Nursery Favourites

I am hoping that somebody will be able to help me dating a thrifty find.I have googled but its not turning up anything...so anybody remember this (or anyone seen one ever???)
Its a 45rpm plastic flexi record with nursery rhymes on.
Its a promotional item from Heinz Baby Foods..not dated but Susan Baxter was the lady you needed to write to back then at the Baby Foods Advisory Service.
I wonder if its 1960's or 1970's??
Inside it asks if you have the newly revised booklet 'From Milk to Mixed Diet'..
As you can see the baby on the inside photo looks fairly vintage!
I picked it up in a charity shop a while ago..I thought I would frame it as I like the vintage nursery rhyme pictures..but when I found it the other day I decided I would try and find out when it was given out.
I wonder if it came free with Heinz baby milk (devout breastfeeder here so maybe I should boycott it lol!! - these days the milk companies are not allowed to promote in the same ways!!!)
Or were there 'bounty packs' of sorts in the 60's or 70's??
Hmm - maybe I need to ring or email Heinz to find out...only thought of that whilst I was typing duh!!!

Maybe one of you have a copy yourself, I'd love to know how they were issued x

Isn't that lovely. I'd bet anything it's 1960s. What a good find - would look fab framed.

I'd say that baby photo looks 60's at the latest.

Lovely find.
