Here's an undated, two-sided Kilgore trade ad. This side features Count Down - Magnetic Space Race Game featuring "Whirling Willie" the flying robot:

The reverse side depicts the Atlas Satellite Launcher:

Both these toys are new to me. Has anyone else seen them?

Image posting assistance greatly appreciated.

As always, THANKS, Doc !

And THANKS also for stepping up to the plate and being this year's "point man" for Botstock VIII.

BTW, I did some checking and found that "Whirling your Willie" in public could result in fines and/or imprisonment in most States in the Union, parts of Canada and some European countries! :lol:

Thought I'd bring this topic up once more to see if these close-up images might help to shed any new light

on these two Kilgore toys:

Count Down Magnetic Space Race Game (featuring Whirling Willie the Flying Robot):

"Whirling Willie" the flying robot delivers satellite to rotating, numbered space station for scoring.

Child controls robot launching by count down. Sturdy, colorful plastic construction - intriguing

SPACE AGE appearance and action!"

Atlas Satellite Launcher Makes the SPACE AGE come alive!

"Beautiful red and white plastic 3-stage breakaway rocket with launching pad and two Styrofoam

satellites. The satellite is launched and kept in orbit by blowing through mouthpiece. Easy to

operate - practice enables satellite to be orbited up to 12 inches from launching pad! Rocket

emits realistic "beep - beep" signals while satellite is orbiting."

I just purchased Kilgore Count Down The Magnetic Space Race.

Whirling Willie The Flying Robot in the box. Top flap of the box is missing.
Was told this is next to impossible to find :)
