Arrowcopter is a plastic toy consisting of a body and wing with a wooden dowel and rubber band used as a launching mechanism. When launched up into the sky, it soars 200 to 300 feet. It goes up like an arrow, turns over at its peak height and twirls down gently as it returns to the ground.
Arrowcopter Flying toys were introduced to America at the New York Toy Fair in 1968. Over 9 million Arrowcopters were sold in just 3 years. In the early 1970's Arrowcopter was the third best selling toy in America. Arrowcopters were reintroduced to a whole new generation in 1990 after being off the market for 17 years. Arrowcopters are not mass marketed so you will not find them in any major discount retail stores. Still made in America, Arrowcopter has become a true classic American toy!
