Mum chose well.

Studies say that sometime around 200BC in Babylon, a boy called Elmesu carved a Father's Day message on a clay card. And Father's day was born. Fast forward about 4000 years, and here we are.(actually a girl called Sonora Dodd came up with it in 1910, in Spokane, Washington. Her dad was a really top guy). But the clay story is pretty good. I personally love the idea of giving my dad some personalized rock, but in the event that your kiln isn't working, we can highly recommend popping into Lulu for some excellent dad-ly things he will appreciate.

Yup, this is what you think it is. The same one you used in 1988 to spell out your name and chuck it on the inside of things that didn't need your name on it. Like the dogs collar, or your 
brother's grade 2 text book.  
The motex label maker is back. Slightly more frivolous this time around perhaps, but isn't cuteness always less practical?

And what would one possibly want with such a properly retro device in 2013?

glad you asked...

Label Makers, $20 (have they gone up at ALL since the 80's?).
