Overall Grade: A I don't have any complaints about Molly's radio. Mine is several years old and is still in great working order. It looks nice and can be displayed throughout the year in versatile scenes - bedroom, desk, kitchen, etc.
Original Description: There were few televisions in 1944, so families gathered around the radio for news and entertainment. You can listen in just like the McIntires did on Christmas Day. Press the red button to hear snippets from actual World War Two era shows. There’s even a special message from Captain McIntire!

This is one of the accessories that does not look cheaply made despite being made of plastic. The exterior is a marbled brown. The left dial controls the radio volume. The red button will play the message. The station tuner and right dial are just for show.
The speaker and battery case are located on the back of the radio. The radio is about 1 1/4 inches deep, 2 1/2 inches high, and 3 1/4 inches long.
The radio comes with a pamphlet that talks about radio in the 1940's and suggests specific programs to check out at the library. The inside of the pamplet contains a diagram that explains how to use Molly's radio.
