MP3 Player for Small Children $39.99

You can get a great deal on a SweetPea at ThinkGeek right now. It's marked down to $49.99 (regular price $59.99). Get an additional $10 off by using the code SWEETGEEKS.

A SweetPea is an MP3 player for children 0 to 6. My boys each got a SweetPea for Christmas from their grandparents. So far, they love it and we are very pleased with the quality. The SweetPea allows you to download any type of music or stories you like so that your children can safely listen at their leisure. It's non-toxic, made from food-grade rubber, only requires one AA battery, and is durable enough to withstand the rough treatment of a small child.

Although it's a bit slow to respond, my four-year-old can work it fairly easily. He has learned to play his favorite song over, and over, and over, and over. My two-year-old enjoys listening with his brother, but isn't very interested in pressing the buttons. Here is a picture of my two boys enjoying music time.

It's hard to tell how the SweetPeas will hold up long-term, but it feels a lot more sturdy than the Playskool Made for Me MP3 Music Player. This was a very popular toy in our house until it suddenly stopped working when we'd had it about a year. Given that the toy cost about $75, this seemed a little unreasonable. After reading online reviews, I realized this was a common problem. One positive thing I can say for Playskool is that they sent me a very nice replacement toy when I called the warranty line.

Another advantage the SweetPea has over the Playskool player is that the manufacturer appears to provide great technical support via Facebook and the Sweet Pea website. Of course, there is also a warranty. Plus, the SweetPea is compatible with the Mac and PC, whereas the Playskool player is PC only.

Thank you to Dealafina for alerting me to this discount! Dealafina has a lot of great things to say about ThinkGeek. If you aren't in the market for a SweetPea, you can use the SWEETGEEKS code for any order greater than $40.
