If you’re looking for the perfect nostalgic gift from the 80s and 90s, a vintage Tyco Mini Hopper is my pick! They’re great collectors items and are still fairly affordable.

The Spy Tech Fingerprint Kit is a kids toy produced by Tyco Toys, and released in the US, UK, and other countries worldwide in 1990.

Part of a wider Spy-Tech set of toys, the Fingerprint Kit does what it says on the box!

  • Locate prints, dust for prints, record prints.
  • Everything needed to find and identify fingerprints.

The kit contains the same items “real spies use for fingerprinting” such as rubber gloves, magnifying glass, dusting powder, brush, ink pad, tape dispenser for lifting and storing prints, and storage file cards. Also includes a special SPY-TECH Training Manual!

As per the Spy Tech page in the 1990 Tyco Catalog…

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 ele

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.
