197X Buddy-L Easy Writer 200 Serial # NA 197X Buddy-L Easy Writer 200 typewriter, Serial # NA Mark Petersen's 197X Buddy-L Easy Writer 200 typewriter. 2014-07-07 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 197X Buddy-L Easy Writer 200 Serial # NA This is a Buddy L toy typewriter I got off of eBay for $10 including shipping. It is a remarkable design and very impressive but it totally sucks to type on and prints even worse. I am still amazed this machine is in fact a complete typewriter, even with automatic ribbon reverse! Made in Japan, copyright on the bottom of the machine is 1976.

Sold for $9 to the mother of a little boy who will either beat the hell out of it and throw it away or beat the hell out of it and fall in love with typewriters. Let's hope for the later :)
