It was a rhetorical question, sorry.

Oh nice. I'd like to see them. Are all from the same decade or a mix of decades eg 70s, 80s, 90s?

When you replied did you click on attachments & click add files? If you did once you found the photo you may to to make the image smaller for it to upload. My images are 700 x 525.

I'm not sure which decade they were made. Six of them all look identical with the same style of writing and motors, but one has slightly different style of writing and a smaller motor. I'll take pics of the motors etc soon. Do you still have all of yours?

Very nice! They look like early to mid 70s models. If you pop the siren part out from the bottom housing you should see a year stamped on them I'm guessing.

One of my 6 volt units that looks like yours has the year 1975 stamped onto the side of the motor.

Yes I still have all my Minimites. I do wish they were dual tone though. They would sound much nicer if dual tone to what they do now being single tone.

I had a look and 4 of them say 1978. The other 3 are smudged so I can't make them out, but I presume they were from around the same time.

I tested them using a 9v battery, very impressive for their size :)

Very nice! Yes they're very potent little noisemakers.
