Fisher-Price Music Player
Fisher-Price recently began shipping the Kid-Tough FP3 Player, a digital jukebox the toy maker has designed with pre-schoolers in mind. The FP3 has oversized buttons and an icon-only interface to help children navigate their music without help. The bundled headphones are properly sized for younger listeners' ears and the player itself is built to survive the shock of a sudden drop, according to the company. Inside, the player stores up to two hours of music on its integrated flash storage and has an SD card slot to store extra music. Fisher-Price preloads the device with six songs and two stories, giving parents the option to either purchase more through an online Fisher-Price store or to import their own CDs. Power is supplied through two AAA batteries. Already available, the latest Kid-Tough device sells for $70.
