Playskool Tape Recorder (1992)

An advertisement from 1992 for the Playskool Tape Recorder, reflecting a time when cassettes were still king. The recorder sported a kid-friendly (ages 3 and up) design, complete with color-coded controls, rubber bumpers, and battery-saving auto shut-off. An attached microphone allowed kids to develop early Karaoke skills while a volume limiter was built-in, much to the relief of parents everywhere!

Remember the toys and games of years past through vintage advertising – for better and for worse!
