Thifting jackpot wishes

If I ever found one of these at a thrift store I would die with excitement:

It's a Fisher Price 1970s record player.  It only plays it's own nursery rhyme records and there's a little slot in the back to hold them all as well as a handle to carry it around!  I had one when I was younger, and I assume my mom sold it in a yard sale at some point.  Lately though I've noticed that JCPenney and a few other stores are selling reproductions of it.

Still not the same to me.  Maybe I should comb the deep crevices of the storage room to see if it's still there.  I would seriously scream with happiness.  Someone here in Cinci is selling one on Craigslist if anyone (hahemmm sisters and Brian) want to buy it for me for Christmas!

Big day tomorrow, wish me luck!

  1. We have that at home! Or at least we did when we were kids. It's such a cute thing! They don't make 'em like that anymore. I hope someone you love finds it for you for Christmas! :)

  2. i was walking home45 min ago here on may18,2011 from work and behind where there used to be a vintage clothing and other stuff store , under a pile of bags of junk i found a record player with all of the records.
    it is in awesome condition ... since it is a windup it works even despite sitting in the rain... it has a copyright date of 1971 on it
