Because Reverend Spooky is totally The Man on 1/6 music subjects, and the Radio Kings rock, I wanted to give him a complete answer with a better pic of the Running Press compared side by side to a couple of other 1/6 turntables I have, that I'm trying to find in my stuff. Reverend, if that delay made it seem I was ignoring your straight-forward question, I apologize.

Reverend Spooky was inquiring about the Running Press Table, though he may have already got one by now. Anyway for general interest here’s a better pic. $12.95 US. It comes with 3 LPs and each one plays a different 30 seconds of music, which doesn’t mean much to me for picture-taking purposes. I erroneously assumed they would actually spin (which would show as a nice blur in a pic) but they don’t. I think the turntable itself works in scale but the actual records look too big in the figure’s hand.#2
From the World’s Smallest” Series, @$8 US. Unquestionably it is too small. Otherwise it would be just perfect. Nicely detailed. The record spins, a “strobelight” lights up. I am trying to remember if anybody ever made a record player, for kids maybe, that was smaller and played 45 rpms only. If so this could be a 1/6 version of that. It spins fast enough for 45 rpm.#3
Rolling Stones Portable Record Player ornament. I have this but I can’t find it. Fun! It spins, plays Gimme Shelter. I was torn about converting it from a Rolling Stones promo item to a more generic portable record player. SO I made a plain cardboard insert for the lid, and put white tape on the front. Now I can have it both ways – or I could, if I could just find it. I believe they made similar ornaments for Elvis Presley, maybe others.#4
This is one that I don’t have, I wish I did. It was a Hallmark Christmas Ornament in 2016 but it was sold out everywhere before Christmas, so I couldn’t find one when I got my general run of Ornaments for 1/6 on Boxing Day that year. Like the Running Press it detects different “records,” these being Christmas-sy. Scale seems good but I haven't had one in hand.
