Created by the Schylling Collector Series, Roberta the Wind-Up Mechanical Woman will be a fun addition to any collection. With her fun pink and green paint and intricate design.  The Shylling Collector Series tin toys are inspired by the tin toys of the past. They are a memory of what toys used to be. These unique artifacts are made today using the same time-honoured techniques and processes that were employed by the toy makers of a bygone era.  Each tin toy starts as a flat sheet of metal that is litho printed and then cut into its many separate pieces. The pieces are collected and carried in baskets to the first stamping machine. Each small piece is picked up, positioned, punched and passed on to the next stamping machine worker. After many such steps all the pieces are eventually formed and the meticulous hand assembly can begin. Some minor blemishes do sometimes occur during this process which is considered normal.(adds to the vintage look) Because this is such a labor intensive process it is easy to see why tin toy manufacturing was abandoned when plastic injection molding was developed. Now tin toys are sought after by collectors around the world.  Most tin toys are not really toys at all. They are intended for adult collectors, and are not necessarily designed to comply with Toy Safety Legislation. As a responsible seller, our intention is to display and sell our tin toys primarily as collector items. Tin toys often contain small parts and sharp edges that can pose hazards to children. We urge buyers to be attentive at all times, in the interest of child safety.This collectible tin toy is recommended for ages 8 and above. Dimensions: Approx. 8 high
