Oh, you need to get this. I have a few now because when I see one I am compelled to buy it... This is a micro-phonograph player... really. It plays these tiny thin one sided flexy-style plastic records that are glued to these printed cards. The cards give information about what the record is playing... In this case, these are all bird songs and each card tells you a bit about each bird as well as having a beautiful Audubon-ish illustration of said bird. They really are amazing. This one comes with a mess of packets of card/records too so BUY NOW!!!
