Ganbare! Robocon! Wind Up Toy





My in-laws had just sold off their house to source for another unit of close proximity to where I'm staying. So nice of them having the thought of staying close together and I'm grateful that we are willing to come to our aid in taking care of my three rascals. Their new house ain't ready for the moment and so my house is now the main camp site for all. Lol...

I was helping my wife to clean her room at her old house when we found this adorable wind-up SD Robocon. It was a gift from me during our courtship and it kind of brought back those pleasant sweet moments. As a memoir of the time we had shared at her old house, I took some pics of SD Robocon below her block.

For those find Robocon unfamiliar, he's actually a helpful and positive never-say-die robot on Japan kids' television programme in 1974 with an encore in the 90's.

man, this robot has an unbelievable sentimental value for u & is still intact !!! uhmmm the series is totally unknown for me, but seems pretty funny & the figure, well, i think i saw one of them a while ago but i didn’t know his name at that time... the clockwork mechanism makes it enjoyable & the outdoors shots giv him a sense of realism =D

I remember this show when I was a kid. It was called "siu lo bo"...in cantonese. Of course I watched the encores not the original in 1974. haha

I don't remember much about it, but just that it was always afraid of cockroachs. LOL
