Yet another tremendously cool game line from Mattel in the early 1960's. A two-four player game where the guilty party is sniffed out by following clues from the twenty-four suspects. Each suspect has one clue and by using the lie detector it can be determined whether or not they are telling the truth. The clues are things like: "Had a thick lower lip", "Has wavy hair" and allow one to eliminate various suspects. No batteries needed for this one, the detector is spring loaded and rings a bell (and points to false) if one of the suspects gives you invalid information. Very ingenious game.
Other spy toys in my collection: FBI Jr. by Nasta, Radio Rifle from Mattel's Agent Zero M line, Sixfinger by Topper Toys, Sooper Snooper by Marx. Lots of Spy Toys of all kind are available on Amazon.com
|Spy Detector Game, stock number 5411, dated 1963. This box holds up much better than the Lie Detector one. Alas, my box has been ripped and taped in a number of places.|
|The Spy Detector itself, dated 1960 on the True/False cardboard and 1961 on the bottom plastic. Some paint wear on the face but not too bad.||Examples of the game accessories. My version is complete.|
