Young Scientist Anatomy Set Bluebird Toys 1996 Hirst sculpture

Not only is this an awesome Young Scientist Anatomy Set – like almost everything else these days it’s also a work of art! You don’t have to believe me… ask Damien Hirst

This classic toy was the template or inspiration for Hirst’s six ton sculpture and is available right now from our eBay listings

The phrase Toy Art is often reduced to Tart in Hirst’s case but to be fair this is actually quite a striking piece. ‘Hymn’ is a 20 foot painted bronze sculpture, that weighs over six tons. Originally inspired by an anatomical model belonging to Hirst’s son, Connor, which the artist describes as: “just so accurate, it was like a chemistry set, and I loved it that it was a toy … similar to a medical thing, but much happier, friendlier, more colourful and bright.”

Produced by Bluebird Toys in 1996

A commercial sculptor in Hertford Mr Emms, made the original model for the toymakers Bluebird, which sold the rights to Humbrol. He said: “It is an exact copy, completely and utterly exact – even the hair, the eyebrows.”

Mr Emms, who has designed toys for Disney and created Thunderbirds models, was paid less than £2,000 for the model on which the 10in high anatomy set was based

This boxed set is available from our eBay listings complete and in excellent used undamaged condition with no play wear or other marks. It is missing the body facts book that originally came with it. The box has slight storage wear but this does not detract from this very collectible vintage item

The classic Road Warrior Mad Max as we originally knew him crafted as a highly detailed six inch action figure

This figure is from Series 1 released in 2000. Mad is modelling here in front of a comedy Ghost Busters HQ wall instead of the usual endless bleak highway

At least once in every lifetime Mel Gibson stars in a classic film. N2 Toys created this excellent Mad Max 6″ action figure based on the 2nd movie

Mel was only 21 when he became part of Sci Fi history and apparently his busted face got him the role after a bar fight

This collectable item (and Ghost Busters wall) was sold for £15 in 2014 from our eBay listings in excellent used condition with no damage, play wear, weapons or accessories

Bump-and-Go Patrol Motorcycle Super Series vintage 70s toy

We love coming across vintage toys and this is an excellent retro item currently available from our eBay listings.  A super cute battery operated 1970’s Patrol bike with lovely light and sound effects – the rider whistles a pretty melody while bumping-and-going along as lights spin and flash. It says “Patrol Superior” on the bike – but he’s not looking a lot like any officer of the law I’ve ever seen … maybe there’s some other type of patrol …

Excellent lightly used fully working “bump-and-go” plastic motorcycle with no damage. The ariel has bent from being in the box for such a long time but the red light on tip remains fully functional.

Colourful bump-and-go bike can also be run standing still with wheel cover on (as in pictures and video)

Light, sound and functions:
sound of an engine starting
horn honking
rider says GO!
bike revs up
rider whistles enchanting melody as he rides along

flashing light on the front and rear and ariel tip
(rear wheel arches reflect light)
bike will change direction when its path is blocked

We have a video of him working on YouTube including sections in slow motion

Patrol High Lighting Function with the Music Super Series
You are essential to own the all of these, it can bring you the endless fun!
Ages 3 and up
HANDA with H logo and No920 Made in China can be seen on battery cover

We believe this dates to the mid 70’s but we are always very happy to be corrected 😉
