packing, or playing?

karaoke Jin

Look what I found while I was packing.

A toy Jin has owned since he was a little pirate. I think it is safe to say that it is vintage.

Jin told me, that he begged his father for it. I am glad he still has it.

From what I understand, it is like a little electronics toy, and by following the instructions in this book, you can make different things. Like a radio, an alarm, some sort of sensor...

We made an amplifier, connected the microphone to it, and had a karaoke session with the cats.

    the toy looks great! I remember I once bought an apple-radio for my little nephew, can't explain what it was, but you needed a real apple to make the radio work!!

  8. I had a mid-80s version of this toy!!
    I wasn't, however, adept at using it. No electrical engineer here.

    Fun!
