Vintage Kids' Stories & Music From The Kiddie Record King

hippo_xmas.jpgThis looks awesome. I remember The 500 Hats Of Bartholomew Cubbins and I Want A Hippopotamus for Christmas from my grandmother's house. Now, "copyright permitting," I can get a vintage copy and/or a CD of such long-lost children's books & music.

The Kiddie Record King has over 12,000 titles in his collection, so start remembering. [via boingboing]
[update: DT reader Sarah reminded me of the, too.]


"I Want A Hippopotamus for Christmas" is on my top 5 favorite christmas songs. Although a modern classic, you can pick up Dr. Demento's Greatest Christmas Novelty songs (or something like that) on CD. It includes alot of great 50-80s Christmas songs that really aren't played anymore. A one degree of freedom from that CD is that I have Weird Al's DVD playing and the video from "Christmas at Ground Zero" is on it. Enjoy the website

And you can get 52 great kid's records (well, by the end of the year you can), all art included, for free from basic hip here:
We've been collecting them all year, ostensibly for the kid herself when she's old enough.
