Common household objects that have now disappeared

I saw one of these the other day - a real blast from the past...

It made me start to think about some of the things that you'd once find in every house but now have disappeared. What are some of your nominations?

@Kermit,

Didn't you hear? Vinyl's made a revival!

Personally I've got one at home. Definitely not that old school looking though.

@ Isobel, I still have one at home for when the power goes out. Does that sound crazy ? My kids think so and wonder who I'd want to talk to during a blackout. Really ??? How about the power company. Cheers

That one takes me back. I remember getting up early to watch the Thunderbirds and cook toast on the radiator using a fork. Probably not the safest activity for a kid...

See something interesting? Give it the thumbs up!
