Robot | Planet Robot | Robbie the Robot | Red | 20cm
This high quality tin toy robot is reminiscent of the iconic 1950's Robbie the Robot originally featured in the film Forbidden Planet. Featuring a wind-up action, this robot travels forward, then turns in sequence. This robot walks with sparkling action which is featured behind it’s red cello face shield. Presented in a reproduction of the original lithographed box, this is a retro classic for collectors and big kids alike!
Every Tin Toy in this 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.
