Sandisk Sansa Shaker

 

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

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 (1GB, blue)

 

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...

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...

"Love this mp3 player!"

 

My daughter has had this for several years now. It has lasted longer than any other mp3 player she has had. It can take lots of abuse and still work, even after being in the bottom of a toy box. Music is easily downloaded from the computer to a SD card.

Great for kids. Survives the bottom of a toy box. Lack of a display screen adds for extra durability.
