Mighty Tiny Smallest Record Player
Long before the Renault Sound Truck, there was Mighty Tiny, quite possibly the world’s smallest record player, or at least during the 1960s. Put simply, it consists of a miniature turntable with a built-in speaker that could play tiny 2.25-inch records.



How does it work? A small needle makes contact with the record when the top is closed, thus enabling the record start to spinning. Dozens of 15-20 second records from notable artist were released in the 1960s including Hawaiian Surf Ride (Hula Jet Jive Five), Rock in the Afternoon (The Madmen), Laughing Trumpet (Musical Squares), Circus Clown (The Famous Grand Entrance Band), Honey Tones (The Harmonettes), Turkey in the Straw (Banjo Pete), and Flamenco Fiesta (The Spanish Band). This eventually lead to the development of Mini-8, a variant of the 8-Track released in 1969, designed to compete with the cassette tape.
