I swung open his door and there he was, rocking out with his iPod, headphones in place. Oh, and I could hear the music from across the room.
Generally I’m not a big fan of headphones for kids, but he can’t drag his docking station everywhere he goes. I think these Music Balloons
might be the perfect solution. It’s a small, spongy, fun-shaped
portable speaker that kids can easily take anywhere. Simply charge it
using a USB adapter and plug it in for up to 4 hours of playback. They
even come in a few colors, so you can coordinate your daughter’s pink
Nano to the pink balloon speaker.
The sound quality is far from concert quality, but for devices
that don’t have built-in speakers, or to boost the audio from your
computer, it’s a really good option. At least now I don’t have to worry
about my son going deaf while listening to music; even his taste in
music sometimes makes me wish I was.–Betsy
