Jack White and his recording company are set to release a children friendly record player together with a children compilation and a storybook.
Yes I know, they have the right to get to use one of those too, to have in a future far away (!) some lovely memories like many of us do.
I had one myself, it was blue in colour and I also had some of the nicest LPs ever.
Nowadays, the life is so fast passed that some of the children barely know what is to play with marbles and yo-yos, having something like that be brought back is a breath of fresh air.
The children’s compilation features songs by Nina Simone, The Pointer Sisters, Kermit the Frog and more. The storybook tells a story about a group of forest friends who find some mysterious gadget and after learning how to use it, have lots of fun dancing and enjoying the music played on vinyl.
The turntable/record player has yet to be released to the public but it won’t be long now. It will be available from November the 6th ( just in time for Christmas!) via The Man Store online and it will cost $95.
The record player would make a lovely Xmas gift, wouldn’t it?
