              I had one of those Vertibird helicoptor things, but mine was the Starship Enterprise from Star Trek. I have to say, I thought it was one of the dullest toys ever. Barely more interesting than the compass set I got from education-minded relatives that year!

                  That last one, the Timpo Prairie Rocket was produced for years and years, in vast numbers and is still quite valuable.
                  Sub-sets of Wild West Collectors and Model Railway Enthusiasts are both after it:
                  on-line prices 60-145 I've seeen quoted. Picked up mine battered for a tenner, as I wanted it for cannibalisation purposes. But the result has served on an exhibition model railway for ten years.

                  A couple currently on eBay, cheap, (so far).

                  We did have fun when I brought in a vertibird clone (Chopper Patrol) to work, and set it up in an empty room. That was seriously popular but only a minority of us really got the hang of it... Which made the rest want to get better, and those few want to show off.

                              where DO they think of these odd tie-ups?

                              Sid James Pot Black Snooker?
