We had a gentleman bring by this Tomy Atomic Arcade Pinball Machine, Toys were so cool back in the day. This takes big flashlight batteries, and has working pop bumpers and slingshots. Super cool, still working toy from 1979!


  1. Classic tomy. They made sooo much crazy electronic toys late 70's. Start 80's

  2. I just got one of these at an auction. It ran about as good as yours, until I took it apart and blew all the dust out. Then I use the q-tip and put a little bit of WD-40 on the gears. Now that baby sounds a lot quieter, although it's still noisy, and it dings with every hit! 😊

  3. to get the ball past the counter you have to push down the launcher with enough force so it pushes the ball through with one stroke. my IQ is as low as my mothers boobs and i still got it

  4. I had one of these as a kid in the early 80s. I think it had some kind of music or sound effects that could be heard over the motor that is audible in the video.

  5. I like it so much😍😍😍😍😍😍

  6. Where to buy these pinball machine? Sir

  7. I got this in '79 and I played them for hours. Tomy electronic games were terribly noisy (and drove my mom nuts) but were fun to play (Atomic Pinball, Blip, Digital Derby).

  8. Oh….that's neat. I think my best friend got one of these for Christmas one year when we were kids. It may have planted the seed that grew into my current pinball obsession. ^_^ Thanks for sharing.

  9. I had this brand new from a long gone Christmas. It looked like more fun than it actually

  10. I had this toy for about 4 year till I gave it away to St. Vincent de Paul. IT also had the bell sound effects.

  11. Had forgotten just how loud that thing was. Loved it to bits though, until it finally broke.

  12. Just got this for my son, the reset button turns automatically as you pull down. Unfortunately yours is faulty

  13. 😎I got this for Christmas one year😁🤪

  14. OMG, I have this!! Got it for Christmas as a kid. It’s sitting not 10 yards from me now in a “toy box”.
    I was an amazing pinball player in my day. So this was a cool thing to have at home when I couldn’t play the big machines.

  15. I had this amazing toy! Thanks for the look back. 🙂

  16. Me and my brother had a pinball game but it was one of those handheld games. And it had the sounds of a pinball machine and it talked. It came out in the late 80's. I don't remember the name or what company it came from. I don't know if we got it for Christmas or whenever our mom or our sister had the money. Maybe we got it out of our mom's tax money. My sister used to work at a Venture at the time we got this game. It was really cool.

  17. I loved this thing as a kid. It seems like mind made bell noises instead of sounding like a garbage truck, though.

  18. What's funny is I bought this from a yard sale 2 years ago, and I was about to take it apart to see if I could stop the noise that you are reporting is related to the power switch. It makes sense now!🤣🤣🤣

  19. This is how i learned there was no Santa Clause.
    Heard noises in the living room,walked down the
    hallway and peaked through the door and saw my
    dad playing this lol.

  20. I had one of these…loved it! Wish I could find one!

  21. Why on earth is it so loud? What's making all the noise?

  22. Super cool toy indeed, much more sophisticated than the one I had as a kid in the mid 70s. Sweet memories that explain, I guess, why we enjoy so much this channel

  23. I'm a huge fan of the Coleco tabletop mini arcades that came out in the early 1980s and the Tiger handheld electronic handheld games as well

  24. It’s enough to make you wish you were 8 years old again. Great pinnie for little folks.

  25. I have one and it must be a later one as it's very quiet and only uses 4 d cell batteries not 5.
