“ Brand: Funtime Gifts „
This is a fab little gift for the musician in your life. Based on the famous Stratocaster electric guitar, the makers of this radio have tried hard to replicate details found in the original. The tone knobs, scratch plate and headstock are fairly faithfully reproduced in miniature form.
This is made by a company called "Funtime gifts " who are guilty of bringing the very annoying and hideous " Big mouth Billy bass" to the world stage. Remember that awful singing fish on a wall plaque that was popular years ago? Yes, these are the same people. Thankfully they have gained a degree of taste in the years that have followed (although the fish is still available to buy if there is somebody that you really don't like). If you can forgive them for this taste indiscretion then this little gizmo is a cute and unusual gift.
This little plastic guitar houses a fully functioning FM radio. It comes with headphones which are surprisingly comfortable and runs on two AG13 batteries ( the little silver round ones that are like watch batteries ). The guitar tone knobs are tuners which you use to scan for stations, easy to use and effective.
It does not struggle to pick up FM stations downstairs in my house but upstairs it is defunct. I live in a rural area so that is not the fault of the radio. It sits in my kitchen on the windowsill amongst the plants when not in use and looks very cute.
This is easy to stash in a pocket if you are out and about, we have taken ours to the beach and it is sturdy enough to cope with being shoved in pockets and bags. Great fun and a bargain considering what you get for your money. The company also sell a retro vintage style radio if you are so inclined.
