Maria Metropolis Electra Robot Tin Toy Windup St. John Toys
Electra Robot. Rare import version by "St. John" Toys. Electra stands 5 1/2" tall and looks incredibly like a cross between The Jetsons "Rosie the Robot" and Maria from the movie "Metropolis". Electra sports an apron, carries a lightening bolt in her hand, has springy curlers, and 2 antennas. She walks forward via moving struts under her feet often referred to as "pin walking action", and also features mechanical swaying arms, and on/off switch on her waist. Very nice gift box with colorful retro style graphics. Robot is guaranteed new direct from the factory and can sometimes have minor scuffs due to the original method of hand production originally used in the 1950's.
