I remember the heavy duty TV stand wheeled into our classroom for the latest space launch. Being a bit younger than Paul, I remember nothing earlier than the Gemini program. I built Revell's model of a Gemini capsule, and boy did it have a lot of little parts that were hard to paint. More fun was Aurora's model of an astronaut floating in a space walk. I got the first as a Christmas gift, but I remember specifically buying the second at King Norman's Kingdom of Toys.
