Iconic gifts from long ago that triggered memory.
Image #1: My brother (right) and I (left) with our new Slinkies. "It walks the stairs alone or in pairs, it makes a slinkity sound. A spring, a spring, a wonderful thing, everyone loves a Slinky."
Image #2: the 1960's miracle gift of the personal-sized tape recorder. Finally small, cheap, and durable enough to give to children. Mine is only partially visible in the lower right. You can see that they were mini reel-to-reel models. A ton of fun indeed. I quickly went into espionage: plant it under brother's bed in record mode, leave it running, retrieve it later. Too bad that when the tape ran out, it made a slapping sound that gave it all away.
