Summary: I first found this little player years ago and have loved it ever since. It comes with a sd card and I have a collection of music on various cards-labeled according to my mood. (I love doing various projects at home/garden, etc., and this little player comes along with me.) Have dropped it too many times to count and yet still keeps playing. I use rechargeable batteries and just change them as needed (usually keep extras in my pocket/around the house).
Summary: Bought the sansa Shaker for my 6 year old daughter. Best media player on the market for children. The first one I bought was when she was 3 and she loved it. Easy to use there is a apeaker and for the older ones you can plug in head phones. I bought another 2 for her as the first one lasted 3 years with her dropping it many times as a child would. the next one should last a lot longer now she is older and the other one could be mine!!!
Summary: Simply the BEST musicplayer a child could have! Even adults would love this!!! My son loved it since he was less than a year old... He still loves it and he always takes it with him everywhere he goes!
Awesome product. I never would have discontinued production on it.

Summary: My twin two year old daughters broke two CD boom boxes before we found this product. We can have it out of reach but still get to it. The boom box they could grab the cord and get to the player. I am very computer literate but this was our family's first MP3 player. It works great. I don't know why Sandisc would have ever discontinued it. They only thing about it is that I wish it would stop after playing the songs once.
Summary: Excellent product, quality and overall performance. I bought this player because it design and "shake" function for a little nephew. The expansion slot (for SD) is a great way to improve this little but powerful player.
LOVE THIS PLAYER!!! Perfect for young kids who love music!

Summary: I LOVE this music player! My daughter has owned one of every color available, which has been pretty funny. It's so simple and easy to use! We initially bought one because of the external speaker. Our child was only 4 when we bought it and we weren't comfortable with her wearing headphones and controlling the volume without us knowing how loud it was.
Summary: I bought this for a blind friend so they could hear some of the books I have read. I like this unit because it is one of the few remaining SD card MP-3 players on the market that aren't over hyped up with a lot of unneeded complexity. With this unit my friend (blind) doesn't need to be able to read a display in order to navigate through a lot of un-intuitive menus, just turn it on and use a minimum of easily mastered controls to hear the books.
