"Start em young"

I don't remember this toy from the '50s. Do you think the operators backed this project to get the next generation of punters interested from a very young age? Made in England and still with its original box, instructions etc. Almost worth having!

I used to have one of those a few years back without the box.
They pop up every couple of years and go for about £15.

Good to see it, pity they don't do anything other than spin haphazardly.

Another toy inspired by a trade stim on ebay today, also with original box.

Thought it was worth adding the toy catcher machine on eBay today that sold for a solid £124. I am sure I have seen one if these before, but could not trace. Certainly looks well made but resisted the temptation.

This looks far too well engineered for just a toy surely!?

Hello,
I bought the above machine mainly out of curiosity. When I first saw it I thought it was a toy one, but after asking the vendor for a shot of the inside I was not so sure so set about some research to find out more about it. After many hours I came up with nothing. Looking again at the mechanism I thought the tooling required to make it was a bit over the top for a toy, so must have been made for a commercial use (pub/club etc), therefore there must be more out there somewhere. If so, if anyone has any information to share I would love to hear it. When I receive the machine and give it the once over if I find out more I will post it on here.
Regards JRA.

Well done, there were a few I am sure with their finger on the button. It certainly looks well made with more metal than plastic and well engineered mechanical parts. Of course it may be a type of trade stimulator, but I wonder if likely to be used in a commercial environment as the cash gathering area is very small being low down and there is no lock, only a screw holding on the rear door. I also wondered what the slot was on the left side from the front which appears to maybe for another lever, but no indication on the inside.

Oh forgot, for those not seeing the listing, the size is apparently 12inches high by 6 inches.

I am still convinced I have seen one before but cannot track a picture yet, so would be good to get feedback once you get it. !!THUMBSX2!!

Not the same I know, but I thought Stuart Dale's remarkable handy work deserved an outing at this stage !!THUMBSX2!!
