Vertibird was a helicopter which would fly around in a circle. It was tethered to a plastic arm which moved around with the helicopter. You could fly the Vertibird up and down, forwards and backwards and hover.
There were little men and cars which you could pick up and put down with the hook beneath the Vertibird. I had great fun with the Vertibird, but it was quite fragile and had to be taken back to the shop a few times to be replaced. I recently bought an updated version of the Vertibird, but it was nowhere near as good as the original Vertibird!
