Wouldn't recommend to anyone.
Simply soaks up water then becomes unworkable!

Somewhat aggressive response from Matchstick.
The whole point of my not recommending this item was simply because I bought one and it was useless.
I was quite simply trying to prevent others having the same problems. Could, however, be that I bought a 'naff' one that soaked up water like the proverbial sponge and became unworkable after a few minutes. Who's to know if they're not all like that?

sorry, wasnt meaning to be aggressive...poor grammar by me, i was surprised that was all, as my shower tap radio is quite good...but no, definately if it is poor then tell us all cos it would be better to buy the one i bought from play!

merry christmas sock!

I got one of these last christmas, and while I don't float it in the bath so can't vouch for the water-tightness I thought for the price it's excellent - I use it for about half an hour in the bathroom most mornings and haven't even had to change the batteries yet!
#9
I bought one last week and as someone else says its ok for adults if you dont splash about..
if it takes some water it does not work (ie speaker is not water proof )
#10
Madmax has it spot on, they're water resistant, not water proof. They'll survive a bit of slashing but not submersing.

Picked one up last night. Good deal and voted hot.

I got my wife one of these as a stocking filler (in pink) a couple of years ago in a Littlewoods Index shop clearance for like £3. Been great in the bathroom ever since, we dont submerge it in water, it is water resistant not waterproof...if common sense prevails its a great little bathroom radio, not bad sound from such a little unit either.

It really is designed so u can change tunings and volume with damp hands, not designed for floating in water like a toy duck...ours rests on a shelf.

Voted hot, a good sturdy and great sounding little stocking filler this for sure, worth £4.50 of anyones money that likes a bit of morning cacophony in the bathroom.

Surely that is exactly the idea, given that it is fashioned into a duck, which are generally seen in water.
I got one of these from play last week, with lights inside, the idea being that it lights up the water as it bobs along. So that must be what it is designed for.
Sounds like you just have to be quite careful with these......

Well we haven't actually tried submerging it in water to be honest, but really who would want to? Its a radio, shaped like a duck for the bathroom, makes a nice ornament...i am sure you could float it along...it does have a very thick sealed battery compartment block cover, and sealed in screw holes at the base...however the back of its head has the speaker grill, so I guess common sense has to prevail. Just Humidity and light splashings are going to be best.

Its an ornamental duck, i am sure it can be floated but not drowned...we take showers and it makes a nice ornament on the shelf and is water resistant with rubberised fm-am buttons on the wing and volume control by twisting its head, tuning by twisting its tail.

I've got given one of these - to be honest, it's OK for 5 quid, but I'd never pay any more for it. It's not great.
#16
Are these available in store?
