    Wow, fantastic finds! I had a TV like that and one of those radio’s…it went through all my Brothers after me. Brilliant!

    I used to have one of those TVs and the radio too. Some very happy memories triggered by those photos.

    Hi, I’ve been car booting for decades and ammassed a huge collection of vintage Fisher Price. I love the stuff and I figured if I ever had children I ‘d never need to buy them any toys! Well, fast forward a few years and my daughter only has eyes for modern (ugh!) Disney tat, so I started selling all the FP on ebay. Apart from a wind up radio just like the one I had as a child.
    Anyway, I have the school desk. Please let me send it to you! Message me with your address or leave a comment on my blog which I won’t publish?

    I had a tv like this when I was a child in the early 80s,but mine played Raindrops Keep falling on my Head,and the picture had a girl in wellies,raincoat and hat splashing in puddles. Now I am wondering if it actually was a Fisher Price one,although the unit looks very similar!

      Thanks for your comment! I think Fisher Price produced lots of versions playing different tunes over the years.

    I have this great book
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fisher-Price-Toys-Pictorial-Guide-Popular/dp/1574321420/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1352726437&sr=1-2
    which shows all the different versions of everything they made. It’s stupidly expensive on Amazon. But great fun to remember what you had as a child!

      Thanks for the tip. I’ve never seen this book before but it looks really interesting, perhaps I will find a copy in a charity shop!
