Fisher-Price Kid-Tough Portable DVD PlayerFIsher-Price portable dvd player is designed for kids; the whole unit is child-friendly; control button are big enough, it is easy to use and is tough - it can withstand a lot of tough play and falls. The unit is very expensive and is not intended for children under 3 yrs. as it contains small parts. But it is perfect as the boys portable DVD.

The screen, when compare to the above DVDs, is very small, only 3.2", but is much stronger and has the gret resolution. If your kid doesn't want to hold it, the unit has a stand that props up.


As per many parents and kids feedback portable DVD players for children are the cool present. Based on parents reviews, the available kids portable dvd player models are pretty cool, or cute what some moms will say, but they lack in quality as you can expect from the standard portable DVD type. Either buying a girls or boys portable DVD, even for babies, expect to pay up to $100 but don't expect extra features or super picture and sound quality. These DVDs are design lightweight, for easy use with simple control buttons. The kids will love it and that is what is most important.
