Wind Up Tin Toy, Musical Man on The Flying Trapeze.

The first mechanical toys were big and mystical, usually shown in fairs in Europe. These toys were hand-built by crafters and usually powered by pneumatic power, wind or water. They have been so impressive and realistic that the church was quick to label them "instruments of the devil".

Real-size animated statues have been used in ceremonies by Ancient Greeks.

About the same time, Ctesibius made a singing blackbird that drank water and moved.
