Product Details

Bigtrak is back! You might remember having one of these in the early 80's. Retro and cool but updated for the 21st Century! If you are of a certain age, you either owned one or wanted one. It is also a great educational toy for children.

This programmable educational toy is a six-wheeled tank with a front mounted blue photon beam headlamp used for firing. The centre wheels are driven by two motors to allow change of direction. Use the 23-button keypad to enter instructions for Bigtrak. Where do I want Bigtrak to go? In what direction? How many units will it take to reach my goal? When do I want Bigtrak to fire? Do I want Bigtrak to return to me along a different course? With a 16 command memory, Bigtrak will execute 16 commands in one sequence, e.g. 'go forward 5 lengths', 'pause', 'turn 30 degrees right', 'fire phaser' and so on. There is a 'repeat' instruction allowing simple loops.

Bigtrak appeared in the movie, ET, alongside Drew Barrymore!
