Blast from the Past: Fisher Price Music Box Record Player

One of Mr. Hunter's favorite items at the Vermont Country Store was the classic Fisher Price Music Box Record Player.  I used to love playing with this record player!

The songs on these records were Jack and Jill, Edelweiss, Au Claire de la Lune, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Humpty Dumpty, Oh Where Has My Dog Gone, London Bridge, Hickory Dickory Dock, Children's Marching Song, and... as you can see, Camptown Races.

Of course, I've just read some reviews of this new version of the classic toy, and it turns out that this newer record "player" is missing some of the most charming features of the original, particularly the grooved records that the record player's arm would actually read to play the songs. 

Oh, well...!
