This shipped in a couple of days in plenty of time for Christmas for our granddaughter who loves music and has pushed my CD player's buttons since she was a baby (trying to get the music on!) She's 3 now and loves having her own. It's lightweight and small enough to use and just the perfect pink for a little girl. She can work it herself (Mom watching over her) and she carry it from room to room or portable to take outside. It's just right for a young child with parental oversight. We haven't had it long enough to give a review on longevity of usage.
