DALEKS BAGATELLE...


DALEKS copyright BBC TV & The Estate of TERRY NATION

I used to have this little beauty when I was a kid.  MARX
TOYS did some great stuff in their day, shame they're not
still around.  Anyone else have this DALEKS bagatelle?

They had loads of these types of bagatelle thingies around when I was growing up. The mechanism never varied much,but I loved the different themed backdrops. Still get a shiver of delight when I see them. Proper little time portals...

The ones I remember having, Moony, are the Daleks and Fireball XL5 bagatelles. Would love to have them again. Was lucky enough to acquire a Yogi Bear one a little while back, but I don't think I ever had it as a kid.

Never actually saw one of these " in the flesh ". Along similar lines, I did buy the " War Of The Daleks " board game in the 70's for my brother's Christmas, only to discover on Xmas Day, that the centre part was broken!
So I had to drive to the town I had bought it from on the 27th with no receipt and no guarantee that they would have any left in the hope of an exchange. But our luck was in! ( Phew!)

I wish someone would re-release those Marx Bagatelles, JP - I'd snap them up. I've got one of the Daleks from the game you mention, but never had the game itself.

I recall getting similar items like this as a kid, either called "Bagatelles" or "Pinball" just to confuse us Americans!

Kid said...

Two names for the same thing, Chris - both equally valid. Pinball is a name I associate more with American gangsters 'though.

I bet!

Of course when I think of Bagatelle, I'm thinking of some fancy bread item. (yes, Baguettes)

You're making me hungry, Chris.
