In celebration of children’s book week, discover our children’s collection of recordings featuring stories, lullabies, nursery rhymes and more.
This collection of children’s music was produced mostly during the 1940s and 1950s, a time when vinyl replaced hard shellac as the basic material used in the making of phonograph records. The innovation of vinyl allowed manufactures to produce kid-friendly recordings that could be handled without adult supervision. These recordings became an extremely popular form of entertainment for children in the days before families had television sets.
Here are the Recorded Sound Archives we have over 480 children’s recordings for you to choose from.
Discover our Superstorm Sandy Restoration Project which features over 380 children’s recordings that were donated by Peter Muldavin as a result of Hurricane Sandy, along with our Vintage children’s collection with over 130 recordings for you to choose from!
This was featured last month in the Recorded Sound Archives' Blog.
