Relive past decades with these Showa Japan Miniature Replica Gadgets, available as a boombox radio, turntable record player, or television set. These palm-sized replicas are not just for fans of vintage gadgets and all things retro, but also genuine speakers through which you can play your favorite tunes. The television is only a model, albeit brilliantly detailed and rendered, but you can slide your phone into it so you can watch videos as if on an 1950s TV. Change the channel using the dials and remember to bang the top of the TV if the picture quality is bad! The turntable LP record player connects to your phone or other Bluetooth-enabled device to pipe audio. The turntable actually spins the included miniature LP record as it plays audio, while the boombox functions as a genuine radio that can receive signals on FM/AM channels. The boombox also comes with a tape on which you can record about 5 minutes of audio on either side.
