SweetPea3 MP3 Music Players for Tots

Now I have seen everything. It was just a matter of time before the gadgetries would develop something for the toddlers of today. And you would think they would appreciate them but perhaps in a way they would.

With the right shape and the right entertainment that captures the attention of most infants today, the SweetPea3 MP3 Digital Music Player is a multifunctional gadget that toy and a music player rolled into one. Kids are soothed by the sound of music, especially baby tunes and apparently this is something that kids should have to get in with the groove of the gadget frenzy we are all in.

The SweetPea3 MP3 digital music player, a Canadian-designed toy for children from infants to age six, was chosen as the battery-operated toy of the year. The handheld player plays music from a speaker and has no headphone jack to damage little ears. It comes programmed with music and stories for little ones and has a USB jack that older children can use to upload their own picks to the device. The toy, which is coated in a durable and baby-safe rubber and has a volume control that only adults can access, is a hit with parents.

People Powered Gadgets of 2008

Everyone is being egged on today to be more sensitive as far as turning to gadgets but if there is something to look back on as far as this year is concerned, it would be perhaps about these gadgets that came out using nothing more than people-power to make them work.

Crank N’ Capture Video Camera
As the name connotes, you just crank side of the device by turning the crank on the side for shooting and playback. Unlike a regular video camera, images are not smooth but intentionally choppy, as if animated by flipping pages.

Juice Box / solar battery
Just stick it to a window and let the sun come shining through. Thanks to the suction cups that are attached, you can have recharged batteries in no time.
