Sparkling Mike The Robot  Robot growth chart by Oopsy Daisy

Our designer has taken over and we think he may be controlled by robots! You read that correctly, robots. He insisted that all of our choices be robots this month. We have robots for children and grown-up children both, so if you like robots, or are controlled by them, come in to get your own. We hope you enjoy our somewhat robotic choices. Please call us at 808-828-1822 to find out more information. Or even better, to see all of our favorites robotic and non-robotic gifts, come visit us at Kong Lung Trading.

Lucky Cat Piggy BankPatty Ewing at Kong Lung TradingPatty-Tron’s Pick:

These 12” x 42” growth charts are created on artists canvas with grommets placed in the four corners make them easy to hang. They come with color coordinated decorative covers that easily fit over the screw or nail you use. This product creates a great childhood keepsake and rolls up easily for safe storage. The growth chart can be wiped clean with a soft, dry or slightly damp cloth and should it wrinkle, the backside may be ironed on a low setting with light steam. A magic marker (not included) is a great way to mark dates or ages on the chart.

This particular growth chart (right) features a robot illustration by Max Grover.

Deborah CecilDeborah 2000’s Pick:

SParkling Mike the robotRemember the original 7” windup robot toys made in the 1950’s in Japan? They’re back. This version by Schylling Co. walks as sparks shoot through his chest. The on/off switch on his back pack controls the action. Box for Sparkling MikeGreat classic boxy design from which many other robots were born. The walking mechanism on Sparkling Mike is very unique and referred to as the “pizza cutter mechanism”, whereby each foot has a wheel attached to a shaft that moves inside the foot enabling Mike to walk. An ingenious design which causes Mike to skate rather than walk.

Skate like Sparkling Mike to Kong Lung Trading and pick up your own for $28.00.
