Sandisk Sansa Shaker


Whenever I buy a toy for my good friends' two-year-old son, I like to make sure it makes a lot of noise. That's because, in my experience, kids love loud toys, even though parents hate them. I'm glad to say that SanDisk's Sansa Shaker, an MP3 player...

Easy to use. Upgradable to 2GB. Built-in speaker. Loaded with amusing sound effects. Durable plastic design. Dual earphone jacks

Battery cover is easy to remove. No rechargeable battery. Earbuds sound lousy

The Shaker is a simple $35 MP3 player for kids that has several sound effects parents will "enjoy" hearing through the built-in speaker.

SanDisk Sansa Shaker review


Perhaps unsurprisingly, Disney is the Apple of the children's portable entertainment market. Still, as with the iPod, others will not stand idly by and let the Mix Stick and Mix Max go unchallenged. Enter the SanDisk Sansa Shaker, the latest MP3 player...

The SanDisk Sansa Shaker features a simple, kid-friendly design and will be available in a variety of colors. The player is half-toy and shuffles up music when shaken. Fun sound effects when the player is paused or turned on and off add to its appeal....

The flap covering the ports on the bottom of the Shaker may not be durable over time, and the lack of rechargeable battery may not appeal to everyone. The player only supports MP3s.

If you want to get your children started on digital music at a young age, the Sansa Shaker provides a great way to do so: it's inexpensive, simple, and acts like a toy.

SanDisk Sansa Shaker


As many of you know, I have been reviewing a lot of new MP3 players lately, without a lot of fantastic things to say, especially about the Sony Rolly MP3. So you might expect that I automatically wouldn't like the SanDisk Sansa Shaker, as it too has...

The Sansa Shaker uses this "shake" function, in conjunction with pressing the play/pause button, to swap between songs. Upon shaking, a funny sound indicates this mode is active, and then the next song takes over. What's really interesting is that you...

SanDisk Sansa Shaker MP3 player Review and Prices


SanDisk has been known to pack some pretty powerful audio into their small, easy to use, economical Sansa MP3 players, and while the Shaker doesn't quite live up to this legacy, we're not exactly sure that it's supposed to; rather, it is something...

Good sound quality, FM tuner, voice recorder

Scroll wheel doesn't fully function, bottom comes off very easily

Review: SanDisk Sansa Shaker


If you're looking for a unique spin on a traditional MP3 player, SanDisk has delivered that and more with the Sansa Shaker. The Shaker features the ability to play MP3s and WAV files and you add music via an SD card (ours came with a 1GB one) or just...

Review: Sandisk Sansa Shaker MP3 Player


Well-designed and easy to use., Many unique features like dual-headphone jacks and random song “shaking.”, Comes with 512MB or 1GB memory card., Did we mention it’s massively fun to use?, Built-in loudspeaker is loud and has decent sound.

Battery life is so-so – get some rechargeables., Song randomization isn’t always that “random.”, No option for grouping songs (i.e. playing a specific folder of tunes only), Blue LED ring flashes repeatedly and often – a little too much.

SanDisk Sansa Shaker Review


The ubiquity of digital audio players is becoming more evident as companies venture into younger demographics. SanDisk does just that with an MP3 player targeted at the tween and possibly even the toddler demographic. Enter the Sansa Shaker. Doused in...

I love toys. Maybe that's not a sensible way to start off a review – but I've done it, so there! Needless to say, I'm particularly thrilled when I'm sent something like the S

It's hard to know what the kids of today are into, just writing the phrase "the kids of today" makes us feel a little older than we would like. Howev...

Good sound, Easy to use, Two headphone jacks, Supports SD card memory

No rechargeable battery, Limited appeal, Distortion in speakers at high volume

The Sansa Shaker is a great introduction to the world of portable music and will no doubt keep kids and pre-teens amused for hours.
