I have to say it's a great price.
#3
The only problem is that these are now discontinued and the chips are no longer available.
:-(

So can you use the sdcard reader to play videos from an sdcard on it? Or are you limited to the 32mb of space?

Great price. Voted hot

Here's review from a couple of years ago

26 January 2005 - No matter what people say, gadgets are expensive, especially the latest ones. It's no surprise then that a face of horror would come over your face if you saw a small child playing with your latest £400 portable media centre. These things are supposed to be robust, but come on who are we kidding here.

Whether it's because it's seen a gap in the market, or just seeing kids as an easy target, Mattel has launched the Juice Box, a portable media centre aimed at kids.

The Juice box sports a 2.75in screen, offers video and MP3 playback and costs £80 meaning that you won't be so terrified when you see a little one with their mitts all over it. The video playback quality is poor, but then feedback from the kids and parents we showed the unit to didn't seem to mind this. Kids were kept quiet and as one parent said, “Cartoons don't need to be hi-res to work”. It's a good point and one that has obviously allowed Mattel to keep the price down.

Aside from the player, that comes with the usual pause, play, fast-forward, and rewind you get a cartridge with which to load up more content. The cartridges are small and will probably get lost in a matter of minutes.

Also in the box, is a MP3 starter kit that comes with software, a spare cartridge, a 32Mb SD card and an SD Card USB reader. It's a stroke of genius in our minds and means that you can decide what content you want your kids to use. The software is straight forward and the fact that its SD makes it all the easier to use. Of course some might say it's just more bits waiting to be lost, but it certainly beats the Video Now system where you're tied into purchasing content on proprietary disks.

Purchased one of these in the US at KB Toys for my daughter last month,

They do a starter kit of the player, PC Software, SD Adaptor so you can put your own music on SD cards + 6 Chips of Video for $9.99 (£5)

Check on Ebay you will probably get a much better package than the argos one, or if you get the argos one check for extras on eBay

Beware - The screen Resolution is appalingly low and it eats batteries, great for 5 to 7 year olds, any older get them something decent!
#7
Whats the largest SD card this will take?
#8
want to convert it to a cheep lcd photo frame?

To answer my earlier question I have read on another forum that this unit will take a 512MB Sd card with some later models taking up to 1GB
#11
It's made by Mattel so remember not to lick the casing. Ok cheap 'joke' I know, couldn't resist.

I bought one of these for my daughter a couple of years ago. I've just nipped out to Argos to get her a spare. She really likes it. The one I got today was one of the earlier ones & not the one pictured at the top of the page. I would have liked one of the later ones if they can take up to a gig. I might try to swap it at another Argos in the week. They are quite good as MP3 players for children. The supplied software makes the MP3s quite small & not that bad quality for the file size. Its got a built in speaker too.

Cant find any in South Wales. :-(

Got one to take to bits, thanks! Takes up to 512mb cards, going to do the photo frame mod listed above I think.

Was last one in store (York bridge st) but there are others locally (York Monks Cross), good present for young kids for a fiver.

Now to find some free audio books for kids

I've just seen the photoframe mod & I really dont think you'll have to take it to bits. The accessory kit lets you put pictures onto the Juicebox so all you'd need to do is un clip the screen protector then put the juicebox into the frame as it is. You would be able to take the SD card out & put more pictures / MP3s on it when you wanted.

Thanks for al the extra info everyone :)
#19
A seething hot deal :)
I was lucky enough to pick up two from Billericay today, for my two nephews. These will make their day. Thanks OP.
#20
One arrived today, but one thing to be careful with is the volume when used with headphones, in video mode it gets very loud and in mp3 mode can be deafening and thats not even when set to maximum volume! So be aware if you leave the kids using one with headphones as this can be quite dangerous if they turn it up.
