Mount Pearl, Avalon Peninsula
Handmade doll house, needs some TLC, but in good used condition. Front panel
slides off to access two stories of rooms. Includes some plastic furniture.
Give this some new paint, and it would be a great plaything!

Three 1980's Tomy omnibot Robots with 2 trays and 3 remotes. These are vintage
Robots and almost 40 years old. they were used as displays and not toys.
All 3 were used as a robot display and did work when last tested. Have not be
tested or used in years and may need new 6 volt batteries (batteries only last
4 or 5 years before needing replacing anyway). Uses a 6 volt battery like some
emergency lighting systems use and usually not very expensive. One is a Robbie
Sr made in Japan. All in good condition except one has slight damage to a back
battery door (see photo). Only 1 charger but it's really a standard 6 volt
400ma adaptor that you can readily get or use this 1 charger to charge all 3.
These originally cost around $300 Canadian each or $200 US dollars when new and
can be controlled by a remote or even programmed by a front panel (cool stuff
in the 1980s). It's considered a very expensive toy or a low end real robot.
They can sell for around $150 or more each depending on condition and even the
trays sometimes sell for $50 each.
I would like to sell all 3 as a set for $195 which is $65 each or separately
for $90 each. A really cool conversation piece. they made several models but
the only model up from these are the Omnibot 2000 which sell for big money.
I always wanted a Tomy Omnibot from the first time I seen the Robot B-9 Robot
from Lost in Space or Robbie the Robot from Forbidden Planet because it was the
closest thing to the Movie or TV Robots that I could afford.
