Little Wonder records and Bubble Books were advertised in various ways throughout their lifetime, including in magazines, catalogs, newspapers, and even on the records themselves.- Some of these advertisements were targeting retail customers and others were targeting business customers ("trade") who would buy the books and records to sell to customers.- Examples of all of these kinds of advertisements are shown below.

If you have any advertisements to sell, or have scans or photos you would like to add to this site, please contact me.
