The Evel Knievel Dare Devil Stunt Set is is a great retro toy for boys and their dads! It will not only satisfy their need for speed and adventure, but will be a "blast from the past" for their dads too!
For those too young to remember the 1970s, Evel Knievel was a stunt motorcyclist, as famous for his spectacular crashes as for the feats that he achieved. He sadly passed away on the 30th November 2007.
A whole range of toys were launched during his heyday including figures, motor bikes and play sets and to this day many of the original toys change hands for large sums of money on internet auction sites.
The new Deluxe Dare Devil Stunt Set is made to the authentic 1970s design and tooled from the original toy moulds, the gyro-powered cycle comes with a poseable figure, ramps, jumping wall, ring of fire and much more.
Make the cycle flip, jump and soar through the air. But the beauty is that crashes are all part of the fun and will be completely painless!
Each set is uniquely numbered and comes complete with a certificate of authenticity making it a true collector's edition. Plus, and as an added bonus, an Evel Knievel book is included which depicts his truly remarkable life story.
There had been a recent resurgence in the stuntman's popularity. Recently his most famous rocket flight over Snake River Canyon in the USA was used in a music video by rap superstar Kanye West. Plus in the recent BAFTA awards Jonathan Ross reminisced over his love of the Evel Knievel toys when he was a kid.
Just make sure that Dad lets the kids play with it too!
