The Child's Typewriter was in invented by Miers Fisher of Denver, Colorado. He patented this odd, two-piece typewriter in 1890. It old for just $2, which is understandable because it's such a crude, simple and small writing machine (the Child's measured just 7" long). It is unclear why it was named The Child's typewriter. Maybe it was meant to be a toy, or maybe it's because it was easy enough for a child to master.
