Yoshiya KO Toy Robots

By | November 8, 2017

Yoshiya KO Sparky Robot ToyDuring the 1950's and 1960's post war era, Yoshiya was one of the major toy manufacturers in Japan. The company stayed in business until the 1970's. It was also known as Kobe Yoko Ltd. and produced several friction, wind-up, and battery powered mechanical toys during their run. Many of their robot toys are now popular with toy collectors. The company branded and trademarked their mechanical toys with their distinct "KO" mark. They manufactured a variation of the Forbidden Planet's Robby the Robot tin wind-up robots called Action Planet or Space Trooper as well as other wind-up toys such as Sparky Robot (pictured on the left side), Venus Robot, Space Dog, and Moon Explorer. Yoshiya toy robots in mint condition tend to resale at a very good price so they make a good investment if you want to expand your classic robot toy collection.
