New robot push toy in painted wood
This 6″ robot push toy is available in the market. The base and segmented body are painted wood. Body parts are connected with elastic cords. Pressing a plunger on the bottom of the base causes the cords to loosen and the body tilt in the direction the plunger is pushed. The red and white paint on this example fluoresced brightly under long wave black light. We do not know of any old examples like this that were made.
