Flomo is a Taiwanese company best known for its range of unique pencil cases with padded vinyl covers. As well as the blue version (pictured), I’ve also seen grey, black, red, green and even pink versions of the robot pencil case; each one with slightly cover artwork and designs. I particularly like the headphones and dual antennae. 🙂

My Toy Robot Collection // 2018 UPDATE

Here’s an updated video of the toy robots that are currently in my collection. I have a mixture of both old vintage robots as well as modern tin plate reproductions. This is mainly because original tin toy robots from the golden era go for ridiculously high amounts of money. Most ordinary folks, me included, just cannot justify spending that much! Early on in my collecting journey I came to the conclusion that I’d rather have several reproductions that work, rather than one rusty shelf queen that doesn’t. It’s the magic of these toy robots coming alive and moving that is the fun part!
