Does anyone remember these toys that came out in the early-90s? Basically kids' versions of spy equipment, they had stuff like a fingerprint kit, long-range microphone, and a little camera you could hide in a Mike & Ike's box. Out of these, my favorite item was a pair of sunglasses that let you see what was behind you.

I still remember the end of the commercial. It went like this:

Mom: They have Spy Tech!
Dad: Are they on to us?!
Announcer: Spy Tech, high-tech equipment that works. Each sold separately.

I'd be interested to see if anyone had, or at least remembers, Spy Tech.

        I remember the ads, definitely. At school, whenever the intercom made funny clicking noises, we used to say, "They have Spy Tech!"

              [Guy with glasses]: They Have Spy Tech!
              [Vendor]: THEY KNOWES!

              Now I'd Rofl to that. However I didn't get that back then. Yes I'm talking about a commercial for ST. I allways wanted that watch with the Cryptic messages. so I could do my encryptions.
