Looking at the picture above you may be instantly put off purchasing this due to it being pink as it isnt going to be to everyones tastes or may not suit the room you were looking to purchase it for but fear not as this same item is available in a variety of different colours including, black, white, green, red and blue so there should be a colour for everyone although we do have the pink one as it was purchased for my daughters bedroom.
Measuring 27cm x 16cm x 14cm it is a nice size so not to be too big and intrusive in your room but a decent size to be able to use easily, it only weighs 1.5kg so isnt too bad weight wise and is light enough to carry around.
I chose this for my daughters aged 9 and 10 due to its very simple design as I thought this would make it easy for them to use it and I was correct as they have not had any problems with it. It is a combined radio and cd player which loads the cds in the top with a flip up piece then you just place the cd in and close the lid, done. You can program it to only play certain tracks on the cd of your choice if you wish too and much to my dislike there is a repeat function on it too which unfortunatley allows my daughter to play the same song over and over again much to our annoyance.
It is a fm radio so nothing fancy but the aerial on the music player picks up a nice clear signal, much better than the one I get in our living room thats for sure, it is a telescopic areal so can be pushed away when not needed so doesnt get in the way.
There is a carry handle on the top of this and it can be run on mains power as we do in the house or on batteries which my daughters use to take it out in the garden but be warned it goes through batteries very quickly so I wouldnt recomend this as your only source of power as it takes 6 batteries to power it so could become costly.
It has had lots of use by my daughters and they are not the gentelist of children so it is rather well made and can stand every day use by juniors, it does have a socket to use head phones with it if you choose too but as my daughters share it they have never used this feature but it doesnt come with head phones so you would have to buy these seperately.
Retailing at around £30 you can get cheaper ones but this one is good.
