Not one to normally buy toy typewriters, but my wife spotted this at an antique mall in Woodstock, ON. Love the font and it seems to be pretty rare, so I snagged it. Elite typeface. Great for typing small things!

My father brought with him a Hermes Rocket when he emigrated from the UK to Canada in 1967 and I remember playing with it as a kid. This memory was reignited while I was in Montreal for work this past February and came across a stationery shop that had five typewriters in the window. When I got home, I went on the hunt for my first typewriter - caught the bug and haven't stopped!
