This executive desk toy was bought in 1991 from Hamleys Toy Shop in London. Hamleys, in Regent Street in central London, is the largest toy shop in the world, and as it was founded in 1760, is almost certainly the oldest as well!
The base unit contains the batteries and the motor. When you are feeling stressed, you place the little helicopter on top of the base unit, and press the power button. This causes the helicopter rotor to spin. Once you are at full spin, you orient the launch platform in the required direction, and press the release button. The little helicopter flies into the air, taking all your stress with it!
The original name for this toy was The Stress Express.
