Fisher-Price Fisher-Price Retro Record Player

About the Fisher-Price Retro Record Player

Some classic toys come back every few years in a slightly different form, adapted to the tastes of a later generation. LEGOs have never lost their popularity, for instance, but the sets we see today are quite different from the ones we grew up with (and although it may offend some nostalgic types to say so, the new ones may actually be better). Cartoon franchises like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Care Bears, and My Little Pony come back every five years or so, too, but they’re always just a little different, updated for modern kids.

 

So it’s comforting for our generation, parents who grew up in the ‘70s and ‘80s, to see the classic Fisher-Price Record Player back on our shelves with the same familiar look and feel. Remember the chiming music-box renditions of classic songs? The thrill of winding up your record player and watching it spin? The delight of dropping the needle on the record and hearing the first notes? You can share this good old-fashioned joy with your kids – and it’s okay, you can admit that you sort of want this record player for yourself, too.

 

The Schylling Fisher-Price Retro Record Player has the same retro design and packaging as the original, and has the same compartment inside to hold the five plastic records. Songs include:

 

  • Oh Where Has My Dog Gone
  • Edelweiss
  • Jack & Jill
  • London Bridges
  • Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
  • Au Clair de La Lune
  • Children's Marching Song
  • Humpty Dumpty
  • Hickory Dickory Doc
  • Camptown Races

 

The inner workings of the Fisher-Price Retro Record Player differ just a little from the original – it runs on batteries, and winding it controls the speakers rather than the turntable – but the sound is lovely and clear, and the operation of the record player is the same. A handle on top of the record player lets kids carry it around the house. The Schylling Fisher-Price Retro Record Player requires 3 AA batteries; for ages 18 months and up (younger children will need a parent to get the record player started).
