Stairway to Heaven: 3D Printing Fisher-Price Records

For kids who grew up in the 70s and 80s, there’s a very good chance your first music player was none other than the Fisher-Price Record Player. That vintage, jangly sound has a special spot in many of our hearts as it played such hit songs as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Humpty Dumpty and, don’t forget London Bridge.

Now, UK-based Fred Murphy has created some new tunes for the vintage machines, using a CNC machine to mill records which play still vintage, yet far more modern hit songs: Stairway to Heaven and the Star Wars theme. His talented reworking of the songs using the Fisher-Price machine’s limited notes is definitely worth a listen (see videos below).

Want to create some of your own records and start jamming out? Murphy created an Instructable for creating your own records using a CNC machine, and understanding that many of us have better access to 3D printers, recently created new instructions for printing out your own disks. Serious retro cool.
