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.

      Thanks for letting me know, i replaced the link for a new one.

      • Jerry K says:

        Hey there. Love the site! Wanted to let you know a great number of the links stopped working. Your hosting service is having issues.

      • boutje777 says:

        Thanks for letting me know Jerry K. Can you specify which files you can’t download so i can look into it.

      • jerryk93 says:

        It’s obvious if you go look at the site what is wrong. I was just looking to see if you had anything new.

      • boutje777 says:

        That’s only the covers and other pictures because the site where i stored those have changed their policy. I have to store all pictures somewhere else. The download themselves are working.

        Hello! How can I post a question? I don’t see anywhere on this blog to post generally. I only see where to reply. Thanks!

      • boutje777 says:

        “Tori” You can ask a question in a comment, best is to scroll all the way down and leave a comment at the bottom.

      • Mike says:

        Can you tell me if you know of a childrens record called “I Like Holidays” i think it was in the 1970’s Thanks Mike

      • boutje777 says:

        *Mike* I am afraid not, i hope someone else can.

    • Shawn Boice says:

      Looking for Teddy Bear Picnic. It had ruplestilkskin and little red riding hood on it. I remember the narrator said she was going after a basket of FROOOD. We listened to it a 1000 times as a kid. Want to get it for my brother.

  2. Tim Griffith says:

    The file for Irwin The Disco Duck In The Navy isn’t working.

    • boutje777 says:

      Thanks for letting me know, that file was old, the downloadsite doesn’t even exist anymore. I replaced the link. Thanks to people like you i can keep my blogs up to date, because i don’t have the time to check all the files once in awhile for existence. So for everyone reading this, don’t hesitate to let me know if a link isn’t working anymore so i can take the proper action.

  3. Do you have the Young People Guide to Classical Music”/ This album was released on the Bluebird Label (of RCA) and featured Duo Pianists (I think) Whitmore and Lowe.

  4. Deborah Thomas says:

    I’ve been trying to find a record from either the 1970s or the 1980s with the children’s story, “The Old Witch,” written by Joseph Jacobs. I can’t remember if it was grouped with other stories, but it seems like it could have been. Have you heard of this one? We had a lot of fun listening to it. Thanks for your resources!

    • boutje777 says:

      Sorry to say i can’t help you with that one, i hope someone else can help you with this and i will pay attention to it when i am searching the internet.

    • boutje777 says:

  15. Dick York says:

    Great blog. Perhaps you or your viewers can help me out. I am trying to identify some children fairy tales ,I believe 78’s sold about 1970-75 that had Groucho Marx noted as the narrator. There were several that had his name was not credited on the record or sleeve, but immersed in the summaries, He was not noted on the main information. Can’t identify the record company he did them for. My daughter had several and he did a great job.

  16. Henro says:

    Hi boutje777,

    Thank you for all your amazing music and comics blogs! I found a couple of records that I had as a child that I forgot I had until I saw the covers; it was fun to hear them again.

    I found your blog while looking for “Greyfriars Bobby” on Disneyland records (I believe it was a Disney film in 1961). If you have it somewhere on the blog and I missed seeing it, please let me know. It was my brother’s favorite as a child. Here is the cover:

    Thank you for any help and again for your amazing blog.

    • boutje777 says:

      You are welcome, i am sorry to say that the record you mentioned is not on the blog, i will look out for it and when i find it i will place it on the blog offcourse.

      At least here is a little something.

      • Henro says:

        Thank you for your kind response! If I happen to locate it elsewhere, I will let you know.

  17. Monica says:

    Looking for a record, it was about good habits/manners she would tell a story then sing a song about the story. I remember one part of a song “a ring belongs around your finger not around the tub” another story was about a mom calling a child he ignored her but she wanted to share his favorite dessert with him

  18. Jennifer Center says:

    Hi my name is Jennifer and my father was an advent childrens record collector and he had a copy for every copy just in case one broke his records where like his baby and he died a few years ago and I am trying to downsize his collection he has well over 2000 childrens records in excellent condition and if you are interested in them or want more details please email at

  19. Tom Teresi says:


    I am searching for a set of 78RPM children’s records (1956) that accompanied the “Magic Mirror”. There are 20 Red Raven movie records in total. Do you happen to have any for sale? Email me and I can send a photo of the mirror and record.

