Schaper U-DRIVE-IT

The U-FLY-IT set certainly seems to stir a lot of memories in kids lucky to own one. I was lucky enough to own a another toy in the Schaper capital letter, U-DO-IT series, the U-DRIVE-IT. While not quite as exciting as the sorta airborne U-FLY-IT, I thought my hand me down U-DRIVE-IT was the cat’s meow. It was certainly the closest think I would get to the driving simulator pre-Atari. So how did it work? Well luckily for us Toy King Wonder has put together a video demonstrating his working U-DRIVE-IT. Watch it and before you know it, U-WANT-IT.

    I think a neighbor kid had one of these when I was little. I remember playing something of the sort & wishing that I had one.
