This paper introduces a new Hungarian database containing spoken material recorded from children. The aspects, which were taken into consideration under the selection of the speakers (and the composition of the speech database corpus), and the final content of the corpus is discussed. We described the method of the recording and the post-processing work on the recorded material. The paper also touches on the possible applications, in which the database is usable. Different difficulties faced during the work, mainly arising from the age of our speakers, are reported.
