Wanted: Primitive Technology

Does anybody have any old cassette tapes lying around the house, especially children's ones? (Sesame Street and Muppets are my personal faves!) Lysa brought home a Powerlink device from school which enables us to plug in the blender, CD player etc. and she can turn them on and off by smacking a big red button. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, it doesn't work with CDs, only tapes... which gave me the opportunity to explain to Mattias what this strange looking thing called a cassette tape is - it makes music! Wow! The look of wonder and disbelief on his face made me feel very, very old :) So if you have any old tapes lying around (preferably not heavy metal), we would love to listen to something other than the five she's been playing over and over and over and over again. (Though Big Bird's Greatest Hits IS awesome! I'm also really enjoying Sharon, Lois and Bram's Dance Tunes.)
