    This plastic beauty came with a variety of classic hits like "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star", and "All Around the Mulberry Bush" All you had to do was wind it up on the front, put down the yellow plastic arm, and listen to 30 seconds of your favorite tune.

    LyNese and I would ride our bikes down to Radio Shack or Thompson's music and buy 45's--- Blondie was a personal fav. You had to keep them in a "high place" so your your little sisters wouldn't scratch them.

    I got it for Christmas when I was in 5th or 6th grade. I listened to Queen-- Another Brick in the Wall about 500 times. I also got a "classics" cassette and one of the songs was "Flight of the Bumble Bee"-- the souped up version. And... I could wear it when I walked to my friends. Good Times!

    It has a two cassette players, a record player AND a radio. It was a monster and had two giant speakers with extremely short cords. Record and Cassette Story in the cabinet was a big plus! You could record your favorite songs straight from the radio. (the problem in Richfield, Utah-- you could only get like 3 stations.
