Robot | Sparkling Mike | Wind Up
This fantastic tin toy robot packs a couple of surprises! Wind him up and sparks project from Mike's all-tin body as we walks. Sparkling Mike is a reproduction of the classic Japanese original - featuring an antenna on his head and an "on-off" switch on his space backpack that 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.
