Clockwork tin toy wind up drum playing robot

by Marius Roborocks

Vintage style handmade tin robot.

Can be wound up with provided key to make it walk and play the drum.

Good collector piece.

Reminiscent of toys from a bygone era.


I love wind up tin toys like this. It looks good and is good for photography work as well as video work.

Only problem is with the feet of this robot. They have these long metal pieces on the inside, I suppose for better balance or something. However, sometimes while the robot is doing its walking cycle, two of these metal pieces on opposing feet might collide and then stop the robot dead in its tracks.

I solved this problem by carefully bending them around to the soles of the feet first, and then very carefully bending them back, causing them to be on a slightly different level each than they used to be. Now the robot walks much better without getting stuck.

All in all, a very cute product.
