Retro robots are great at anytime of the year, but as Christmas nears it gives us an excuse to buy something like these Wooden Stacking Robots, whether for a child or as an early present to ourselves.
Each box contains nine wooden robots, painted red, yellow, blue, green and one in black. The idea is to stack them up in different figurations, following examples provided or making up your own displays. The idea is based on a classic 1930s toy Bill Ding Balancing Clowns.
A set of robots costs £14 from Scarlet and Jones.