    Looking forward to your responses!!


  20. Becky Lynn Cunningham-Reid says:

    Looking for an album from the 80’s I believe. It was called something like “Children’s Holiday Songs” It had a teddy bear on the cover waving an American flag possibly. It contained a song called “Trick or Treat” All songs were done by a children’s chorus. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    • boutje777 says:

      I hope someone else can help you, because i am afraid i can’t. But i will look out when i am searching.

  21. Richard Claypool says:

    This is totally awesome! I just found Bambie, remember it from when I was a wee lad.

  22. Mark Kirker says:

    Great Collection! I’ve been trying to locate a version of Snow White and Rose Red which at one point has the children sing “Spring, Spring, hey-ho it’s Spring! What a truely wonderful thing is Spring…” and a song about polishing the copper kettle. Goes something like “make the dear old copper kettle shine, while it’s very very old, it can shine like gold, if we rub a dub dub rub a dub….” Does this sound familiar? Do you by chance have a copy or any clues as to who produced/released/featured on it? It may help my search!

    • boutje777 says:

      I am afraid i can’t help you with this, i hope some of the followers of this blog can. Did you try to use some of your clues in Youtube searching ? You will be amazed what comes up sometimes.

      • BrendaH says:

        Mark, I did a test drive and I have .wav files of both sides of this record (I want to convert them to MP3). I also want to clean up the album. I didn’t know if the turn table/converter would actually work. But at least I’ve got one scratchy copy recorded 🙂 . @Boutje, where can I send them to you (and a pic of “my” album cover)? If it goes will, I’ll be digitizing more children’s albums (I just got a box from my brother). Brenda

    • BrendaH says:

      Mark Kirker,
      I don’t know what shape it’s in but I have that album: on the front: something, “Wonderland Snow White and Rose Red with Barbara Leigh and Hermione Harvey. also The Goose Girl with Celia Johnson. The stories dramatized with music and full cast”
      On the back, it says RLP 1472 Wonderland Records are produced by Bill Grauer Productions Inc, 235 West 46th Street, New York, 36, N.Y.”

      My dad’s writing on the front says it was a present to my sister, Christmas of 1966.

      • boutje777 says:

        Thanks for the comment.

        It must be this one.

        Now i know what to look for when i am searching for files to download.

      • BrendaH says:

        Re: Rose Red & Snow White and the Goose Girl: My jacket is different and has no track list but they look like they’re the songs I remember. I’m in the last 3 weeks of the semester or I’d offer to see if a) my turn table still works (I think it’s got a USB port) and b) if the record still plays, upload the tracks to you. I’ll check back in Dec after finals. Brenda

      • Mark Kirker says:

        Hi Brenda, How is the easiest way for you to send them? dropbox or some other web link, or email? any way suits me.

  23. Sue Hartman says:

    I’m looking for a recording about Native Americans and the coming of settlers. One song includes the words “Many moons long ago Indian brave live in forest, hunt deer, catch fish…many buffalo.” Another about railroads’ being built: “40 miles of track and you get an aching back on the O-O-O-O Ohio Line.” My family and I listened to this record in the 70s.

  24. arthur says:


    Is may is going to be a month with or without?

    Many thanks for you great collection you share with us.

  25. Joe Turner says:

    Hi, my memory is shot after 40+ years but I remember having some records as a kid where each one began with a little whistled figure and then the sounds of walking, a door opening, I think maybe the sea or waves, and then a story. One may have been Andy & the Lion, one may have been Bread & Jam for Frances, but I recall the intro more than anything else (and of course I could be conflating the intro from one label’s records with the content of other labels’ records). Does this ring a bell for anyone?

