1950's VINTAGE IDEAL ROBERT THE ROBOT NO. 4049 WITH TATTERED/TORN ORIGINAL BOX:
$58

THIS IS A ROBERT THE ROBOT FROM THE 1950'S IN A TATERED ORIGINAL BOX. BOX IS MISSING MOST OF ONE END AND IS NOT IN COLLECTOR CONDITION . ROBERT THE ROBOT'S BODY SEEMS TO BE IN EXCELLENT TO LIKE NEW CONDITION. WHEN YOU TURN THE CONTROL HANDLE (WITH TRIGGER) THE ROBOT MOVES BACK AND FORTH AND THE ARMS MOVE. THE REAR (ON BODY) HANDLE DOES NOT SEEM TO BE ATTACHED TO ANYTHING AND HANGS OUT LOOSE. THE ON OFF KNOB IN THE FRONT JUST ROTATES AROUND WITHOUT ANY STIFFNESS. WHEN THE ROBOT'S HEAD IS REMOVED, I SEE ONLY A RED BATTERY HOLDER IN THE BODY. LOOKS LIKE A D CELL SIZE. THERE IS IS NO BULB OR BULB HOLDING MECHANISM IN THE ROBOT'S HEAD. THE METAL SPRING CLIPS ON THE ARMS (FOR GRASPING THINGS) ARE BOTH THERE AND CLOSE TIGHTLY. I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT FIXING OR REPAIRING OR RESTORING ROBOT TOYS.  HOWEVER, IT SEEMS TO ME THAT THE CONDITION OF ROBERT THE ROBOT'S BODY HERE SUGGEST THAY A KNOWLEDGEABLE ROBOT COLLECTOR COULD POSSIBLY REPAIR HIM WITH THEIR KNOWLEDGE AND POSSIBLY REPLACEMENT PARTS. ALSO THE BODY PARTS ARE IN SUCH GOOD CONDITION THAT THEY COULD BE USED TO FIX OR REPAIR A ROBERT THE ROBOT IN LESSER SHAPE. I HAVE NOT POLISHED OR CLEANED THIS ROBOT EXCEPT FOR REMOVING THE DUST. THE METAL RIVETS THAT HOLD THE ROBOT TOGETHER HAVE RUST ON THEM. ALSO THE BOTTOM METAL PLATE. I KNOW THEY CAN BE CLEANED. SURELY THERE MUST BE SOME KNOWLEDGEABLE COLLECTOR THAT CAN USE THIS ROBERT, EVEN IF IT IS JUST FOR PARTS.  ROBERT IS ABOUT 8 & 1/2 INCHES HAND TO HAND, APPROXIMATELY 15 INCHES TALL. 6 BY 5 INCHES AT THE BASE. ORIGINAL TATTERED AND TORN BOX SAYS: IDEAL, ROBERT THE ROBOT, ARMS SWING BACK AND FORTH, EYES LIGHT UP HANDS GRASP OBJECTS, WITH EASY TO OPERATE REMOTE CONTROL.  FEATURING THE SENSATIONAL NEW PATENTED TALKING DEVICE, YOU STEER HIM TOO!,  IT'S A WONDERFUL TOY IT'S IDEAL,  IT'S FUN, YOU MAKE HIM WALK, YOU MAKE HIM TALK. NEW KIND OF FUN WITH IDEAL'S ROBERT THE ROBOT. THE MECHANICAL MAN. HE WALKS, HE TALKS, HE BACKS UP, TURN CRANK TO PLAY PATENTED TALKING DEVICE. EYES LIGHT UP, HANDS GRASP OBJECTS, REMOTE CONTROL, TO REPLACE BULB OR BATTERY, TWIST HEAD TO LEFT AND REMOVE..., TURN CRANK TO MAKE HIM WALK OR BACK UP. SQUEEZE TRIGGER TO MAKE HIM TURN RIGHT OR LEFT. 5 TIMES TOUGHER STYRON 475. MADE IN THE U.S.A. BY IDEAL TOY CORPORATION, HOLLIS 23 N.Y. BOTTOM OF BOX HAS NO 4049 PAT. PEND. TALKING DEVICE MFD. BY TED DUNCAN, INC. BOX BOTTOM SAYS: COLOR-PAK THEN IN A TRIANGLE: GRAND-CITY CONTAINER CORP, NORTH BERGEN NEW JERSEY. HE MAYBE BE NOT ALL FUNCTIONING THAT WELL, BUT HE DESERVES A SECOND CHANCE.
