Hi

An odd little question.

Thomas (aged 7 and 3/4) likes to listen to music.
He had an MP3 player but basically these machines are 2 small for kids his age.
They simply get lost !

I am looking for a BIG MP3 player.  The "bigness" is the main criteria - that way it won't get lost.

Can anybody suggest such a product?

The Sweetpea3 - but I guess you're looking for one in the UK?

Or get this and add enough bricks to make it the size you want? :)

Thanks Masqueraid


Ireland actually!

I just had a look at the sweatpea product.

It is certainly close to what I want - although my son would probably be a bit old for it.

Let's see what other suggestions I get.

Hey Dogsbody,

I woulddn't get too excited about the corpulance of the Sweetpea3 -- that's just artwork you're looking at: it's actually only 6.5 inches by 2.75 iches -- but I think Ireland is not still locked into imperial like the Yanks.
Dimensions: 6.5" x 2.75" x 1.125" (16.5cm x 7.0cm x 2.75cm)

Actually, what you're asking is a  a bit of a paradox. The whole idea of portable players is that they are small enough to be practicably protable. But here's one suggestion: It's the African Ipod.
You could go for huge iPod docking stations but then the little iPod can still be removed and lost.
By the way a lad approaching 8 years old should be responsible not to loose such an item.
Ultimately if you really don't want portability just buy him an el chepo hand-me-down computer and stick all the mp3s on the HDD. Or get an el chepo Netbook computer with a speaker.
