Hasbro Mini Media Player
Following the recent release of a Fisher-Price jukebox, toymaker Hasbro has launched its own player for older children. Meant for ages 8 and up, the Massively Mini Media gives more control while still addressing a younger audience. A completely touch-sensitive control pad is said to prevent buttons from breaking, while two headphone jacks are built in so friends can listen using their own earbuds. The bundled earbuds also discourage accidents by doubling as a lanyard, hanging safely from a child's neck. Support is provided for MP3 and WMA audio as well as short AVI and WMV video clips on its built-in 128MB of flash storage; FM radio tuning and recording are equally possible, says Hasbro. The player ships immediately in green, pink, or silver trim for $69.
