Here's some trivia for you...the first remote intended to control a television set was developed by Zenith Radio Corporation in 1950. The remote was called 'Lazy Bones' and it was connected to the television by a wire. In 1955, a wireless remote control called the 'Flashmatic' was developed by Eugene Polley. (Thank you Mr. Polley...our lazy bones are greatly appreciative.)
Some time in the late 1960s / early 1970s, someone realized we had too many remotes all over the place (and never where you could find it) so this TV plastic Lucite caddy was created. The stand actually spells out the word TV. On the top are three compartments for remotes (or pens/pencils/desk things if you prefer). There's another compartment at the side of the base.
It's trademarked SIDE KICK. After an extensive search of the Internet, we could find no other such 'TV' TV stand. It's either the only one ever made or anyone who still has one is hoarding it along with their many remotes.
This TV Side Kick measures 9 inches across by 7 1/4 inches high by 3 1/4 inches at side. We have 6 different remotes around our one TV (with no idea what they're for) and they all fit in the slots. Your remote(s) will find this TV a great place to call 'home'. And in case you ever forgot where your TV is, this word standing nearby will remind you.
This is a great pop culture TV classic piece...definitely RARE.
