Toy robots can bring out the little kid in everyone and fashion designer Paul Smith is no exception. Vintage examples – including a gigantic motorised rubber Godzilla and a plastic Smash martian, which was given away free in a 1970s promotion – are to be displayed in the Collector’s Cabinet at the Design Museum.

Paul Smith’s Robots are on show from 10 May to 11 August in the Design Museum’s Contemporary Design Gallery.
