Thread: Retro toy query...help please :)

  1. Default Retro toy query...help please :)

    Hey guys.
    Does anyone remember a toy in the late 80s/early 90s that comprised a small black box that could be stored on your keyring and it had about 9 buttons on there that made different noises when pressed. Its been bugging me for a while now and it's time to end the misery and hope you can help me find it out. I'm trying to find one on eBay but it's difficult not knowing what it was called. I collect toys from the 80s/90s and I used to have one but my parents threw it out when I was younger as I used to play with it all the time.

    Cheers all

    I had one of these but had totally forgotten about it until I just read your post! I can't remember what they were called but I do remember loads of people at school having one, if I had to guess I'd say I had mine around 1991. I'll have a look around and see what I can find, I'd love to see some pictures of this again.

    I've got "Bullseye In My Pocket" Well, on my keys really. I had Mr T but he fell off somewhere. I pity the fool who found him....

    Nah quite a bit of time before those. They were black, square and about the size of a small match box. They had 9 different sounds on there like sirens and things.

    found a similar thing from america that had the same sounds on it but I'm looking for the keychain version of the bulky one you could attach to your car dashboard or bike handle bars - that was called The Revenger if that rings any bells with anyone. I'd love to get hold of the ones we had in the UK.

    I remember these being around in the spring - summer of 1989.

    They were fairly cheap & available from market stalls.

    The sounds I remember were a machine gun & a falling bomb.
