopper? Can you recall the heroes Twirling Tim and Hurricane Hank, and who they used to do battle with in the arena? Did you used to come home from school with bruised knuckles from trying to beat 100 clacks on your Klackers? Or was you the studious type carefully making lovely patterns with your Spirograph which, no matter how careful you were, always seemed to cut through the paper turning your masterpiece into a mess.
