I've never seen Twinkletoes.
It's a lot like 'Derby Day', in both play and cabinet style.

It has been posted on this thread twice before, but I wonder if the latest interest may relate to the ludicrous offer someone has made for one £1250 on the new Elephant site :HaHa:


If it were genuine and I owned one, I would be throwing it in the back of my car for a trip to Cambridge :cool:

Horses for courses. It's a hard machine to find if you want one. I guess there may be sentimental reasons why you may want that particular machine, either because you remember playing it as a child on family holidays or many other reasons. If money is not the relevant factor and you want to coax one out of the woodwork, throwing a juicy figure out there is the way.

We all know that ludicrous offers for machines don't seem to reliably shake them out of the woodwork :woops:

I own the Twinkletoes machine in the latest video, It is the actual machine that I played on aged 12 in our local arcade many moons ago, and as Moonriver said , it is for those sentimental reasons that No amount of Cash would tempt me to sell, I am a collector and why would I want to sell something I may never possibly see again however much is offered

I hope it gives you more pleasure ....

I never believe in such a thing as no money can buy anything as no slot machine has a limit, but I agree we probably all have a few machines we would have to be pushed seriously hard to sell......

I am trying to workout which one I want to turn into my coffin

Mind you I have sold a few machines where people have chucked a high number at me, but I would never put out an advert stating what I would pay. One ploy that could be used by crafty sellers at the Elephant is to get a mate to stick a wanted advert at a crazy price on the site and then list one for sale, would set the tone for value they would hope higher offers..

I completely understand that - you can not put a price on items that have sentimental value.
