I posted this on the For Sale or Trade board, but I thought there might be a slightly better chance somebody on this board could help!

I had the Sound Stripes kit which was discontinued at least a few years ago. It's a little hand held recorder that you use to record/play up to 30 seconds of sound on a little plastic strip that attaches to your scrapbook page. I went to play my recorder recently, and it didn't work. I changed the batteries and still nothing. I have several strips with my daughter's cute little preschool signing voice on them that I'll be so sad if I can't hear again!

Incredible long shot here, but does anybody have one of these recorders sitting around unused that you'd be willing to sell? I can't find any online since they've been discontinued for so long. If you have any ideas where else I might be able to get one, please let me know! Nothing has come up on ebay. Thanks so much.

It's late, so I probably wasn't thinking clearly...Now I'm wondering even if I find a new recorder, it probably won't work with my stripes, will it? The sound is probably stored in the recorder rather than on the stripe. Anyone know for sure how those things work??

Sorry I can't help, but I remember the product & I think it is worthwhile trying to replace the unit-- logically speaking, the layout-specific sounds you need MUST be in the stripe, otherwise it would have no purpose! The "player" is in the hand-held unit with the battery. I hope you find one and are able to enjoy your daughter's cuteness again.

Maybe someone's selling it on eBay?

Go over to the Scrapyard on facebook.
There are several thousand scrappers there, some are peas, some are not. I would be surprised if someone doesn't have one (or two).

I'm sorry to bring you bad news (and this late too), but the sound is definitely stored inside the recorder, not in the strips. Finding a new recorder won't restore the sound. I know this for sure because a good friend of mine was one of the original people involved with making/selling Sound Stripes.
