When I first saw one of these I didn’t realise what is was, (a radio). Now, courtesy of one of my local charity shops I have a pink one, it cost me £1.50.
It’s actually rather good, twist the tail to tune it and twist the head to turn it on (works for me every time). Apparently waterproof, quite loud (very when my daughter is in the bathroom).
Bottom line is that design can be fun, even frivolous but still well-executed.
