I was super excited when I heard about TinToyArcade, I mean who doesn’t love old school toys!

Trouble was one of my favorite games to play as a kid, there is no better stress relief than poppin’ that little bubble in the middle and trying to get all your colors back to the finish line!  My husband and I had fun playing this last week!

The Classic game of Trouble is as you remember it in clear plastic with the popping die dome.  Be the first player to move all four of your pegs around the game board into finish and you win!


Does anyone remember these awesome Military Patrol Playsets?  I totally forgot this kind of thing existed and when I saw it on TinToyArcade I knew my husband would love it!  The little tank attaches onto the metal board and it moves around it after you wind it up, it’s really neat how it works and if you haven’t seen one of these before you should check it out!

Just wind up the tank and watch it twist and turn through the colorful European Theatre, going under the tunnel and around castles. This extra large set uses the original molds and litho prints from Japanese car sets of the 1950’s and 1960’s. This retro tin Miliary Patrol Set was originally produced by Modern Toys Masudaya of Japan. A very special gift for a classic toy or tin toy collector!


Mr Robot.  I haven’t heard of him before, but who doesn’t love robots, they are cool.  Very cool.


He isn’t your ordinary robot either, when you wind him up he walks, lights up and becomes your friend.  I love robots, call it an obsession but I find them fascinating!

Mr Robot: the Mechanical Brain has a hidden power cell in his head! A clever Brain Battery and a Wind Up engine actually work together: he walks while red and white lights blink in his hands. He has a high quality all-tin silver body with red details and an adjustable antenna. This Collector’s Robot comes in a beautiful box just like the 1950’s original, including the instructions.


Anyone remember the Looping Plane? You wind it up and it does loops around the floor, my son loves this, although he needs help winding it up but it’s lots and lots of fun and a great collectors item!
