This is a rad 1980s robot fan called "Robo the Fan" from Robeson Industries, ©1986! And he works!!! The fan runs on either high or low speed and can oscillate or be stationary. There is also a switch that can turn on his eyes to a glowing red light! His head and arms are also adjustable manually. This guy is awesome!!! He measures about 13" tall by 9" wide by about 8" deep. His plastic has some minor scratching and wear and he's missing one small, round gray adornment on the front (see photo). He does have a slight smoky smell, but I haven't cleaned him at all so that may be eliminated with the right cleaners (or maybe not, I'm not sure). Sold "as is". This would be a great piece to display, add to a vintage toy collection or give as a unique gift to a child of the 1980s!

I normally try to ship the least expensive way possible. It is often difficult to set an accurate shipping price since it varies based on your location in the US. If the shipping costs end up being more than what you paid, I will cover the difference. If they end up being significantly less, I will refund some of the cost you paid for shipping!

When this item is purchased, 10% of the purchase price will go to The Sound of Hope - a non-profit which raises funds and awareness for orphans and vulnerable children around the world. Learn more about the organization at TheSoundOfHope.org.

Sorry, but I don't accept returns for a clothing item not fitting you correctly. I personally take the time to measure each item and list those measurements in the item description.
