Destination: Robots – 1987family icon

Enjoy some nostalgia from Cake Industries' personal collection of childhood robots.

A walk back in time to when robots were delivering cookies, dancing, and running into walls. The wave of robot-mania in the 1980s was inescapable, with almost every household owning at least some kind of robot or robot toy. Unfortunately, domestic toy technology wasn't quite up to the task, but that didn't stop us worshipping them just the same.
