Playhouse Records is the record label founded by Jim Copp and Ed Brown in 1958 to release albums of children's music. Over the course of 13 years, Copp and Brown wrote, recorded, designed, produced and promoted nine LPs of their own material and continued to run the label until 1978 when Ed Brown died from pancreatic cancer. The label resumed production and distribution of Copp and Brown's material on cassette and CD under the direction of Ted and Laura Leyhe in the 1990s.