  26. john magierski says:

    many years ago the was a song about a dad singing to his new baby son…about how proud he was etc i think it was on a rca orthophonic 45…early 1950s…i did hear it once on tv on the sonny fox wonderama show…im 62 and im still looking for it….please help….

    • john magierski says:

      i as hoping for some kind of reply by now i still havent found the recording..

      • boutje777 says:

        I did some searching but the input is just to little to find good results, if only you remembered the title or artist.

  27. Michael Murphy says:

    When I was growing up (I’m 44), there was a record I had that had some catchy tunes like, “A knife and a fork, a bottle and a cork. That’s the way you spell New York.”
    I’m wondering you know where I can find it, again.

    • boutje777 says:

      That song is from Dillinger, Cocaine in my brain. You can find it many times at Youtube. I kinda hate that song, because someone made a dutch translation where it says “where are you going Leen ?”, offcourse in dutch, my name is Leen, and everyone i knew was asking when they saw me “Hey Leen, where are you going ?”.And offcourse “Spell Amsterdam for me Leen”. That lasted for months.

  28. Tim Griffith says:

    Is there problem with website as everything has blank with sign saying update your account to enable third party hosting. Please let me know.

    • boutje777 says:

      That is because Photobucket changed their policy for hosting pictures. I have to upgrade my account for 400 a year or so. It only effects the pictures, the downloads are working normal. I have to upload all pictures somewhere else and make new links for them, that goes for all my blogs so that will take some time to clear things out.

  29. Jackie says:

    Can you help me? My twin sister and I used to go to sleep to an LP record during the sixties. We cannot remember it’s name but it featured the “Sandman” who told children’s story’s such as a little girl who didn’t want to go to bed. And another about sleeping under the stars while out on a covered-wagon journey!!..that’s all we can remember, and we have been searching for this album for 30 years!!..can you help?..🙂

  30. Tim Griffith says:

    You said downloads was working but hard to find album as there no album photos to look at. Now speedoeter thing is now giant squares taking up all catergory where no little squares for each album to click on. I love your site since found it last year & hope things get clear up soon.

    • boutje777 says:

      The little pictures on the left hand site i can still see, maybe it’s your browser ? I agree it’s not the way it is ment to be and i understand you miss the pictures, but i am working on it. I have to upload all pictures again and make new links, and i have alot of blogs. And it’s summer holiday, i hope eveything is back to normal next month. Can someone else respond if they still see the little pictures on the left hand site or not ? Or else i begin with making these visible again.

  31. boutje777 says:

    I made new links for all the small covers at the left. Everything is visible now i hope. Let me know if you see a cross or another error somewhere. I am starting with making new links for all individual pages also, that will take some time but i hope next month everything is visible again.

  32. Arthur says:


    For my side all the small pictures of the main page are working and some of the single tilte are not but most of them are working
    all download link i’ve tried are working!!
    i’m browsing with firefox
    i hope that can help

    • boutje777 says:

      Thanks for letting me know, i will continue to replace all pictures at the downloadpages and try to make an update before the month is over.

  33. Tim Griffith says:

    Pictures are back on main page. In Christmas 1 big gray square & in Davy Crockett there 1. That only ones see.

  34. Tim Griffith says:

    Don’t know which ones as go down Christmas 1 covers in middle big gray thing under others covers show as same way in Davy Crockett look like covering up maybe 3 or 4 covers.

  35. Arthur says:


    Is that going to be possible to have new records?


    And thank you very much for this amazing site

    • boutje777 says:

      Hello. yes that is possible, i am very busy at the moment with all sorts of things and my regular job also is kinda busy these days. I do my best to make an update this week.

  36. Janine says:

    I found your website as I was searching for an approximately 40+ year old choral performance musical I was in as a kid. It was entitled something like the “The Twelve Moons” and was about the settlement of the west. There were songs about a magic whale, the Ohio Line (railroad), and several others. I found this website by typing in the beginning of the performance which went “Many moons long ago, Indian brave live in forest and…hunt deer, grow corn, skin beaver and Indian have big sky, laughing streams, tall juniper much land, many buffalo many moons ago. There are so many categories to choose from here – can you please guide me as to which one has that performance or at least the song I mention above? Thanks so much!

