Label of 5½ inch Kiddyphone record

Kiddyphone was a 1920s United Kingdom record label which issued small-sized gramophone records aimed at young children.[1][2]

The label was owned by the Crystalate Gramophone Record Manufacturing Company Ltd., which also manufactured Imperial records.[1] Some Kiddyphone releases were edited versions of recordings already issued on the Imperial label - this was also the case with Kiddyphone's sister label Mimosa.[2]

Kiddyphone records were issued in three different sizes (7 inch, 5½ inch, and 6 inch) during the label's lifetime.[1] As with many records of this type, the recording artists are not always credited on Kiddyphone record labels.
