Maybe you had one of these record players as a kid. I certainly owned one, and they seemed ubiquitous to me at the time. Toys from our childhood make a comeback, including this sweet Fisher Price Classics Retro Record Player.

I can’t tell the difference between this brand new wind up record player and the one I loved as a kid. My third child got it as a birthday present, and both he and his siblings love playing their own music.

Five records in different colors fanned out for Fisher Price Retro Record Player

Each of the five records plays a different song on both sides.

The player has a compartment underneath that will hold all five plastic records, each one a different color. The records will each play two familiar songs, one per side, including Twinkle Twinkle, Little Star and London Bridge. My kids like trying to guess the song playing now that they can sing along. Unlike the original, this one requires three AA batteries, and the switch above the record doesn’t move to turn the spinning on or off.  It comes with a handle on top, which makes it a bit bulky for storing while not in use but super simple for even the smallest kid to tote around.
