The tides are starting to turn. My oldest daughter has a very distinct musical taste that is not always the same as her parents. She can also listen to the same song OVER AND OVER AND OVER again – literally for hours on end – which can drive anyone batty especially when stuck inside a car. We recently took a day off work to chaperon Brooke’s field trip to the Elgin Pumpkin Patch and we listened to Brooke’s Play List (all of just SEVEN songs) over and over again until I thought my eyes were crossing. While I love her enthusiasm for music and think she has great taste, Bob and I thought it might be time for her and her sister to get their own device so we can all listen to our favorite albums with no distractions. I thought the BuddyPhone system by On and Off was pretty genius and may just save our sanity during the preteen pop idol phase. *Shudder* This is coming, isn’t it, parents?!?
Brooke’s Play List for our Elgin Road Trip
1. Get Lucky by Daft Punk (Random Access Memories)
2. Pumped Up Kicks by Foster the People (Torches)
3. Out of my League by Fitz and the Tantrums (Out of My League)
4. Rip it Up by Orange Juice (Rip It Up)
5. So Low by Matt Berry (Witchazel)
6. A Song for Rosie by Matt Berry (Witchazel)
7. All I Know by Washed Out (Paracosm)
BuddyPhones are really cool and durable headphones for kids that has a unique design to sharing technology with their buddies in a safe volume to sensitive ears. BuddyPhones uses a built-in, always-on sound-control circuit to cap peak volume levels at 85 decibels which is the recommended level by many auditory health organizations in the U.S., WHO, EU and others for children. Awesome for someone like me with some hearing issues. On top of that you can bend and twist the phones without worrying about them breaking and they have a colorful cushion headband for increased comfort-ability and come with travel bag for storage on the ‘road’.
My FAVORITE PART? You can purchase a second BuddyPhone so two kids can listen at once. This is great for iPods, iPads, and on any device where you can share music with the built-in BuddyCable audio splitter. Genius! This is the perfect system to share your tunes with your best bud and you can purchase a max of 4 BuddyCables together. Smart, fun, and has saved us the headache of hearing “Pumped Up Kicks” for the 1,000 time in a row, so we are more than happy with the BuddyPhone! YAY!
