|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.
