RECARD- The Record Playing Gift Card
By: Josh Cocciardi 2/27/15
From across the pond this greeting card looks a lot like a record because it is; a record; a RECARD.
A simple concept turned into a bloody brilliant reality and a unique gift to anyone still obsessing over that vinyl sound and well, everyone else too; everyone will like this gift. E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E, or at least me, so if anyone wanted to send me one of these I would love it.
You exclaim, "Oh no! I don't have a record player." No problem says RECARD, it comes with everything you need, the savvy design includes a flat packed cradle arm with a needle built right in. The sound is trumpeted aloud for all to hear, if placed on top of a cup or mug, RECARD claims you can amplify the sound a wee bit (Scotland is the UK, I'm not just confusingly racist) while also making it easier to play. Why is making it easier to play important? Well, there are no motors or batteries included because they aren't needed. By simply turning the record by hand your ears will enjoy a surprisingly British birthday wish and a charming toe tapping tune.
My sincerest congratulations on such a delightful and whimsical idea. I hope these guys get a hold of someone like urban outfitters, it would 'kill it' as part of their knick knack and record section of every store and of course online as well.
Quick bit, in case you were ever curious about what is actually included in the UK, Britain, England, British Isles, etc. because quite frankly, it is confusing-check out this powerful venn-diagram where it is very obvious a picture is worth 1000 words.
