Fisher-Price Record Player
It looks but same but is very different than the original
I bought this for my 5 year old granddaughter for Christmas because she loves listening and dancing to music. Her mother had one of these as a child so I figured she'd get a kick out of it as well and sure enough she did.
It does have drawbacks. It requires batteries, but still needs to be wound up. I would have preferred the original version since the old fashioned one played like a record player. (The record would spin) This newer version doesn't spin. And the wind up feature is useless since it just confuses kids. If I had it to do over again, I probably wouldn't buy it since it's just like every other battery operated toy. (And I avoid them like the plague)

I found it!
My son had this same player Minus the batteries when he was a little boy. He is 42 now and has his own family so I bought this for my grand children. I still have the original but it needs repairs.
Thank you for a great store/cataloge and you guys are the best!

great preschool toy
Our children, now adults, had this toy as children and loved it. I bought it for our 2 1/2 year old grandson, who loves to listen and see Grandma's real records. He figured out how to work it, with some help, very quickly, and carries it around where ever he goes! He plays the songs , and is beginning to sing and dance to them...something he does not do to his parents CDs. I was very glad to be able to purchase this nearly indestructible record player

Memories of childhood.
I gave this record player to my grown son for Christmas. He had one like this when he was a child and now has his own one year old son. He was very surprised and pleased. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was because later he told me it was not exactly the same. This one uses batteries and the music does not actually come from the record, like the old wind up model did. But his son won't know the difference and I think everyone was pleased with the present.

Some things never get old!
My grandchild loves music. Most of the musical toys available are either too sophisticated or not strong enough to hold up to a 2 yrd old. I found the FP Record Player through your catalog and am happy to say that she is merrily playing her own records and singing along - just like her mother did many years ago.

30 years later
I bought this for my grandson Mason becuase it was my sons favorite toy. Mark my son would put the disc that played Edelweiss on for me as I got ready for work because he knew it was my favorite. My son died a little while ago so that is why I bought this for my grandson-so he could enjoy his uncles simple toys and so I could go down memory lane with Mason. Unfortunately even though the description states it has this song/disc it does not. I was disapoined but Mason wouldn't know what is missing. Please change this description for others. Here is what is stated about this toy:
"Give your little tykes the gift of music this Christmas by placing this Fisher-PriceÂ® record player under the tree. A reproduction of the 1971 original, it plays the included recordsâjust like a real record playerâby simply winding it up (requires 3 AA batteries, not included). Features a carrying handle for easy portability and five plastic records containing two songs each. Songs include "Humpty Dumpty," "Jack & Jill," "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star," "Au Clair de La Lune," "London Bridges," "Oh Where Has My Dog Gone," "Camptown Races," "Children's Marching Song," "Hickory Dickory Doc," and "Edelweiss." 9Â¼"x 8Â½"x 3Â¾". Ages 18 months and up."
