Show 'N Tell record players

From about 1973 to 1975, I wore mine out. It was a record player with a picture screen on the front, and had a slot where you would insert a strip of slide pictures. As the record played, the slide show would correspond with the story. I had a couple of dozen records with the picture slides. I guess you could say it was kind of like a 70's-era DVD player for kids. I loved shutting the shades and making my room as dark as possible, and sitting down for a show. Good times.
With the exception of my Fisher Price Castle, this ranks up there as one of the best.
