SanDisk introduces the Sansa Shaker. It’s a fun and easy to use MP3 player designed for kids and families.
The Sansa Shaker features many ways to listen to and share songs. It has a built-in speaker to enjoy music without ear buds, to play your favorite music, and listen with your friends & family. Plus it comes with two headphone jacks. You also have the ability to play and share SD cards loaded with your favorite songs.
Changing songs on the Sansa Shaker is a snap – or rather, a “shake”. You can impress your friends by shaking the device to jump to the next song, or use the colorful controller bands for forward and backward changing as well to manipulate volume.

Gifted my cousins a couple of 512MBs that came free after GCO back in April 2008.

You unscrew the bottom of the shaker, and it has a spring load SD slot and that is also where the AAA Battery goes. Yes, they are durable.. it is actually market to the tweeners. You can hook up the shaker directly to your PC for drag and drop or remove the SD card and drag and drop via an SD card reader. One note that is not documented in the manual, but I found on the Sandisk Forum. If the unit stops playing, and you have put in a new battery, you might think it is a piece of junk and it is broken. All you have to do is format the SD card, reload your music and you are back in business.
The cheapest they have ever been was $11.77 for the Blue and Pink.
I bought 4 pink and 4 blue of the 512's from Buy.com a couple of months ago. They are AWESOME! The unit isn't too loud and 512 was plenty of space for the type of audio I had on them (audio books, and 1 CD of music). My kids LOVE them (5 year old twins) and people love the fact that they have headphones! The headphones are a good size too and when you max out the volume it isn't too loud (either in the ear or from the speaker).
These are the size of a salt shaker, so they are really small. They are very durable, but the bottom panel does come off easily (houses the battery and the card), we just use a small piece of tape to secure it better, but the panel is "tethered" to the unit probably for this reason. If you want to "shake" to the next song, just hold down the blue button on the front and shake the unit, then you don't have to touch the bottom dial (which is right next to the panel I mentioned earlier).
I have been looking for a 1 GB upgrade price, so it's nice to see the red ones for a couple of bucks more! These are EXCELLENT gifts for kids. I just gave one to a 5th grade girl and she was all about it! They are cute, portable, easy to use. They are MP3 players, so I convert my CD's to MP3's and then drag and drop. I've heard some people complain that they aren't as easy as other players, but I never had a problem.
