Oh goodness, haven't heard that in decades. Fair warning, that is terrifying for many kids.

Wielgus's albums are already listed.
Hadarshan has only one that I know of that's meant for kids, and I just added it. The others are humor albums, which is debatable if they qualify as kids albums.
Added Pruzansky's album

Does anyone have the covers of Benny Wielgus's albums? Tailor Made and A Match Made in Heaven. I have the tracks without the cover art, and I tried Googling it without luck...

At one point Yaffa Ganz had made some recordings of herself reading some of her books and they were available for download online from somewhere on the OU's website IIRC. I couldn't find a link for them this morning.

Moshke and the Monkey Business
Mayer and Me

And then there were the Torah Tapes, hundreds of stories, by various storytellers. I remember sitting for hours in front of the boombox (especially during sefira/3 weeks, when the only other one was the royal rescue) listening to them.

There's also "My Name is Emes" (a.k.a. "The Gimpel Tape") and "My Name is Simcha" by Rabbi Fischel Schachter and Rabbi Yonasan Schwartz.
(I don't know if this thread is only for albums with music - "My Name is Emes" doesn't have any songs, I'm not sure about "My Name is Simcha")

IINM, they are part of the "World of Middos" series and are listed in the wiki under that name.

Mayer Ben Dayan, who made Saved from the Statue and Out of Seder, is planning on releasing another album for Chanukah.

My kids love his albums.

New album from Rebbee Hill.

Interestingly, you can also buy the script, which has an interesting back cover.

Does anyone remember a story called "Curious Little Yoel" I think it was put out by Camp Munk or how I could get ahold of it?

2004 video, around 1:16

It's Yosef Wartelsky's production, so I imagine he has the original audio sound track - it's lip synced.
