Robot | Antenna | Mechanical Walking Space Man
This fantastic tin toy robot packs a surprise! A reproduction of a famous Yoshiya Japanese Robot from the 1960's featuring stunning retro design and colours! Wind him up and the robot walks while raising and lowering his arms - all while his sweet little antenna spins. An "on-off" switch mounted on his chest panel controls his motion . Presented in a reproduction of the original lithographed box, this is a retro classic for collectors and big kids alike!
Every Tin Toy in our range begins its life as a flat sheet of metal, which is printed and then formed into the shape before being hand assembled to create a single finished toy. Being a very labour-intensive process, across history most traditional toy makers around the world moved away from tin toy production, thus leaving only a handful of producers that still make them today. People from around the world seek tin toys, either as serious collectors or merely to cherish the memories of their childhood and share with others.
