The Nostalgic Attic: A nice little present from my wife...

29 September 2014

A nice little present from my wife...


So, we are currently in Paris (Montmartre specifically) enjoying a quick weekend away for our wedding anniversary. While strolling through a flea market yesterday, we spotted a store specialising in vintage toys; tin cars, Tonka toys, etc. On a shelf was a selection of these guys. They are nicely reproduced in the style of toys made in the 50's and 60's, and the clockwork mechanism is quite nice! When he gets going, the movement is lovely, with the eyes sparking up and all. I think I've found something new to collect!

Ah, he is a fine fellow, good one Deb. I must say he takes a good picture, he's look much more amenable when he's out and about, his portrait on the box makes him look rather fearsome, cutting a swathe of destruction thru some city street...

I love it! Did you give him a name? Can he be the Attic's mascot?

Wes, we both laughed when we spotted the destroyed streets on the artwork - he is way too pleasant a fellow to be going on that kind of killing spree...

I'd name him after one of the robots from Silent Running ! Dewey, Huey, Louie !

Well, Silent Running IS one of my favorites, so lets go with Dewey!
