Picked up another blast from the past. It's a Hasbro Think-A-Tron made in the '60s. I recieved one of these for Christmas in '61. It wasn't a requested toy, but I've posted before my mother would often throw in an educational toy with the Christmas booty. It turned out that I really liked it. It had 150 miniature punch cards with questions on each side, a multiple choice and a true-false. You inserted the card into the holder and pushed it in. It was designed so that the front panel "lights" flickered before indicating the answer as "A", "B", "C", "T" or "F". It was designed to play as a game with score counters on both ends.
Whenever Christmas rolls around I often think of the wonderful thoughtful gifts my mother gave me and their influence on my life. I eventually worked in the electronics/ computer field, I guess this was my first computer.
