Chalkboard Paint Also Looks Fun

Note: we are not offering an opinion on these chalk products. We haven’t used them. We just think they look like fun. Chalkboard paint? Sure, why not? Still, Caveat Buyor and all that.

This 8-ounce jar currently sells for under 10 bucks on Amazon.

Non Kiddie CD Player Is, In Fact, Good for Kids [DaddyShop]

Sony CD Boombox with Digital AM FM Tuner ZSE5RED

Guess what? That Sony CD Boombox with Digital AM/FM Tuner is, in fact, a non-kiddie CD player that is good for kids.

My youngest has the ability to break almost anything. If you don’t believe me, try this — internal power supply on a desktop computer. Beat that!

But this Sony CD Boombox? We’ve had it since June of 2010, and so far it’s still working. It even looks good, which is rare. I think the reason is the controls. They are located on top of the device and easily accessed by little hands, particular the volume dial, which turns like buttah. We mostly use the CD player but there is an AM/FM radio and a line-in jack for an iPod or other music player.

This is an item that I bought and have used, so this is a real world review based on actual usage. The model number of the device I own is ZSE5RED. Highly recommended.
