Oh man, I had the same kit. That one was definitely a strong memory trigger. One project that stands out was the radio. It was the first one I did Christmas morning. I remember listening to Christmas songs on the station I tuned in.

"Antique" commonly means 100 years old and older. Stop trying to make us feel old! ;)

My nephews and nieces recently got something that looks pretty much just like this. I helped them do one of the projects. I didn't realize it was an antique toy. I'm not sure if they toy was an actual antique or just a remake of the old toy.
