The Talking Record for Girls


I'm not sure if this is useful or kind of creepy. This record was meant to be played by little girls to assist them in "thinking and speaking". It starts out with a friendly woman's voice saying, "Hello, I'm Rosemary, your talking record." and she goes on by asking questions and leaving spaces in between for the child to answer. I'm not quite sure when this record came out, but judging by the pictures I'm guessing possibly late 50's-early 60's. Therefore there's a lot of talk asking about how many dolls the child has and which one's her favorite. Rosemary also throws in a few poems and songs to liven things up a bit. I read there's a "Talking Record for Boys" as well. I assume they talk about playing Cowboys and Indians and collecting Army Men or something. Anyway, hope you like this!

I used to listen to "The talking Record for Boys" when I was a young lad. My copy had a chunk missing

After listening to this record I can tell you that the content (stories/songs etc) is literally identical to the 'Boys' version.

Wow, I know this post is two years old. But I was just searching for any info on this record. I just found it at the local Goodwill for $1. It interested me as a record collector and speech therapist. But I do agree, it's a bit creepy.

Creepy is good. Actually, this one doesn't sound that way at all to me, but if a boy's version really was very similar to this, then THAT'S the creepy one and very much so!

Please somebody..... upload the Talking record for boys onto this site! I would love to hear that! My brother and I had that little gem back in the day.

According to the catalog# and comparing it to others I'd say this record was released in 1961/62.
