Very true. I remember a friend of mine and I got a book from the library of all kinds of ways to make paper airplanes, when we were kids. We spent almost the entire summer making them. It was great.

I had Digital Derby as well :) . I too remember taking it apart as the cars were on a plastic belt.
Sadly, all my toys from childhood ended up looking like they went thru a wood chipper. :cry:

P.S.-I too also had Blip haha, right before I got Coleco Electronic Quarterback for Xmas.
Fun stuff for it's time.

I can remember collecting ice lolly sticks with codes printed on them, and when you had enough, you could send them away to claim a free game-and-watch type clone.

The one I had was a circus elephant balancing on a ball.

Mid-eighties, IIRC.

I must see if there is an emulator for it...
