Tomy Water Wonderland Christmas Magic Vintage Toy

Words & Images - James Ross

This vintage TOMY Water Wonderworld game was one of those simple toys that got hours of play time when I was a child. Bought for me at some point in the late eigities, the Christmas Magic edition saw you bouncing santas off snowmen and landing them in sleighs and basket. For those who grew up in a cave, the concept behind these toys is a water filled enclosure which circulates the water due to a change in pressure when a button is pushed. This Chinese manufactured toy (Part Ref No.7013) was designed for children of age 3+, and my version is still in working condition complete with a tatty box.

The description on the box reads as follows: "To enjoy endless hours of Water Wonderland fun simply fill with tap water and push the stopper firmly into place. We recommend you change the water every two weeks. PLAYTIME KITTENS, BEDTIME BUNNIES, PLAYFUL PENGUINS and TUMBLING TEDDIES are other fun favourites in the Tomy Wter Wonderland range."

My sister had the yellow tumbing teddies version which seems to have disappeared from our childhood hoard, if it turns up I'll be sure to add it to the website.
