    They were like these little black 'cassettes' with small plastic toys pressed into them (I remember the red one one having a helicopter, the yellow one a motorcycle, blue one a hovercraft etc), and a long piece of plastic cord with teeth and a finger hold. What you'd do is pop the little vehicles out and place them into a launching groove in the cassette, and then insert the cord and whip it out quickly to make the helicopter take off and the motorcycle speed away.

    Does anyone else remember these, and be able to tell me what they were called?
