A lot of hearsay has been floating around that playing music when you're pregnant will actually make your baby smarter when he or she comes popping out of your womb. I use the word "hearsay" because it hasn't been proven as of yet. So if you're there, sitting in a room being lulled to sleep by the tunes you're playing for your fetus, then maybe you'd like to continue the music therapy that you've started with your unborn little one.
The Baby Bidou MP3 Player is made for babies ages 6 months and up. That's quite early to hand your offspring a gadget to play some tunes that young but we never know he might grow up to be a modern-day Beethoven or Justin Bieber incarnate.
The Baby Bidou MP3 Player comes in two brilliant colors: baby blue and mocha brown. It features huge and easy-to-press buttons placed in all the right places on its teddy bear interface to allow your child to master controlling it from the get go.
However, it's more than just a music player. You can also record messages or sing a lullaby that your baby can play over and over again (that is, if he or she wants to) because the Baby Bidou is actually equipped with a built-in microphone. The player already comes pre-loaded with some classical kids' tunes but you can add new ones easily via USB.
One thing my mother always used to nag at me about when I was still a teenager (I hope you'll believe me when I say that that time isn't so far off from the present) that I was going to make myself go deaf by the time I reached thirty because I was always walking around the house with my earphones plugged in and with the iPod at almost-full volume. Well, with the Baby Bidou, you won't have that problem because it's the parent who sets the volume and your child can't do anything about it.
Here are some more features of the Baby Bidou:
- Durable enough to withstand daily use (by the most energetic of children)
- Parental controls allow you to set maximum device volume
- Sleep timer function for playing lullabies at bedtime
- Parents can disable certain buttons to make use easier for very young children
- Can be cleaned with a damp cloth
- Built-in microphone for voice recording
What do you think? Is it way too early to give your little darling an MP3 player even before he or she can walk or talk or do you think the Baby Bidou can actually serve a useful purpose?
