That kid’s record recorder is pretty awesome. It works like a tape recorder. I wonder how well it worked.

“Playtalk” electronic toy for children uses a grooveless paper disk coated with “powdered” iron to record and reproduce magnetically music or voice. Records hold about two minutes of recording; can be “erased” and reused often
