Do you still have Fisher Price’s toy record player from the 70s? Instructables member Fred27 figured out a way to play pretty much any tune you want on the toy, thanks to a bit of code and the wonders of 3D printing.

Fred27 initially printed his first batch of Fisher Price records using a CNC machine, but because his first Instructable became quite popular, he decided to write a second one that involves 3D printing. As Fred27 said, 3D printers are cheaper than CNC machines, and you can even outsource the printing for a relatively cheap price.

Here’s one of Fred27’s custom records, a short copy of the Star Wars theme. This particular record was made via CNC, but the 3D printed records should work exactly the same.

Head to Instructables to figure out how you can have print your own Fisher Price record. You can also buy Fred27’s records on Shapeways. As for the record player, you can find some on eBay and Amazon. I wonder if it’s also possible to scan and make .STL files out of vinyl records. That could be a great way of preserving them.
