Acme Magnets: a source of small-scale props

Acme Magnets, now sadly defunct, issued a wide variety of  kitchen magnets in the 1980s, 1990s, and early 2000s. A lot of them were household items, including furniture, appliances, and food. Some of them even had sound features. Anyway, Acme magnets, while popular on Ebay, can be had for decent prices [$5.00-$10.00 apiece shipped], and they combine sturdy construction with realistic detailing and, in some cases, obnoxious noises. :p Today we’re looking at a boom box magnet!


Ooooooh, it’s mint in package. Spiffy.
It’s so mint that no one has removed the tab.
At 8.8cm long x 3.6cm high [without handle] x 2.5cm deep, it’s rather large for Missy and Bill [1:7.333333333 scale], unless they really want to blast some tunes. [Despite Missy’s bemused look, she does in fact want a stereo this big!]
It’s the perfect size for 1:6 scale dolls, though, as the Master demonstrates.
Oh shit, he hit the PLAY button. It’s playing the Macarena! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!
