Yes i think I had a few of them at school , good old days I Know I had the boat one with trips on the ferry with a Toblerone :lol:
Great :) Thank Jason, they really were mesmerising weren't they.
Funny I mention to my wife , Marie last night if she remembers and she recalled having a horse one for school . Funny how really small objects can send you back in time with fond memories.....
Very true that is Jason. Some things just stick in your mind. I have loads of things like this which bring up great memories.

The music centre used to be a major part of living room furniture. Of course we have it all miniaturised now in the digital world. But it was a far more fun and rewarding experience like this.

Love it Paul :D

Throughout the 70's and into early 80's I played all my records on one similar to this. It was my Dads that he had when he was 21 iirc.

We then had a music centre about 1981, and I had a twin cassette radio for bedroom use. Dad kept the radiogram until 2010 when cleared out his house! Takes up room so was not practical to keep :(

That's the one Paul, with built in tapebeck and twin speakers :) Just right for blasting Heavy Metal :guitar: :D

Got a top loading VHS video recorder around that time too, just right for watching Heavy Metal :lol:

Happy Days!!!

Superb Andy, made me smile that did. Those were truly outstanding times for technology, we all became wizards!