    • boutje777 says:

      I am afraid not, i don’t know which songs are on which records, there are well over 1000 records. Best chance is somewhere in movie and television or songs for children. Maybe someone else can help you out.

  37. boutje777 says:

    I am finally ready with making all covers and pictures visible again.
    Please let me know if you find still a missing picture somewhere.
    Offcourse for not working links also.

  38. boutje777 says:

    In between all my other work i started a new blog about old children books, with also many golden books.

    Might be interesting also for some that have interest in old records

    It is still under construction but every day i will place more and more.

    You can visit with this link.

    Children Books

  39. boutje777 says:


    Today i placed 32 Audiobooks, you can find them almost at the bottom of the sidebar.
    You have to unpack the file with Winrar or another sortlike program.
    You can just click on the executable and turn the pages with the mouse in most cases.
    I think when it’s open it will point itself.

    I am afraid this will be the last update this year, with december coming it’s always a busy time, yohoho. I still have more then 100 records to place but they must all be sorted out and prepared for the blog, i will be doing that whenever i find time and i hope te begin updating them beginning next year.

  40. arthur says:


    Thanks very much for that great new section

    And Merry Christmass to you

    See you next Year

  41. kman says:

    Any idea where these songs originally came from? I’m looking for the original sources. They were put onto a cassette tape for me sometime in the late 70s, but the songs themselves sound like they could be from the 50s or 60s. Some of them are more story than song. Here’s the audio I grabbed from the cassette:
    0:00 – pirates of penzance
    1:30 – down by the station
    3:14 – three blind mice
    4:38 – A Frog He Would A-wooing Go
    6:12 – the story of hansel and gretel
    8:02 – three bears are we
    9:35 – (another train song)

  42. Nedra Jumper says:

    I’m looking for a record we had back in the 50s that has a man telling a story about dolls. He’s acting out playing with dolls. They take a nap, time to take a bath, go to the store. It was treasured by us but seems to have disappeared. It’s either a 33 1/2 or 78. Has a picture of the story teller on the front cover. Has anyone have a recollection of this record. Can’t even remember the artists name.

  43. John Thomas says:

    I have an original 78 record of “The Big Rock Candy Mountain”, and ” The Ol’ Chisholm
    Trail” by the Voco Rangers that I’d like to sale. For more info E-Mail me at or call me at 310/ 465-5622

  44. Scott says:

    Awesome collection! I was curious to know if you have the 4-side LP version of The Hobbit; or the 40-minute (38?) release of Return of The King? Thank you.

  45. i want make same this blog because it is very beautiful blog and want do it so please can you tell me how you do it?

    • boutje777 says:

      Thanks, but i am afraid i can’t tell you in detail how to make one yourself. Just make one on wordpress with the help provided and it will be ok. I am not so good in making blogs myself but i learned while doing it.

  46. Jean Ludwig says:

    I’m looking for old Doctor Don records. Have any?

  47. Shannon says:

    I`m looking for “The Funny Family“. I used to listen to it 35 yrs ago.

  48. Joe D says:

    Where can I find Babar recordings narrated by Frank Luther circa 1940 to 1942?

    • boutje777 says:

      Under Stories For Children, scroll down, about halfway, it’s next to Tubby the Tuba, that is one Babar from Frank Luther.

  49. Linus F. Didier says:

    I just discovered your amazing website and found a record from my childhood – Rosemary Rice Wonderful World of Children’s Songs. It brought a tear to my eye.

    Thank you for the great work and effort you put into posting these amazing children’s albums.

  50. Jen says:

    When I was a child my grandparents had a few old records they used to play for me. Peter and the wolf was one, as was Musical Mother Goose, but the third I simply cannot remember the name of.

    It used a framing device for the stories on it with a hallway with doors? Each door led to a “different adventure” and I remember it would describe the doors which were all different colours and sizes.

    Anyone got any clue what on earth this was?
