William Lidwell's forthcoming book, Deconstructing Product Design, won't be published until Fall 2009, but he is soliciting input on 100 classic product to include in the book. From the web site:
If you have actually used any of these products, know interesting or little known facts about them, or have a visceral response or personal perspective that you would like to share, write it up as a comment on this site. If we select your entry for inclusion in the print book, you will have a byline with your comment and you will be included in the contributor section.

While the majority are not "interactive" products, there are still many examples that are, including several from Apple, Motorola and Sony...not to mention Bratz and Cabbage Patch dolls.

P.S. - Lidwell was one of the authors of Universal Product Design, which is my favorite design reference book - review here: http://humanfactors.typepad.com/idsa/2006/04/book_review_uni.html

P.P.S. - My bad, the earlier book is called Universal PRINCIPLES of
Design
