Plays the metal drum: both arms raise up and down as it walks
The original Musical Drummer Robot was produced by Nomura (Japan) in 1956. It was battery powered via an external wired battery box. The square battery box was in the shape of a robot head with pushable red buttons for eyes to control the robot. They also featured light up eyes and a flashing small light on its chest panel. Original Nomura versions of the Musical Drummer Robot are extremely rare to find.
I’ve yet to find the name of the manufacturer of the Chinese reproduction as pictured. The only clue is the model code TR2021 found on the box.
The Little Drumming Robot – Retro Musical Windup Toy
This retro musical drummer robot toy is closely based on the 1956 Nomura R57 drumming robot. This particular toy robot has a spring windup mechanism, beautifully detailed lithographic designs replicating the original and is considerably more affordable than the 1950s Nomura robot! 🙂
The tinplate robot stands nearly 9 inches tall. He isn’t as little as the video title might suggest but he certainly has bigger brothers on the shelf.
