As seen in this 1979 Montgomery Ward Christmas Specials catalog:

I have this toy in my collection. Embossed on the back:

ENCO INDUSTRIES, INC.

JERICHO, N.Y.  11753

MADE IN HONG KONG

I do not have the box, so I'm hoping the "Action Robot" name given by the catalog description is accurate. Anyone have the box?

The BIN catalog listing:

I absolutely love children's activity robots; they have a charm all their own, this is no exception, nice get Kat!

I'm not sure what additional details are to be had.

We have a name, an initial date, a manufacturer, country of manufacture, and a box that describes it's functions.

I've seen this toy a couple times in thrift shops. Usually missing one or both hands and always in the blue body color, not the black like shown on the box.
