Bills Retro Robots are made out of the most interesting vintage objects we can find. We especially look for those that show patina and tell a story. While we clean our items we don’t try to make them shiny. We think the patina is part of the fun. So, expect some scratches, dings and rust. If you want new and shiny, go to Walmart.

Bill’s Retro Robots are designed to appeal to adults and children but they are not toys. They are pieces of art. We do not suggest giving them to children under 8.

Each robot is a one-of-a-kind signed and numbered art piece.
