For either your kids or the big kid in you, these retro tin space toys should offer up some fun for not a lot of cash.
Both Sky Rocket and Space Blaster are new toys based on vintage designs. Space Blaster is the classic 50s sci-fi ray gun – just pull the trigger for a ‘whirring’ noise and a few few sparks at the end. Sky Rocket is friction-powered spaceship, again with those 50s looks, you can roll this along the floor then watch it ‘fly’ (across the tiles – no chance of a real lift-off).
Both are available online, with Space Blaster retailing for $15.98 (around £8) and Sky Rocket selling for $14.98 (around £7.50).
