Ha. Life is beautiful. I colleceted three new toys in the last three days – the toys I dreamed in my childhood, but those never been thought about in recent 10 years.
Old Style Clock
Look at this. This is a old style clock. It is completely machinical clock. I need to wind the springs every night to keep it walking. :-) It is so interesting. I hate electronic things recently. This clock, like followes, are something you need to take care of everyday. I had dreamed of this toy when I was eleven years old – it was a magic toy for me at that time. Today, I was really excited to see this old style clock with alarm in IKEA. The price for this clock is only 38 RMB (about 4 USD). Nice toy, isn’t it?
The second toy I bought for myself is the FM/WM two-band radio. This is also an old style radio set. There are too many mini radio set in my life. I have many tiny radio that are very small – that can be easily put into my pocket without being noticed from outside. They also provide automatic tuning. Now I think it is boring – the radio is just as cheap as paper and I can just through them away – only serveral Yuan each.
This radio is different – it is similiar with the large radio set I used to receive the children program in 1980’s. The large speaker and large battery made the voice very good and more importantly, loud. It costs me 40 RMB (about 4 USD).
Black and White TV Set
Guess what? I even bought me a small 5.5 inch black-white TV Set.
After I bought it home, I still didn’t find out what I can do with it. The only reason I bought it was, it was cheap. Guess how much it costs? 90 RMB (10 USD). There are some other TV that are smaller and cheaper.
After I put it into my bed room, I felt it was really an amazing toy. I even find it more enjoyable to watch some program on this small one than the large full-sized color TV in my living room.
I bought the radio set and TV set in the Xiandai Electronics Mall at the corner of Xiangyan Rd. and Fuxing Rd.
BTW, Wendy loves the clock but didn’t comment on the radio set and TV set yet. :-)
