So what do you do when you want a record player but you don’t want to dedicate shelf space to another gadget? Well, if you like vintage vans, the Record Runner Portable VW Bus is the answer to all of your record player wishes. This little bus will play your record as it completes its run around the vinyl.
This looks like a toy car but for the price tag, it’s not toy. It is modeled after the beloved vintage VW Bus from the 1970s that has never really died down in popularity. At first glance, it just looks like a model but the real secret is underneath it.
There’s a pin under it and it will play your records as it rolls around. It runs on 2 AA batteries and has built in volume control. It will play your records but it’s not recommended to use with your pristine vinyl. But those throw away records? Sure, why not give it a little spin. Comes in two colors, green and purple. The Record Runner Portable VW Bus is $80.
