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.

Schylling Tin Toys

Schylling was founded 30 years ago in Rowley, Massachusetts. They offer a mix of retro-styled classic toys and brand new inventions. By far my favourite Shylling products are their stunning line of tin toys. This is the place to come if you're seeking a reproduction of the Liliput tin robot, believed to be the first tin robot made in Japan.

The real would fetch tens of thousands at auction, but the slightly-larger-than-original reproduction is a mere $15.99 through their online store. If you're more into cars, they offer tin recreations of the Blue Bird and Sunbeam land speed record cars, too. They even come in retro-style boxes.

See tintoys.com for details.
