Mickey Mouse MP3/WMA Player

When it goes down to specifications, all MP3 players are alike. Therefore, it is really hard for some people to decide which one is right for them. You may find tons of “good looking” MP3 players in the market but how many of them are considered as a “cute” one. For all of those who are “young-at-hear,” this good looking MP3 player might be just right for you.

I’d say this Mickey Mouse MP3 player is just right for kids (pretty girls, perhaps?) and people who are young-at-heart (and this may include me, ha ha ha). It comes with Disney Music samples, and you know that Disney Music is a good music. This MP3 player can play both MP3 and WMA audio formats. It has 128MB of build-in memory. If that is not enough for you, the SD/MMC slot is also available allowing expandable memory up to 1GB.

The build-in rechargeable battery allows up to 10 hours of play back time. The unit also comes with an audio-jack, lanyard, and ear-bud headphones, and USB port with 4 1/5” H x 1 ½” W x 3/5” D. Plastic/metal.
