"Big" News for boys of a certain age......

I spotted this in the window of Model Zone in Brighton this morning.

This is BigTrak.

If you don't immediately recognise this toy then I'm afraid you really missed out as a child! This was "THE" must have gift at Christmas every boy of a certain age wanted.

The basis is simple - there's a keypad on top of the Trak into which you program unstructions (turn right, turn left, forwards etc etc). It became a bit of a cult item. Not least of all because of the terrible TV adverts that accompanied its promotion.

At £39.99 in 1980 this was a big ticket item that any recipient of this as a gift would've been eternally grateful!

Sadly I never got one :(

"Well done BigTrak!"

From the Wiki...
Zeon Ltd are planning a 2010 release of a full size replica of the original toy along with a re-release of the trailer accessory. [2], [3] The colour and graphic scheme is re-created from the U.K version and all stickers have been redrawn as a direct copy of the original artwork.

St Peter's Church

One of the most striking landmarks as you come into Brighton from the direction of London. This is St Peter's Church.

And interestingly it's one of the most social media savvy church websites I've seen - go take a look here
