Our Tin Wind up Robots take to the streets in Belgrade, Yugoslavia.
Take 3 minutes to view this music video to see how one of our international customers envisioned several of our Tin Wind Up Robots. He wrote, “I really appreciate your tin toys. I used a few of your wind-up robots in a music video for a new band. Please feel free to share. Here’ s the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=52MRmVb_7jg P.F.
One hundred years ago this month, April 14, 1912, the unsinkable RMS Titanic steamship slammed into an iceberg, and sank into the ocean. Some 2000 voyagers were lost in the disaster. Tin Man Tin Toys, LLC, is proud to offer a tin replica of that fabulous 4-stack oceanliner. In fact, our tin toy model is powered by steam, generated in its own little boiler. See it now in the “Trains Boats and Busses” category. You will want one for your collection.
Tin Toys – The Tradition Lives On
Tin toy collecting has continued to be an exciting tradition thoughout history. Beginning as early as the 1800′s, many tinplate toys came from German companies. Some of those notable companies included Bing (1863), Fleischman (1887), Lehmann (1881), Gunthermann (1880) and Marklin (1859). These companies developed and set the high standards for the German tinplate industry. Later, as the interest in tin toys continued, other German manufacturers such as Arnold (1906), Tipp & Company (1912), Schuco (1912) and Levy (1920) continued to carry on the tin toys tradition.
