As in the Soviet Union was stealing toys

Как в СССР воровали игрушки

Actually, the whole history with the study of Soviet plagiarism reminds me of watching some crime Comedy when a detective in the process learns that the Bank robbery was itself a Bank staff, police officers, and half the population of the nearby town — so it was serious and ambitious). And here — by the way, are all new and new layers of plagiarism, no end in sight. In the end it may be that the Soviet Union was to create only screws GTF-16 and the book “Buildings of the XI five-year plan”.

02. “U Drive it”, 1974 and “the wheel”, 1977. Game “driving” was in my childhood — the body was blue and white steering wheel, the ignition key didn’t work — my brother and I just launched the game from the rectifier is connected to 220 volts. The game principle is the following — disk drive with roads and bridges is rotated by the electric motor, and under the disk is strap driven wheel. The strap is magnetized to the machine, and when the disk starts rotating machine can be controlled. Play is quite interesting.

All anything, but the Soviet game “Behind the wheel” was fully copied poyavivshiesya three years Rania of the game “U Drive it”. There is a slightly different design that is on the disk, but the principle is identical — rotating disk, car magnets, steering wheel and transmission (which regulate the rotation speed of the disk).

04. “Tonka Tractor, 1967” and a tractor “Parsley”, 1984. Another toy from my childhood — so traktoria was great to play in the sandbox — however, in the ribbed wheel quickly stuffed the stones, then they had to clean Popsicle stick or a match. As you can see, the toy was completely copied from “Tonka Reactor” that came out already in the seventies, moreover, in contrast to gun above (there is at least the design has changed) here, stripped of all “zero” — the layout of the invoice metallic parts, wheel design, seat and radiators, arrangement and number of parts, etc.

05. “Tomy Waterful ring-toss”, 1976 and “the Juggler, 1986. We pass to water procedures. Remember such an unusual game called “Juggler”, in which the Foundation of the gameplay was liquid properties of water? The game had one button that worked like a pump pushing it with different strengths, you can adjust the flow of water and toss floating inside the bulb rings. The goal was to put as many rings on the two vertical pins plexiglass.
