Great product


Battery life was a big appeal, taking our active toddler to France in the car was always going to be difficult, but this DVD player together with a set of Mr Tumble DVD's made the journey a lot more bearable for all.

Excellent value


Excellent product for the price, 5 hour battery life gives the opportunity to watch 2 to 3 full length feature films without recharging. Sound is o'k but with decent earphones it becomes brilliant. Book readers are good but I like pictures.
