Big Trak is back enabling parents of today to buy one of the most memorable toys from their past and bring it back to life for their own children to enjoy and of course for those who simply wish to have the toy they were never lucky enough to own as a child.
It was the subject of a massive craze in the 1980s and the toy you simply had to have! A simply brand new retro experience!
Easy enough for kids to learn, but so much fun, even adults won't be able to resist.
Boasting all the features of the original model, including 23 button keypad, front-mounted blue photon beam headlamp and the ability to store up to 16 preset programmes.
With a 23-button keypad on its back, you can programme the plastic tank to trundle forward, then turn, then trundle some more... You get the picture. It also had 16 presets to perform predefined sequences of movements. It is like magic.
The revived Big Trak is an authentic reproduction that will boast all the features of the original, including the ubiquitous '80s go-faster stripes and blue headlamp.
The centre wheels are driven by two motors to allow change of direction. Use the 23-button keypad to enter instructions for Big Trak.
