"Cute" Synthesizer Music?

I recently purchased the reissue of Mort Garson Plantasia and I love it.

I was listening with my 8 year old daughter who loved it too and it made me realize that I don't really have a lot of "cute" synth music. Most of the synth music in my collection tends to be in other more mature styles (ie: eerie, spooky, futuristic, etc... etc...) Some Luke Vibert stuff can be pretty cute

Does anyone have any suggestions for "cute" synth music? Preferably LP's

While the end product is more on the pop side of things, this video immediately came to mind: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2HjalhCEk0

"Space Art" (1977) by the French duo Space Art scratches a similar itch for me, and I believe it was recently re-released on LP



You might also want to look up Jean-Jacques Perrey, like "Destination Space". He has some playful stuff, but sometimes it's goofy.

W. Carlos's earlier moog stuff (Switched on Bach, the Well-Tempered Synthesizer, etc.) might be good choices.

She also released a wonderful version of Peter and the Wolf with Wierd Al Yankovic in 1988, although I don't know that it's available on LP. The music isn't overly electronic sounding on that album, but it's absolutely worth getting as the narration and musical quotes from other works are truly entertaining.

Definitely check out Lektrogirl...her album "I love my Computer" on Rephlex is a lot of fun. Has a couple crude splices/edits that sort of add to the charm as well.

Love the catchy happy chorus combined with the dark lyrics

your eyes shine so bright
tell your mom you won't
come home tonight
tomorrow with the tide
it will look like suicide
suicide
