|Sam's Toybox Homepage|
I've started selling some of my toys & collectibles.
The Aeronautical Lab Kit sold through Radio Shack in the early 1970s was indeed a cool toy and these copies are nearly intact. Manufactured by Logix Enterprises in Canada, the same company that manufactured the Logix 0-600 Computer and the Nautics Lab Kit, the kit discusses aeronautics from ballooning to rocketry. I had this kit as a child and like the owner of this one, did very few of the experiments.
Other rocket / flight / space related toys in my collection: Apollo 11 Playset by IPI Toys, Astro Launch Game by Ohio Art, Cap Rockets by various manufacturers, Cape Kennedy Carry-All by Marx, GI Joe Space Capsule by Hasbro, Johnny Astro by Topper, Moon Blast Off by Schaper.
|There were at least two different box lids for this kit as released by Science Fair (Radio Shack). This box is the one I had in the 70s. This version is mostly complete missing the rocket launch rod and a few other small pieces. Most pieces are still taped in place. Item number 28-196, dated 1973.|
|This is the kit released by Logix Enterprises under its own name. Mine still has quite a bit of the shrink wrap around it and is missing two small bags of parts and the rocket flame deflector. Item number 3500, dated 1973.|
