Ping Pong Match Clockwork Tin Toy from After Noah


There are some people it always proves difficult to pick gifts for – and Dads often top that list. This Ping Pong Match Toy from After Noah would make a great gift for Father's Day or any other present-worthy occasion that needs something a little bit different.

Traditional tin toys have great charm thanks to their iconic designs and ingenious simplicity. Wind the key and sit back to watch the two players hit the ball back and forth across the net. The clever mechanism makes the ball appear to float as the players compete furiously to outdo one another.

The toy is a very reasonable £16.50 and you can find it on the After Noah site here.
