Music to Baby's ears...
We just bought something really cool today and I'm so impressed with it that I had to share!
It's a Philips PSS clock/radio and mp3 player with built in 256 MB memory. You can upload music to it from your computer (the way you would to an iPod, etc). The sound is amazing! Honestly, you'll be shocked to hear how good it sounds!
We bought this for the nursery so we could have music for Gwen. We put all of her music on it and set up different play-lists to separate the energetic stuff from the "sleepytime" stuff. It's got a sleep timer so it will automatically shut off. It also has a rechargable battery like your cordless phone and will play for up to 8 hours before it needs a recharge.
The entire thing is about the size of a banana! It costs about $130. We're taking it to China for sure! Usually, things aren't as good as they seem but this is better than I could have ever expected!
