Press a button, hear a random recording. How do I make one?

I have an idea for a sculpture that would have a button on it. When the button is pressed, a sound recording would play. There'd be about 10-20 recordings, each about 2-4 minutes long. I know it's possible to do this -- I just don't know how, exactly. What should I be googling?

I see this effect in kids' toys all the time... press plush Elmo's hand and he sings ABCs; press it again and he sings Twinkle Twinkle; press it again for Old Macdonald. Ideally, I'd use the same sort of technology, because the smaller and simpler the better.
