Strange, but fascinating! That musical toy typewriter made me chuckle with the mice's antics. "We all were very good... really..."

Ah, an Oliver portable! I've heard of those; how does it type?

Those type sleeves look very modern, almost current technology; but they predate IBM's golfball type element by a long time, right? Would you happen to have the machine that used them, so that we can take a look? ^^
