Earthquake Tower

From Remco. It was released in 1976, following the success of the 1974 movies The Towering Inferno and Earthquake. Kids were meant to destroy the skyscraper and then rescue its occupants using the helicopter, firetruck, and team of plastic rescue workers that came with the toy.

"Turn a real disaster into hours of imaginative, exciting play... comes with a disaster sound effect record to help add exciting sound to the play."

I'm sure that would go down a storm these days!

Nonsense! It would be immensely popular. Imagine two towers, two planes, two firetrucks, and a bunch of plastic figurines to figure firefighters, paramedics, office workers, police officers, etc. Hours of fun for kids of all ages!

I’d like to think that some of the kids who played with this went on to become successful architects and structural engineers.
