Shopping for MP3 players, priced and suitable for a child, overwhelms many parents. Spending hundreds of dollars on the latest technology, however, isn't necessary. Plenty of lower-priced MP3 players offer the memory and features to make any kid happy.

SanDisk's Sansa Clip

Consider SanDisk's Sansa Clip 2GB MP3, which costs between £26 and £45 (2010 pricing). This clip-on MP3 player has a compact design, good sound quality and built-in memory for 500 songs. The Sansa Clip is user-friendly and makes a great choice for any preteen.

Apple iPod Shuffle

Durable and trendy, Apple's iPod Shuffle comes in five metallic colours. The Shuffle is simple to use, offers good sound quality, has a high-speed USB and costs around £32 (2010 pricing). The built-in 1 GB of memory allows storage for 250 songs.

Creative Zen V Plus

Priced at £109 for 2 GB, the Creative Zen V Plus makes a good choice for the more technically sophisticated child. The Zen V Plus line of MP3 players has some impressive features, such as video playback, FM radio and voice recording. The Zen V Plus come with 1 GB of memory for around £83, up to 4 GB of memory for around £130 (2010 pricing).

SanDisk Sansa Shaker

Designed specifically for young children, the Sansa Shaker includes a safe volume that won't harm little ears. Created in the image of a salt shaker, this screen-free MP3 is large enough to prevent choking and has an hourglass shape suited to smaller hands. The Shaker offers a £19 price tag (2010 pricing), simple controls, 512 MB card (the Shaker has no built-in memory) and two headphone jacks.
