Description
Whirly Wheelers contained a large yellow plastic, cycle track. On which you placed 4 magnetic cyclists. You then set the lap counter to the number of laps you wished to race and bet on the outcome. The racers legs actully moved as the cycles went around. And the winner race was random. The toy was by MB Games and use 4 C size bateries. Great fun.

I remember getting this for christmas, and when the nans grandads, autnies and uncles came around boxing day it replaced the annual 'newmarket' card game which was some feat but i also remember money changing hands as the adults were betting on the outcomes. I'd love to get one if anyone knows where i can ????

This was featured and demoed at the end of an episode of Are You Being Served? It was the one where the staff is put on temporary assignment to the toy department.

My dad has just given me a whirly wheelers game which has been in the loft for over 25 years. The box isn't int he best condition, tears on it and so fourth, but the actual game is in good condition. Just put batteries in and away it went, all the cyclists work, the magnets work and I have just cleaned the game up. If anyone wants one, the contact me, wainandtwells@aol.com.

I had this cycling game around 1977. I looked after it and kept it in mint condition. Then my mum thought I was too old for it and we sold it at a jumble sale a few years later.. I would love to own one again especially now I have two very young boys who would love it. I would pay a good price for one in mint condition. Contact darren.jackson5@ntlworld.com if you want to sell. Many thanks!
