Monster Car

This tin toy was made in Japan in 1986 by the Yone Company. Also known as the Mechanical Groolies Car (not exactly sure what a Groolie is, but I don't think I would fancy a lift from this lot!

The mechanism is fun, although not all that effective. When you wind it up and set it going on a table top, the bonnet flaps up and down. Underneath is a flat piece of metal, which moves with the bonnet. Very slowly this up and down motion interacts with the table top and causes the car to go forwards.

ITEMS IN THE TOY COLLECTION ARE NOT FOR SALE
