Of course, every child needs a record player, ideally one suited for purpose. Like this wonderful Third Man Records vintage-style Mini Record Player for kids.
This special edition portable player has been produced to coincide with the launch of the This Record Belongs To compilation album, which is a varied collection of tunes brought together for kids from the likes of Carole King, Harry Nilsson, The Pointer Sisters and Kermit the Frog. Not only that, the album is accompanied by a record-themed, full-colour storybook, with illustrations from noted artist Jess Rotter. You can pre-order that here.
The record player is harder to find, but is heading to the UK as well as its native US. That’s a kid-friendly player from Jensen with images of Manny, the Third Man mascot on the casing. It also has three speeds, built-in speakers and a USB port for converting vinyl to digital. A Manny t-shirt and sticker is also thrown in for good measure.
Of course, adults can use it too and we suspect a good many might. But it is aimed at kids primarily and if you want one for yours, the price is £105.99 on pre-order.
