Blast From The Past As Menkind Brings Out The Big Guns With New Product Announcement

It was the subject of a massive craze in the 1980s and the toy
you simply had to have. Now, decades later, Big Trak is making a
comeback with the UK’s favourite gifts and gadgets retailer, Menkind.
This six-wheeled, high-tech monster was once roaming around houses all over the
world and now it’s about to do the same again. Punch instructions into Big Trak’s
keypad and the tank will obey, zooming across the lounge or lurking by a kitchen
cupboard before pulling a sharp turn and firing its photon canon. Wives and
girlfriends watch out!
There’s loads of fun to be had with Big Trak including plotting routes around your
office, ambushing friends and delivering the TV remote to someone else in the lounge
if you just can’t face moving.
Not content with releasing details of just one new product, Menkind has announced it
is also about to start stocking the new official Doctor Who Sonic Screwdriver.
Around in various forms since the 60s, the Doctor’s most useful tool has broken
locks, mended electrical faults and remotely controlled the TARDIS.
And while the new BBC licensed sonic screwdriver might not be too helpful if you
find yourself in another dimension by accident, it certainly looks the business. The
screen accurate, die-cast replica has lights and sound effects, and interchangeable
heads with Philips and flathead screwdriver extensions.
You’ll never be stuck for a screwdriver again or fail to impress a fan of the show
with this in your pocket.
Paul Kraftman, managing director of Menkind, said: "We know full well that boys
love their toys, and expect these two iconic products to go down a storm. Big Trak
was a huge hit when it was released back in 1979 and the 21st century remake brings
all those childhood memories flooding back.
"The Doctor uses the sonic screwdriver to open doors all over the universe and we
know people are going to have fun trying to do the same! Would you ever want to use
a normal screwdriver again after using Doctor Who’s?"
