Mr Money – The Greedy Tomy Robot Money Bank

Introducing Mr Money. The greedy robot bank from Tomy (money box, piggy bank, money bank robot). This cute, loveable character is a great toy robot with a cheeky grin and coin chomping action. I’ve owned the little fella’ from when I was young and it sparked a life long passion for vintage toy robots.

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!
