Maker: SH/ Horikawa

 JAPAN circa 1968

The Horikawa family of battery operated robots and astronauts began around 1958 but grew extensively during the mid-sixties. It is quite hard to pinpoint exactly why Horikawa continued to thrive,while others disappeared.....

The Dino Robot.

Like virtually all Horikawa robots and astronauts this one has a big surprise...a hidden dinosaur face inside it's head!

The box features an angry dino-robot with bad attitude ready to destroy everything in it's path!!

...A precious reminder of the Godzilla-esque period..
