Common types of toys to repair are train sets, vintage toy guns, vintage dolls, toy-grade radio controlled vehicles and arcade games. Arcade games include video games, pinball machines, and Skee-Ball machines. Dolls range from porcelain figures to plastic talking dolls. There are also robots and space toys.
While some toys are wind-up, other toys are battery operated. Some items, such as toy trains, have choices of wind-up or electrical. Repairs fix moving and missing parts. Power-operated toys lose power; plastic items may break and parts for rolling toys go missing.
