I was poking around a junk shop that I visit from time
to time and I saw a toy. It didn't really strike me as
that interesting when I saw it but I've been wondering
about it since I left the place this morning. The
thing was mostly red plastic with a cardboard bottom. It
had a two-prong AC cord and a four prong "old fashioned"
telephone jack. It had two big buttons and a spool of
paper tape mounted on the front. The tape was about 1/4
inch wide. I call it a toy because it had that sort of
feel about it. It was not clearly labeled as such. It
was also styled in a way that suggested late 1960s to me.
The whole thing was the size of a small shoe box. I
can't find anything like it in google searches. I wonder
if it might have some early modem like device in it. Does
this description "ring a bell" with anyone?
