Few people have heard of it, yet many consider John Blankenbaker's KENBAK-1 to be the first commercial personal computer.

Koss introduced these headphones over 40 years ago, and they remain affordable favorites to this day.

Paya Hermanos Model 970 Tin Car

I mentioned Paya tin toys several months ago. The Spanish company was founded in the early 1900s and produced a variety of truly beautiful toys. They were briefly resurrected in the 1980s and produced some nice reissues of their classics.

This is a 1986 reproduction of their Model 970 sports car from 1930. The best thing about it is the great big wind-up key that plugs into the side, of course. These reproductions are becoming rare, so it's good to see one that comes in the original illustrated box, along with the big Paya key and a numbered certificate of authenticity.
