Randy's Toy Shop, Noblesville, IN

 

Randy's Toy Shop makes thousands of parts out of most materials to bring your tin toys back to their original condition, whether it be a simple lariat or arm for a Marx Cowboy (starting at $15.00) to a custom made leg for your rarest treasure, we can help. Our pressed tin parts are patterned exactly from the originals including tab placement, metal thickness and colors. We also repair mechanisms on all types of toys from battery ops to automatons. These repairs start at $45.00 for most wind-ups and battery ops. We also make a variety of plastic parts such as domes, antennas, windshields and other missing accessories. If you are not sure, give us a call. We probably make it, or can.

We always give an exact estimate in writing and wait for your approval before starting any work. For more information contact us.

We have "brought back to life" over 10,000 old toys and their boxes coming up on our 20th year of restoration!

This is a 1930's Marx Amos and Andy Fresh Air Taxi in its original condition.  Notice the missing figures, windshield and hood ornament (commonly missing due to how fragile it is) and the damage to the wheels. This is Mark, painting the replacement figures - custom fabricated by Randy's Toy Shop!  We make all the loose parts for this, as well as a large selection of almost every arm, leg & accessory on all figural toys, tin cars, rockets, robots etc.
