Suggestion please :) record and playback IC

Hello there, I owe some one a favour for passing on an A3 Printer and a power supply. But any way, I need a method of by pressy a button to play a pre-recorded message through a small on board speaker. Now I was looking through Google and I came across a 'APR9600' Now this is exactly what I was after. But I wasn't up for paying 15 pounds for it :S I could buy an Mp3 player and hook it up that way! :L I remember seeing a small module on Maplin(like a velleman kit). Working their It surprised me when I didn't see any of the kits they used to supply. But it used like a 14pin DIL And that is precisely what I am after hopefully some one knows what i am on about :L Trevor Boultwood! :)
