The other day, I couldn't find my daughter. It's not a huge problem. Sometimes she'll take an iPad and hide under her covers to watch cartoons or she'll sneak into our bedroom to play my Nintendo DS. When I found her, it turns out she was just sitting quietly listening to our old Fisher Price record player.

I thought it was very amusing that we, in the Riggs household (or apartmenthold), have iPads and iPods; iPhones and video games; tvs with DVDs and BluRay players and with every bit of electronics we have, she was perfectly content winding up this device and playing these classic tunes on this old, but still working, toy.

I thought I'd share. Did you have one of these?
