I bought my husband an iRiver Dclick and this cute little thing was part of the deal (if I know better, I am pretty sure I paid for this small gadget too...marketing bluffs!). It was Free-of-Charge. My daughter liked it the moment she saw it and wouldn't let go so I ended up buying the iRiver MP4 player when I planned to buy him an iPod Nano instead.

This MP3 player is good for kids and those with small hands because it IS small. The big head with the bulbous ears are similar to Mickey Mouse's face. Don't be fooled though with those cute ears but they actually serve a function! Flip them left or right and you adjust the volume. Same goes with the other ear, you just flip which ever side and you change tracks.

It comes with its USB cord and no adaptor required to charge it. Just plug it in your PC and that should do the work. I find this unit very user friendly because my daughter, who is 11, managed to put the songs in her MP3 player without my help. She just read the instructions on her own and blasted away filling her cute Mickey iRiver MP3 player. I figured it was drag and drop; so fairly easy.

It is only 1 GB so I am not giving this unit the big props. Although it is cute and savvy, I would rather buy an iPod or the bigger iRiver music players which are out in the market. But for my daughter who adores her new gadget, I guess she will beg to differ.

Oh, by the way, it comes in many colors. My daughter chose the gray one.
