Gift for my daughter

B. Richards, Amazon

  • Summary: Worked well, but didn't last too long. Of course, not much does with her, but this in particular didn't seem very sturdy.

Pretty cheap!!!

J. Dubois, Amazon

  • Summary: I thought this would be a fun item for my four-year-old. However, we had problems! First of all, the shaker did not work (which was the whole gimmick), it is not rechargeable, and the volume and song dial are difficult; if you turn the dial just a little too much (very sensitive) you remove the top where the memory card goes. UGH! Sandisk should have let Mom's design this.

Cute little player, but only accepts MP3 and WAV files

S. Dixon, Amazon
27 July 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this for my son's 6th birthday. It is a pretty nifty player that my son enjoys. Since this is only my son's first MP3 player, I didn't want something overly difficult for him to handle, as well as something overly priced. I like that it can be listened to via ear buds or through its speaker. The shaking function to randomly change songs is fun, but you can twist the bottom ring to access music more specifically.

Good, But Technical Flaws

Buster, Amazon
12 May 2009
  • Summary: The Good: I bought one of these when they were still fairly new for my 7 year old and it was the only one on the market that had a built in speaker. Not having to lug around external speakers so that others can enjoy it is HUGE. When my daughter ran across a song she liked, she could easily share it with all of us - lots of fun in the car. Shaker mechanism works good, and frees you up from having to decipher and manipulate tiny controls just to change songs.

price is right, but a little disappointing

L. Kramer "I survived the 80s", Amazon
21 February 2009
  • Summary: As suggested by other reviewers, we got this for our 5-year-old as his first MP3 player. For just loading some tunes on it & letting him go it's fine - we really just wanted something that he could listen to some music at bedtime. The "kids songs" that came with it weren't very "kiddie" - more top-40-ish/"tweenie" music than what I was expecting. The shaker to change the song - holding the button down and shaking at the same time - was a little complicated for him.

Nice for Kids, but not perfect

Amazon Customer "mpontius2", Amazon
7 January 2008
  • Summary: I got this MP3 player for my 4 year old son. It does what I wanted: It plays lots of different songs that he likes, with the ability for me to get rid of ones that annoy the grown-ups. It does so while minimizing the dangers of using headphones on a toddler (both hearing and stranulation). It is a fairly primitive and limited device, so don't expect it to replace your iPOD.

  • Summary: A truly great product for kids but can be a real pain if you are not sure of what you are doing to transfer music.
