Miniature folding binoculars! Do you remember owning a set as a kid? I know I do.


The Spy-Tech Binoculars with Spy Accessories set is a toy produced by Tyco Industries for the US, UK, and other markets worldwide in 1990.

This is a collapsible, multi-purpose surveillance and survival tool containing high-powered Tyco binoculars, magnifying lens, compass, and signal mirror gives young eyes extra range, meaning victory over enemy spies.

If you didn’t get them from Tyco’s popular Spy-Tech series in 1990, then you may have had them later in the 90s as the many copies flooded the market.

From the catalog… “A spy often has to see over obstacles and around corners—without being detected. He needs this SPY-TECH scope that features two precision and mirrors for optimum view. The binoculars fold conveniently for storage and carrying. A clip-on feature allows the binoculars to be held on a belt or pocket. Includes a special SPY-TECH Training Manual.”


  • See around corners, see over crowds and fences.
  • Compact, high-power binoculars
  • Precision Compass, Signal Mirror
  • State-of-the-art optics for long-range surveillance
  • Vinyl carrying case is included, along with a special SPY-TECH Training Manual

On the Spy-Tech series generally, Tyco marketing would write…

Children have always loved playing spy games with their friends and family. Until now, they’ve lacked the tools of the espionage trade to act out this natural play pattern.
Now, SPY-TECH™ has arrived from TYCO — a complete line of real working, high-tech spy equipment. Playing spy with friends and family is now more exciting and fun than ever before!
All items in the new SPY-TECH™ line actually function and have an authentic high-tech electronic look, which appeals to a broad range of ages and sophistication levels.

Each SPY-TECH™ item comes with its own 12-page Training Manual packed with sly spy game tricks and information. The manual covers a wide range of undercover topics—camouflage, tracking, tailing, surveillance, and more.
