Up for auction is a vintage 1971 Kenner Close N Play phonograph record player with the original box. This child's record player features a close n play design, that allowed children to simply place any 45 rpm record on the platter turn on the unit and close the lid to automatically play the record and when finished, they would repeat the steps and so on. T is no electrical speaker, music is simply heard through a mylar cone shape device that picks up sound vibrations that is audibly heard, hence t is no volume control. This record player, however operates on 3-D cell batteries which runs the motor, that rotates the platter. I have placed batteries in the unit and the platter rotates and the battery is in good condition with no corrosion (sorry no 45 rpms to try). The overall condition of the record player is good, has original needle, no cracks, the purple & orange cardboard layered inside of the player has some creases, but no rips or tares. The outside label displaying Close N Play has a few, what looks to be pen marks, but few and the original box is in fair condition, creased, still colorful and displayable.
