Mp3 player for kids..?

Postby K » 13 Mar 2017, 22:57

OK. I think what I want is impossible but here goes.
My daughter would quite like something to listen to music on for her 6th birthday.
I've considered a Sony walkman- still iconic but I'm not totally sure about the volume limiting- I don't want my daughter screwing up her hearing over the next few years.
So ideally I want something with speakers- perhaps she can play via a USB stick but the cheap ones just allow her to play, you can't choose what you want.
More costly ones will link wirelessly to our music collection, but I'm sure she won't want to be scrolling through all my music just to find her Little Mix tracks.
Maybe a Spotify account but to play on what?

Any thoughts or suggestions most welcome..

Any older model smartphones around the house? Recycle as a new gift.

But never mind me. I don't have kids.

I bought one of these cheap HccToo mp3 players for my son a couple of years ago: https://www.amazon.co.uk/HccToo-Portabl ... +bluetooth

I'm not sure if that's the exact model, but for the cash I can't complain. It does have pretty good battery life, even when blue-toothing, 16GB of memory is more than you'll ever need. You can create playlists, shuffle, all that stuff. I got a cheap-ish Bush bluetooth speaker to go with it, I think it cost about £40 for the two together.

Great ideas from you both. I think the Bluetooth player and speakers will be the winner here even if it means my house flooded with the sound of Katy Perry.
