Originally they were intended only for royalty, and were much more elaborate. Some of them were life-sized! When interest in elaborate wind-up machine art started to wane, they became known as tin wind up toys and started to become mass produced in the 1800s. Wind-up toys lost popularity in the 1960's with the invention of the small, inexpensive Alkaline battery, which could power toys without a wind-up mechanism. Plastic wind-up toys came around 1977, when Japanese company Tomy made a walking robot with plastic gears and parts. The wind-up toy has a long and interesting past, and we sure are glad they're still around today! Who didn't love wind up toys as a kid?
