I was going through my eldest son’s old toy box and found this propeller launcher toy. I remember, as a kid I used to enjoy playing with this toy. Some of you might call it ‘helicopter’. The launcher is a simple gadget using rubber bands as a recoil spring so that whenever you pull the monofilament string it will recoil back to its original position. My friends and I had hours of fun trying to see whose propeller can fly the highest at the field near my house.
My little toddler seems amused by this little gadget. I ended up having to launch the propeller using the launcher many times for him because he cannot get it right!
I guess this little wonderful and simple toy will not be popular anymore soon as many kids nowadays prefer to play computer games.
