An incredibly rare machine, the Dipsy Doodle was released in the 1970s by Williams Electronics. Only a few hundred were made, with the result that the Dipsy Doodle is now highly valued as a collector’s item. Originally manufactured in 1970, the Games Room Company has sympathetically restored this machine back to the highest standard.
The Dipsy Doodle’s simple yet enjoyable playing field eschews a lot of the bells and whistles outfitted on most modern pinballs. Instead, the machine’s playfield represents something of a return to basics, allowing players to enjoy the styling and snazzy colours on the Dipsy Doodle.
Its artwork is reminiscent of the era, with the cartoonish young characters adorning the machine leaping and dancing in charmingly wacky poses. With its cheerful outlook and sunny theme, this classic pinball table is fun for all the family.
In 1943, Harry Williams founded Williams Manufacturing Company at 161 West Huron Street in Chicago, Illinois.
A Stanford engineering graduate, Williams devised the “tilt” mechanism for pinball machines and their early models often included innovative features and pinball firsts, such as mechanical reel scoring and the "add-a-ball" feature for locations that didn't allow game replays. By 1967, pinball was in the middle of its so-called "golden age", and the number of pinball units sold began to increase dramatically.
The company went on to produce the legendary Addams Family pinball table, which remains one of the world’s most sought after machines and sold over 20,000 units in its time, setting an enviable record that still stands to this day.
