Orla Kiely retro wind up radio

Orla_radio A 70s plastic transistor radio? Actually no, it’s the very modern Orla Kiely retro wind up radio.

Yes, it does have the looks of a vintage piece, from the outer design to the old-style scrolling tuner. But unlike an old radio, this one doesn’t need batteries, requiring a wind of the handle for power. But in case you can’t be bothered with that, you can use batteries or mains. Also included is a telescopic aerial, splashproof speaker and a torch on the side. In fact, everything you might need for camping or a festival.

Available now, you can pick this up only from Millets, priced at £19.99.

  • Looks really cool…or maybe that’s just me being born in the 70s. 🙂
    A lot of winding-gadgets around these days.

  • I was born in the eighties (spit) and I think it looks great!
