I have a lindstrom tool and toy co. portable phonograph, model number 285. It is in decent condition. It has tins with it with a bazillion extra needles. The tin has phonograph bullion cubes written on it. The other tin is too worn to see what it says. They were inside the phonograph. What is the approximate worth of this?Thank you.

I have a Lindstrom electronic phonograph model No.888 it appears to be designed for use by a child there's a second plate that reads Project of Bing Crosby research foundation Majorette what I would like to know is when it may have been made
►reply: Small phonograph for children with pictures of majorettes on it. Model 999 was more popular. Probably made early 1940s. Last month one was sold for 10 USD, but in a bad condition. Good ones can fetch between 50-100 USD. Model 999 is bigger and looks more like a little juke box.

I'm looking for any catalog, advertising, etc., that might show the combination of a turquoise toy sewing machine decorated with bright colored floral design. The specific packaging is a doll-sized travel trunk which holds the toy sewing machine on the left above a drawer, and a doll, tied in with a ribbon on the right. The doll would be about 12 inches. Also would like to be in touch with someone who may own this combo.
