Searching for storybooks with audio cassettes (late '70s)
Well, add me to the list of folks seeking info on the fairytale collections they had as children (looking for Terps's book got me kind of excited :) )!
For me, it was a set of smallish, hardcover storybooks with coordinating audio tapes--one story to a book/tape. The only story I remember for certain is "The Elves and the Shoemaker," although there may have been a version of "Aladdin" or another Arabian Nights tale. The thing that made these distinctive is that they were color-coordinated; each book was a bold, bright color, and its matching tape was the same--hot pink, orange, turquoise, lime green, brown. You couldn't miss them.
I was born in 1974, and had a brother three years older--so these would date from some time around the mid to late 1970s, I'd think. I want to say they came as a set, but of course I have nothing but assumption to back that up. My mother sold them at a garage sale when I was about 8, and I've been curious about what they were for the last few years.
Does this ring any bells for anyone?
