Detectolab!Sam's Toybox Homepage

I've started selling some of my toys & collectibles.
See my eBay Store for current listings. Thanks, Sam

The Detectolab! sold through Radio Shack in the 1970s (or early 1980s) was indeed a cool toy and this copy is still mint/shrinkwrapped, though the "Secret Ink" ran out of the bottle onto some other pieces in the kit. A comprehensive scientific Detective Kit, it included more than 80 experiments in crime detection and came with a 30 Power Light Microscope for examining fingerprints. How cool is that! Item number 28-188, I believe from the late 1970s.
