I remember the original versions of these. There was a bigger one where the cassette windows looked like eyes, in fact that one starred in the original Toy Story movie, I always wanted one of those. But I usually got other brand ones instead. I loved playing with cassette players as a kid. Didn't get a video camera until much later though I did borrow one sometimes.

They still are fairly expensive in the used market when in good condition.

I've seen them for sale a few times while in Vancouver. I've never seen the hipsters eat those things up with that kind of money.
Never in my life was I expecting that it was cheaper for me to buy an HVC Trinicon camera than one of those. Crazy, I tall ya!

Word up!

Not only is the real thing better, it's probably cheaper in most cases. Even those willing to sacrifice quality to save a few bucks in the short run don't have an excuse for buying the most obvious fake I've seen that Chinese fat cats have had the nerve to dump on us.

Hard to wrap one's mind over a kiddee camcorder...W/THAT little "Playpretty", you had something that pretty much out classed even the mighty RCA..At least, up til Summer, 1956..

Vintage Fisher Price Portable Cassette player from 1984 in EUC! The buttons work but no sound comes out I tried multiple cassettes & it was the same every time. Very clean & in excellent condition!
At least they are honest it doesnt work right but really WHY ARE THEY SELLING IT LIKE THAT??
