Mexican plastic - it's fantastic !

Robot Bank, Vinilos Romay S.A.,
Mexico, 1970's ? 

with fake screws molded in the plastic !

It's Wattoo Wattoo !

Wattoo Wattoo Superbird, Ceji-Lang, 1978, France

This is another one of my toys linked to childhood memories... Wattoo-Wattoo was a cartoon I loved as a child. Little birds from another planet bringing ecology to very stupid geese that were polluting all the time... 

Going to multiply ?
They have a bouncy string to make'em fly !

They have a squeezy whistle in the belly !

Astronaute, JEM RF, France, 1970's (?)

Daiichi Bank robot (?), Japan, 1970's ?

This one will join my unusual robot shelf...
