Every generation has that moment where they stop, take a step back and realize how old they’ve become. For quite a few people and at least a couple of generations, that moment might come in this video. The original Sony Walkman was released in 1979 and the way we listened to music changed forever.

Still, chances are quite a few of you still have a tape player sitting in a closet, maybe alongside a shoebox or 12 full of old tapes. This was true for one mom, who brought them out and filmed her kids as they struggled to grasp a music player that requires you to do something besides hit play.
