  • Another one of my personal favorites is this fabulous TN/Nomura/Baravelli Sonic Car Dodge Charger in 100% original condition and in the original box with insert foam blocks. The Sonic whistle has never been removed from it's plastic bag. Each blow of the whistle commands the car to perform a different function, forward, reverse, left and right and finally for the machine guns to propel out of the roof of the car with bright flashing muzzle fire! Unique and again, a large 15" long by 6" wide and 5" tall. There is slight oxidation on the brightwork trim of the car but overall is just stunning! Operates on 2 'D' cell and 1 9volt battery.

This is a reproduction of the original. The trademark on the box is R.M. This item has been in storage and is in new condition.
  • Here is a mint condition Smoking Robot tin battery toy from the Schylling Collectors Series.

It requires 2 'D' cell batteries for operation.

  • This is a rare Walt Disney World, Epcot Mission Space X-2 Experimental Exploration Spacecraft battery-operated toy that was only available at the theme park gift shop many years ago, and the toy is no longer produced. There are three buttons on the back of the toy that make sound as well as flashing red LED lights in the engines and leading edges of wings and fins. I tried to capture the colors but they are much more vivid in person. An extremely well-made toy that also features an opening cockpit and retractable rolling landing gear. I have a demonstrator to play with and three in their original boxes for sale. These are highly sought after by space toy collectors and Disneyana collectors alike.
  • Marx Pete the Parrot

    Marx Pete the ParrotThis Marx Pete the talking Parrot toy from the 1960's comes to you in nearly flawless, mint condition with the original box, hang tag and instruction sheet. This awesome battery-operated toy requires 3 D cell batteries and one 9 volt battery for the talking feature.This is one of the first battery operated toys to feature the use of transistors for operation. The voice recording mechanism utilizes the 9 volt battery. Pressing one of the buttons on the base allows you to record a special message. After the recording is completed, pressing the button again plays back your message and actuates Pete's beak, eyes and head movement to imply Pete speaking with your voice.These toys are almost never seen in this virtually unplayed with condition.

  • A wonderful Marusan, Japan Sunbeam Motorcycle with Sidecar battery-operated toy in excellent, fully working condition. The Sunbeam operates with two 'D' cell batteries inserted into the sidecar. The sidecar switch operates the headlight, red license plate, taillight and the front running light. Upon battery insertion and without operating the light switch, power is instantly available to the electric motor to power the bike. The bike operates by switch movement on the gas tank. First gear is slow speed, second gear for higher speed and neutral or 'off'. The front fork is steerable and can be positioned for straight or circular motoring direction.These were very sensitive and fragile toys and most became shelf displays due to mishandling. This toy has been thoroughly checked and adjusted for superior function. Truly a delight and a must have for motorcycle collectors and enthusiasts alike!
  • Remote Control Battery Operated College Jalopy, Linemar Toys from the 1950's. This beautiful all original toy works perfectly. It comes with the original box and has virtually no playwear.

All functions work perfectly. The box shows age wear but is quite displayable. It would be difficult to find a finer example of this toy!
  • Very nice Ha Ha Toys Thunder Robot in his original box is ready for action! Ha Ha Toys robots are known for having better quality gear systems than newer versions of this toy and are more sought after because of that. Batteries have been installed and the toy was hand tested for function and then promptly returned to the original packaging.Thunder Robot walks across the Earth with his antenna spinning, lighted eyes and raises his gun arms to fire his lasers. He works great and looks even greater when functioning! The brown color, from what I've been told is the most common color and this reissue is quite marvelous!
  • Ha Ha Toys recreation of the iconic Linemar Lantern Robot, mint in the box. The lantern robot has lighted eyes and a lighted lantern in his hand. Fill him with the white powder included and he 'puffs' out the powder while he walks and swings his lantern! Beautiful toy in new, unplayed with condition. The box was only opened to photograph the item.
