The Eighties: Rami and Pallino
Rami reached the Quercetti firm in 1982. It was a revolutionary toy with a strong educational value, which allowed a first contact with the language of computers and explained, in a simple fashion, how to count in the binary system.
In 1985, following Rami, Pallino was created, a further success. That same year, a competitor at the Milan Fair, speaking about the Pallino product, said: “It’s easy to see how come none can keep up with you”. Pallino used small spheres for the composition of graphic images on a screen; via the use of buttons and keys, executed in the correct order, it was a good training for the necessary manual skill for using computers.
