Halacha - wind up toys
Submitted by chaim  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

It is permitted. Even thought the Chaye Adam forbids winding a watch on Shabbos because of make b'patish, but there you would ideally like the watch to run forever, where as the toy only serves its purpose by unwinding and stopping. The transient nature of the winding makes it intrinsically not make b'patish.
