London's best assorted peculiarities - tin toy shop My Robot Friends
Robots, religious iconography, pop art and general assorted peculiarities – East London shop My Robot Friend (just off Brick Lane) stocks London’s most extensive collection of carefully selected weirdness placed against a backbeat of blues, psychedelia and Rock & Roll.
The shop specialises in tin robots ranging from the late Forties to the Seventies as well as tin cars, wind-up animals and a selection of Mexican Dia de los Muertos crafts. Prices are very reasonable too, and the carefully put together shop display is a joy to browse. A delightful little shop – and not just for boys.
