Many people working from home have already transformed a small space into an office space. If you’re still looking to create a productive and stylish place to work, you should definitely get this retro typewriter keyboard.
Typewriters and typewriter keyboards are having a moment.

The full-size keyboard comes in several fun different colors with a mouse that you can link up with your computer using the included USB add-on. You will have to use batteries for both the mouse and keyboard to operate them at the same time. Thankfully, you only need two AA batteries. Plus, the mouse is shaped to mold to the natural curves of your palm, and there’s even an extra side button to click when you want to flip back to a previous screen or site. With chunky round keys instead of the square keys that you’re used to seeing, the keyboard mimics the look, feel (and somewhat sound) of a typewriter.
As someone who owns this exact keyboard, it’s way easier writing up stories on here than from my laptop keyboard. The buttons are bigger if you have stubby hands like me. Plus, compared to my laptop’s keyboard, this one has more keys, including a pad of number keys.
What Shoppers Think of the Retro Typewriter Keyboard
Over 4,100 customers love the keyboard, with an overall rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars. It’s an office and gaming staple, according to Amazon shoppers.
“I am in love [with] this!” one keyboard buyer said in a review. “I have been wanting a typewriter for a very long time, but they are really out of my price range. So when I found this, I was very happy. I didn’t know what to expect, but it is so amazing. It’s just perfect! The color, the feel, just amazing.”
Another person who bought the keyboard mentioned that it “was definitely meant for a Windows computer.”
“I just got this keyboard today, and I’m already in love with it.” They wrote. “It has the nice heavy clicky sound I was looking for (see video) and is aesthetically pleasing to look at. I have a Macbook Air 2019, and it connected very easily for me. I’m still getting used to the differences in key placement since this keyboard was definitely meant for a Windows computer, but I’ve been able to make it work.”
If you’re that person who can’t get enough of the sound of a loud keyboard, this one may be your new office buddy.
