Retro Wind-Up Robots


These are some of my favorite wind-up toys from days gone by. As a kid, I was fascinated by mechanical things and how they worked. Turns out I inherited that trait from my father. He gave me a number of interesting wind-up robots thinking I would take the apart to learn how they worked. Instead, I was more intrigued by winding them all up and watching them run all over the floor. Yes, for this kid, it was hours of great entertainment.

Toy Reproductions or Toy Originals

My own wind-up toy collection is not for the investment, but for my own enjoyment, but there are many people who look for the original version of the toys. Those that were manufactured during that era, not reproductions manufactured today. For some it’s the investment, for others it’s the fun of the hunt and acquisition. For you, the online auction houses, like eBay are great options for you. When you find what you are looking for, bid quickly and keep an eye on the bidding. You might find the perfect toy for your collection.
