Summary: I had my mom buy this for our nearly 3 year old for Christmas (a couple of weeks ago). He has loved it. I put his favorite songs on and he now goes for his "shaker" instead of my iTunes profile on my Mac. As for shaking it to change songs - that's an option you have to turn on. I thought my son might be frustrated by the songs changing as he walked around with it, so I didn't put the option on. He uses the turn belt on the device itself just fine.
Summary: I bought this for my 3yr old daughter last year and she absolutely loves it. It is kid friendly and was easy for her to learn to use. It also has an extra headphone port that her brother can plug into and listen. I like being able to simply load a SD card with music, putting it in the Shaker and she is off dancing! Good, Child Friendly product!
Summary: i got this for my 6yr old for his bday and he loves it has it on day and night. I love that it has a speaker and the batteries are AAA so we can charge or replace them even in the middle of nowhere. Is extremely user friendly and recommend it for any music loving child.
Summary: This MP3 players is great for kids who want to listen to music and do not need headphones. There is no display which makes it difficult to find music. Will hold a 2g card which makes it great to put on tons of music for your kid. Battery life good and is just a AAA battery. All in all, it is a good product for kids, easy to download music too, and easy to use. I would recommend for kids 10 and under.
Great companion for my 2 year old when outside, shopping, etc

Summary: We purchased this for our 2 year-old daughter after hearing suggestions that this MP3 player is great for kids, and has a decent external speaker. Indeed, the speaker quality is surprisingly good considering the size... plenty loud enough for when she is in the car, or sitting on the shopping cart, etc. Of course bass is not very powerful, but this is not an issue since she is listening to children's songs.
Summary: I bouhgt this mp3 player because it's so adorable and I thought the kids would love it very much. Indeed, they did except there is the only problem I am not satisfied about. Amazon dropped 1/3 price just right after I purchased. This kind of thing is always letting me down and usually if I buy in a store, I will go back to the store asking for price adjustment. But this didn't work for Amazon. I know Amazon used to have 90-days price guarantee, but they amended.
Summary: More design over function. But for my daughter it has turned out to be a welcome mp3 player, one she put on her Christmas wish list. She enjoys using it, even though its functionality is limited. The battery that came with it didn't last very long and gave us the false impression that the player had a defect until we realized that it only needed a new battery. For young girls it is a cute and appreciated music player.
Summary: Excellent mp3, except for one thing; the cover for the battery / SD card comes off every time you advance the songs. Fortunately there is a strap to keep the cover attached to the player, so it won't get lost. Otherwise it's an excellent purchase.
Summary: Almost everything about this little gadget is perfect--TWO headphone jacks, speaker on the top (my toddler thinks it's a microphone), perfect size. Two things I would change are that there is no screen to tell you what song is coming, no way to switch through folders of songs to a new group or album. Also, the blue LED light around the on switch blinks constantly while playing. It's really annoying and wastes the battery.
Summary: I bought this mp3 player for my 9 year old daughter. It is very easy to use and the speakers sound pretty good. The only thing that could be a problem, is that this player only accepts mp3 files and most of my daughter's cd's were in the mp4 format. You need to convert the mp4 files to mp3 files in order to play the songs. You can resolve this by downloading software that converts the files which you can do for free online.
