It’s a brave new world

These objects are examples of a tradition started many years ago by a company that was a pioneer in its field. You still get things like these today with some select products.

What are such things called, and what company are these specific products from?

Answer:
Feelies, from Infocom.

Infocom would package little bits of merchandise (like the peril sensitive sunglasses, the Amulet of Yendor(?) and the whole bunch of forms) that would add some jazz to the text adventures. You see them even today….
