When I think of MP3 players, Fisher Price is hardly the first name that comes to mind. Of course, I’m hardly their target market. Later this year they’re expected to release a portable MP3 player for toddlers, which comes complete with its own child-friendly, icon-based subscription music download service. Children must be very advanced these days; I didn’t begin downloading music until after college.
The £45 player will come with some pre-loaded music and story content, as well as volume control headphones so that the next generation won’t voluntarily defean themselves as we’re all wont to do. – [Star C. Foster]
