1978 Dejay Record Player Catalog

I’m really happy vinyl is back in what few record stores I can find these days, that’s why I love this 1978 catalog from Dejay featuring a variety of licensed children’s record players.

Disco, Holly Hobbie and the Superfriends, it’s a grouping that won’t happen in any other decade….

    Oh. My. LORD!!! I got a Dejay record player for Christmas in 1983 when I was four years old – the Playmates one from the catalog you linked to in the post. The cool thing is that 32 years later, not only do I still have the record player in my possession, but it still works! I plug it in every now and then, mostly to play one of my Fleetwood Mac records that I collected as an adult, but I also still have some of the kiddie records from when I was little, like Sesame Street, Strawberry Shortcake, Berenstain Bears, and I had lots of Peter Pan brand records too (my favorite was "In a Little Red Schoolhouse").

    Thanks for letting me reminisce!

    I love that the ad has shown via the dispensed hat, glasses and tie that Superman has shed his alter ego to listen to this record player. That Clark Kent is way too much of a turkey to disco!
