A boys’ toy from the 1980s comes trundling back

It’s a significant moment in a chap’s life when they start making a song and dance about the revival of some childish thing you were unaware existed in the first place. The Bigtrak was apparently a big deal in something called the 1980s, of which I have little memory, either.

Well, anyway, Bigtrak is back. And pretty good it would be to have trundling around informal offices as a guy-bonding retro toy thing. I obviously needn’t tell you it’s a programmable tank with a blue photon beam headlamp and 23-button keypad, since, if you’re interested, you’ll know that anyway.
