Sylvac rabbit figurine. Either my great aunt or my grandmother had one of these cute bunnies, but unfortunately it wasn't passed down to me. I had to buy my own.
My father was a radio technician, and as I grew up our kitchen table seemed always to hold at least one valve radio he was repairing for a relative or neighbour. This transistor radio is the first product I remember seeing on TV and desperately wanting. Not only was it a radio, you could wear it as a bangle! I was very happy when my parents gave me one for Christmas. Mine was blue. I don't remember how much they cost new, but I saw this red one for sale for $165 last week.
