Santa, ringer of the Apocalypse?

santa-robot-toypostWhat young child wouldn’t be thrill to find this charming toy under the tree on Christmas morning? The “Santa-Bearer-of-Doom-and-Destruction” or as it’s listed in the catalogue: “Father Christmas Robot,” can be ordered from Toy Post.

creepy-santa-robot-toypost-co-ukTo be fair, this toy is listed for adult collecters only. It was made using traditional methods for tin plating, and does not meet current child safety regulations, sorry kids.

Toy post is actually a very cool UK based  shop that  specializes in old-fashioned and traditional toys and games.  They have a fabulous selection of wooden and old tin plate and metal toys too. But this guy…he  definitely tops the freaky list!
