Rover the Space Dog is a wind-up tin collectible space dog with eyes that roll, ears that flap, a tail that wags and a mouth that yaps as he waddles along. Most importantly, he comes with an on/off switch, too.

Designer Details From a market stall heritage (albeit in London’s trendiest setting in Notting Hill), Rob and Eri set up business in 1980 under the guise of Rex International, with a mission to travel the globe to find interesting and unusual things to bring back for their customers. After many trips to south East Asia, the underground car park they’d rented in Kentish Town (which flooded whenever it rained) became too small to store all their goods, and they moved to a warehouse where they continued to expand, selling home furnishings and artefacts from all over the world. In 2004, they created a design studio to manufacture their own product ranges, launching their dedicated online emporium Dotcomgiftshop in 2005, selling a gorgeous collection of vintage-inspired gifts, toys, interiors and homeware.
