Fisher-Price’s toy record player from the 1970s has gotten an update thanks to the fascinating world of 3D printing and the folks over at Instructables. It’s easy to find the classic Fisher-Price record player online– but before, you were stuck listening to children’s songs like ‘Humpty Dumpty’ and ‘Twinkle-Twinkle Little Star’ on the device. Now, thanks to 3D printing, you can be your own music producer and create custom records to play on the iconic toy.

Instructables has provided a handy guide for creating 3D printed records including music editing software with the source code along with pre-generated music tracks of the Star Wars theme and the songs ‘You Are My Sunshine’ and ‘Stairway to Heaven’ for free. Instructables’ author, fred27, invites readers to toy around with the code and create their own records. Don’t worry if you don’t own a 3D printer, there are several places online that can help print your record and deliver a physical copy for you to play on Fisher-Price’s nostalgic player.
