Pros great concept and sound...if it worked
Cons bottom cap keeps popping off, only plays 12 or so of the first songs even though more are on the card, shaking it doesn't change the songs...must use the button....why market it to children this way if it doesn't do what you claim?
Summary I wish it worked...it's a great concept and has a good sound with external speakers....just not worth it for the kids...especially the cap factor...unless you want to tape it and I don't!
Pros Extremely easy to use, fun, cheap, good quality
Cons No LCD screen makes it hard to sort through songs
Summary For adults, there are better choices...specifically anything with an LCD screen to make selection easier.
For children, or any adult that is a complete technophobe or has poor eyesight, this unit is PERFECT! My 3-year-old daughter loves it, as does my 84-year-old French grandma who can't see very well due to glaucoma.
The best feature is the built-in speaker, again perfect for toddlers who have trouble putting on headphones...and it has 2 headphone plugs for when the kids are a bit older and BOTH want to listen at the same time.
I play Disney audiobooks on this unit for my daughter at bedtime every night, and the battery lasts forever.
This is the best purchase I made for her this year - it's the most used by far!
I give it a 10 because for its purpose, it's perfect.
"My son loves it"on by vzara
Pros Easy to use, smal but yest still with the enought poverfull speaker
Cons If you load the hundreads of song, hard to browse
Summary My 16 months old son loves it - great choice for trip and home entertainment. It keeps him busy for hours. The built in speaker is power enough to make him dance, but at the same time it's not over loud to damage his small ears. Did I mentioned - it's slam, drop, kick proof The only really peaty is that it doesn't have rechargeable battery.
Pros multi-purpose device, sound quality very good
Cons none so far
Summary Got 2 as a package deal from QVC for about $30.00 each. One for my 10 year old granddaugter and one for me to use on my daily walks. Detest earbuds/headphones so this fits the bill nicely. Comes with a handy clip so I can clip it to my dress, sweater, necklace, etc. Sounds good and so easy to use. Opened it up, plugged in to computer, downloaded music and it was ready to go. Have had no problems with it whatsoever and will be buying more for Christmas gifts. Highly recommend.
