Why do I collect?
As a child I always wanted a Stylophone, but my parents gave me a different Christmas present: a Lite 'n Learn
electronic organ by Concept 2000. A very cheap sounding machine with LED's. In relation to the very popular Stylophone
, this Concept 2000 organ is incredibly hard to find these days. On my search for it, some other great little musical machines appeared in my life - so I wasn't able to resist these wonderful toys. They have interesting sounds. They are often well-designed and show great box-art. Unfortunately, most of these musical toys haven't fulfilled the dreams they promised. So they often ended up in the trash. That's why most of them are very rare today.
What do I collect?
I'm focussed on 70s and 80s electronic musical toys -
mostly organs - and only a few are older or newer. I
only collect electronic machines - not electric, not
electromechanical and not mechanical!
How big is the collection?
When I started collecting, which was around 2001, I
thought the collection will go up to 40-50 pieces
maximum. Now (April 2005) there are around 180 toys here
The website shows only the highlights but it is
possible I want to show all. There one or two updates
every year... so check this site from time to time.
And if you find something I don't have... let me know.
You'll always get nice emails from me...
