Youth Talking Machine Kiddiphone
Children's gramophones, called "youth speaking machines" played shellac records with a diameter of 15, 18 or 30cm. The sound reproduction could be changed by needles of different strengths. The records were first pressed in the USA. The speaking machines were comparatively cheap to buy. Bing did business with the large number of records of nursery rhymes, Christmas carols, orchestral pieces, dances and marches. In the Pigmynette Records catalogue of 1927 there were over 100 records on offer.
