Talking View-Master is a variant of the popular View-Master toy, which combines three-dimensional images with a pre-recorded soundtrack. In the first version, released in 1970, a small transparent phonograph disc was attached to the back of a standard paper View-Master reel. In the second version, released in 1984, a plastic cartridge held both the picture reel and the phonograph disc separately. The third version, released in 1997, used digital sound.
