If you are like most people, you won’t recognize these handy gadgets

Gadgets make life a whole heck of a lot easier from day to day, but can you name these once popular around-the-house-helpers?

Odds are, you may not be able to it.

Our first gadget, is this little fella:

If you are like me, the first thing I notice about this once-popular gadget is that it appears to be a coin. Well, sort of.

But if you sew, you may just know what I am talking about.

The device is called a needle threader — and for those who do not sew — it would help those who put thread in the eye of a needle.

Ready for the next one?

If you are stumped, fear not!

The device is called a Church Key and is used to open cans before the twist off or pull tab was invented.

Where the church comes in, I have no idea.

Next, we have this fidget-spinner lookalike below:

While it looks like a toy, it is actually a record adapter. Currently, there are few in circulation as most people do not use them but they were originally designed for adjusting a record that was not the correct size.

And last but certainly not least, these bad boys:

No, this is not a joke and yes, people DID where these.

Well, not out and about but definitely around the house!

Derived in the 70s, it was believed if you wore these while working around your home, the Wonder Sauna hotpants would burn stomach thigh fat.

And while it was just a fad, I can never unsee this image.

What a time to be alive!
