1950s Vintage Robot Toys

By | December 1, 2018

Mint Robby Robot wind up toyDuring the 1950's, the majority of battery operated motorized wind-up tin robot toys were manufactured outside of the United States by many Japanese toy companies.  When these tin toys were exported to the United States, they attracted a lot of interest from American children.  Because they were able to cheaply mass produce robot toys for Americans, the Japanese toy industry boomed during the 1950's. Many of these tin robots were attached to a wired remote control battery pack that kids can control while others were clockwork tin robot toys that kids would wind up so the little mechanical character would walk or spin to the delight of kids.  Many had moving parts or blinking lights that would make them more exciting for children.  This was an introduction to technology for kids for that era.  If you feel nostalgic for the Fifties, you can now shop for your own vintage Fifties robot toys on sale.
