Back to the basics

Do you see this happy little face?  This boy has been an old soul since the day he was born.  He’s always preferred using his imagination over screen time…and it was one of those things that we never even had to encourage.  So naturally, when I mentioned to this old little soul of mine that he would be getting his very own record player, he was pretty pumped.

There’s just something about the timeless sound of a vinyl record player that can’t be replaced.  I think Knox already feels that at his young little age which is just so stinkin’ cool and makes me even more proud to be his momma.

Not sure if you were aware, but is KILLING it right now in all departments, including their selection of vinyl bluetooth record players (and records). How cool is this teal green Victrola record player?!  There is a built-in portable suitcase which makes it super convenient to travel with or to just take it from room to room.  It also has three different speeds so that you can adjust the sound accordingly. It’s under $40 and free delivery as always! also offers a wide variety of brand new vinyl records, all at super low prices.  I made sure to snag a few records that brought me back to my high school days…this Foo Fighter album happens to be one of Knox’s faves.

My five year old maaay have gotten his love for nostalgic things from his momma. 😉  After we snagged this record player, I purchased a few brand new vinyl’s from and then hit up an old record store for some oldies to add to our collection.

My suggestion when your kids are going wild?  Start with an affordable record player like this one from and introduce them to some oldies.  I have a feeling they will LOVE getting to lower that needle into the grooves as they listen to the scratchy sound of their favorite vinyl.

Let’s try to slow down a bit and set the tone for this next generation.  Let’s go back to the basics and teach our kids that sometimes the best things in life are the simplest.
