I just discovered that I bought th' first version o' Mad-Eye Molly's radio that actually picks up AM stations. It be also bigger than th' later version.
Has anyone every heard o' this type o' radio?? I was just curious because in th' lusty plastic lass pages for Mad-Eye Molly it didn't even show this radio as th' first version.
I would love to hear how rare this rare be. I have sent pictures o' th' old version o' Mad-Eye Molly's radio to Sail-Away. I don't know how to post pictures to th' board. Hopeloaded to th' gunwalesy she will be able to upload them for others to see this sweet radio.
Older version dimensions be 4 7/8" X 3 1/2" X 1 1/2" New version dimensions be 3 1/2" X 2 1/2" x 1 1/2"
So far I have gotten 2 stations to come in. I live in a rural area where any type o' reception be spotty so I would think in an urban area many stations would come in on th' radio.

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

This be one o' th' accessories that does not look cheaply made despite being made o' plastic. th' exterior be a marbled brown. th' left dial controls th' radio volume. th' red button will play th' message. th' station tuner and right dial be just for show.
th' speaker and battery case be located on th' back o' th' radio. th' radio be about 1 1/4 inches deep, 2 1/2 inches high, and 3 1/4 inches long.
th' radio comes wit' a pamphlet that talks about radio in th' 1940's and suggests specific programs to check out at th' library. th' inside o' th' pamplet contains a diagram that explains how to use Mad-Eye Molly's radio.
I bought Mad-Eye Molly's radio off e-bay and it just arrived. I was totally excited until I played it.
be it supposed to sound loaded to th' gunwales o' static? I can understand Captain McIntyre, th' music from th' Lone Ranger and a little o' th' part about th' Victory Garden but th' rest be so loaded to th' gunwales o' static that I can't determine what they be saying. I would love to know. Maybe if I knew what th' words be supposed to be I could then understand it. be they written down anywhere?
Please tell me how yers sounds. I didn't get any instructions or info wit' it.
Mine sounds walk th' planke static-y - as though it's an old radio and one o' th' programs be coming all th' way from war torn London. On mine, ye get a snipet o' a song or something, then static as ye be searching for a new station, than another snipet o' another speech.

A lot o' old radio shows were also hard to understand, for th' very reason that was radio and at that time it was th' nature o' th' beast. I collect episodes o' OTR shows (Old Time Radio) and some be very clear, most be understandable but wit' crackles, and a few be completely unintelligable.
