Thinking about what's in my forgotten loft I remembered there are two loose Barbie Jumbo Jets from 1999 parked under the eves. How on earth I got them home from car boot sales I dunno. Probably flew them!
The Jumbo is a huge blue plastic plane that opens up to let kids get to grips with aviation. Here's a piccy from Ebay. Don't think I have that trolley step.
Here's the TV ad from '99 courtesy of You Tube:
As this is a Barbie jet it would also fit Action Man, GI Joe and his 12 inch pals. Well, at least two of them and a pilot if Barbie was off clubbing and Ken was off chatting up Sindy!
In fact I'm sure its much bigger than any plane released for Action Man. Not sure about GI Joe though.
There's a neat working microphone on board too for those urgent doll announcements like:
"Would anyone made by Palitoy and Hasbro please sit down!" or "No drinks will be served on this flight as none of you have mouths that open!"
[I'm sure you can think of more!]
Barbie's jet has a sort of Thunderbird 2 look about it too. I wonder if greater hands than mine could Thunderbirderise it into one?
One day I'll go into the loft and get these Jumbo's out of the hangar again.
Have you any large toy planes?
