Toy Robot Encyclopedia A to Z

This project is currently a work in progress. My aim is to create a useful resource for those wanting to learn more about toy robots, both old and new. I plan to gather data on a wide spectrum of robotic toys, both those that are considered collectible now and those that may in years to come. You may simply want to find the name or age of a robot you own, or re-discover the history of a toy you remember, or perhaps, like me, you just like looking at cool space toys. You are all welcome fellow roboteers! Enjoy.

Would you like to help ‘fill the gaps’ in this robot encyclopedia project? If you send me photographs of your toy robots, I’ll endeavour to add them into the database. If you’d like, I can also add your name and a link. Thanks in advance. 😀
