The Horbert MP3 Player is made with children in mind. A simple wooden music box, it appeals to those with a fondness for classic toys. Aside from its otherwise traditional appearance, it is a hi-tech portable gadget that encourage users to explore sounds and music in a more interactive manner.

Developed in Germany, specifically the Baden-Wuerttemberg state capitol, the Horbert MP3 Player is made out of non-toxic materials including anodized aluminum, stainless steel and four local species of wood, which makes it very kid-friendly. It is battery operated and can accommodate a SD card.

The Horbert MP3 Player effectively turns children into disc jockeys with its nine colorful selections of buttons that produce different sounds. Kids can push them together or in succession to create a unique score.
