    Plaid Stallions Show 'N" Tell



    Gabriel's Show N Tell came out when I was ten years old, so I'm not surprised I didn't notice it back then, I was all about action figures at that point.

    A really novel approach to the "Book and Record" format I loved, I can't imagine it had a long life at retail with affordable VCRs looming closer and closer....For more Fashion Mockery and 70's toy love visit us at Plaid Stallions.com

    I had one of those! I remember the one disc I played over and over was Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves. The artwork was pretty good; like a really well done water color. I must have played it to death.

    I docent at a museum that has one of these, but it doesn't run anymore (most of the items there still function). I'd love to see how it worked in person. The idea does make sense as a kind of neat variant record player, and it was definitely a relic of a pre-VCR era.

    That's pretty neat. But Raggedy Ann better watch out...I think that cat is about to hurl a hairball.

    I almost bought one of these at a flea market once. Cool concept. I think these were released twice, once w/ Gabriel and once w/ Child Guidance? Is that right?
