This blog is dedicated to old children’s records. You will find many children related records.

All is converted into 1 mp3 and can be listened to with every mp3-player. The quality is pretty good overall.
Most of them is from the time-area 1950-1980.
It’s not with any commercial purposes, just to share old children related vinyl with others.

I found all these on the internet, from different sources : forums, sites, usenet, archive, torrents.

I did not record them just collected everything.

When everything is done there will be well over 1000 records on this blog.
Educational, cartoons, music, stories, cowboys, heroes and other themes.

Click the little covers at the sidebar to access the page for the information and download.

Thanks to the recorders and original uploaders.

    I am looking for a record album I had as a child in the 70’s called The Story of Old Mack the Golden Fire Truck or (Engine). It was about a little boy name Michael that wanted to buy a fire engine from the fire department. It had been taken out of service after serving many years and was being replaced by a new truck. Any help PLEASE!!!

    I am looking for a record with story book. It starts with old man telling story and adventures of a boy and young dog (snuffy-scrappy or the like) and I think him and his friends get trapped by trolls or something HOBBIT-ish. and of course the old man is the boy all grown up.

    I am looking for a song where the words in the refrain go something like “The great big bell went bong bong. The middle bell went ding dong ding. The little little bell went ting-a-ling-a-ling.” If anyone knows the song, information about song title and where I can find it will be greatly appreciated.

    Hi, asked this a long time ago, asking again. I grew up in the early ’70s and recall a few records (7″ 45pm as I recall) that all began with an intro that featured someone whistling the tune for “olly olly oxen free” and then the sounds of walking and (I think?) various doors opening and different sound effects. Sadly I can’t recall the stories.

    Late 1960s I had a boxed set record of children’s music. All I remember is the cover, it was a photograph of a very pretty little girl, in a princess type dress, light blue. I was so mesmerized by the photo, I wanted to be her, lol. Anyone?

    I am trying to find a recorded album from the 70s about a little girl who can’t fall asleep on Christmas Eve. A princess or a fairy is talking her to sleep in a very soothing lilting voice. I know it’s vague… Please help me find this record!

    Looking for an album I listened to as a child in the 60s, though it seemed dated to me even then, about a child who can’t guess what special day it is today. So he keeps guessing different holidays and they sing a song to that holiday (like when he guesses Columbus Day they sing “Christopher Columbus didn’t have a compass…”) but then tell him that no its not that day. Finally he gives up and they tell him its his birthday to which they all sing Happy Birthday.

    • C Rourke says:

      I actually just found it after realizing its from the 50’s (1952). In case anyone else is interested, its Come to the Party, 12 Holiday Songs for Every Month of the Year.

    Y’know there are a couple of wonderful children’s records made in the 1950s with music by Moondog and nursery rhymes spoken by Julie Andrews and Martyn Green. They are both up on Youtube at these two addresses: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bAaRV7hLFKA and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0KSXqKO9YU

    I am trying to find a record from when I was a child.. It is of narrated childrens stories and has one on it that is about a dog that was a scruffy stray and he goes into a building with a dog show and they all turn their noses up at him and send him away but then he smells smoke and alerts them to a fire and becomes a hero!
    Anyone know of it?? Or know where I might find it?

    I’m trying to find a children’s teaching album I believe was called in part “Folk Songs and Ballads”. I think it came out in the 60’s. Some of the songs were “John Henry”, “My Little Mohee”, “There Were Three Crows”, and “Billy Boy”. The latter two songs were sung in two different versions, one English and one American. Can anyone help me, please? Thank you.

    I am looking for a story album from the 50s or 60s which had a story about Heeby Jeeby the hyena who lost his mum. He meets a succession of animals in the forest to whom he is compared to see if that is his mum – memorably the hippo does a swan dive to try and make Heeby Jeeby laugh to see if he is a hyena. The album had another story about a ramshackle house in a row of houses – the album had a green cover with a picture of the old house on it. Any clues to the title of the album would be really appreciated.

    Our kids love a 1970’s song with the words Beulah the Dinosaur. Have you ever heard of it? Would love it for our grandkids.

    I have been trying to find a record from the 1950s. It is a recording of Phillipe Halsman’s book, The Story of Piccoli, read by Siobhan McKenna. Any help would be appreciated.
