Robot Archaeology: Toy Robots #Robots #MakeRobotFriend

In the Robot Archaeology series, we’ve covered a fair number of toy robots and brought one, the Nintendo R.O.B. back to being usable again. But have we covered all toy robots?

A quick visit to http://www.theoldrobots.com/ tells me, emphatically, no way!

Companies have pumped out toy robots for decades in all shapes and sizes.

The sites – theoldrobots.net, theoldrobots.org and theoldrobots.com all have lists of robots not documented elsewhere.

If you are researching a particular toy robot, this is the site you should check first.

And if you are looking for videos of the old robots, the accompanying Youtube channel oldrobots has vids too.

What is your favorite toy robot? Post it in the comments so we can all check it out!
