Doers anyone know when this Bongo Drum record player was manufactured? I picked up a long time ago, and have never restored it. Guess it doesn't matter if it works since it is more of a toy than a record player.

No info, but a listing of another one I found on the net.....Best guess is mid-late '50's to early '60's.

I missed that! They sold it for double what I paid so I didn't do bad. It would have been a cool gift under the Christmas tree.

I was given mine Christmas 1958 in Albany, New York and still have it. Was wondering what it may be worth today? I have saved many of my early 60's transistor radios also. Everyone seems to have had them. Small and convenient to carry. Thank you for the add to this group.

Thank you for the date of 1958. I got it cheap, and I like looking at it. Now I don't think I will fix it.
