Fisher-Price Change-a-Record Music Box


The Fisher-Price Change-a-Record Music Box was first released in 1971. It includes 5 double-sided toy records in different colors with a total of ten songs. These are kept in a storage compartment in the back of the record player. Like so many musical toys, it has a handle for portability. I'm still trying to figure out what it means for a music box to pretend to be a record player. Is this a practice record player for very young children who are not yet able or allowed to use a real one, or is it a toy in its own right with pleasures specific to its form?
