The SweetPea3 MP3 Player for Kids is most appropriate for kids ages 0-6 years or for anyone who desires simplicity and robustness, such as many seniors and those with special needs.

MP3 technology uses memory chips to store music which means it is safe and robust because there are no moving parts. MP3 technology is also very simple to use and configure.

  • plays all the popular music and audio book formats
  • 2GB memory stores up to 32 hours of music and stories
  • you can download your own music copied from a CD or purchased from stores like iTunes or Amazon.com
  • comes preloaded with music by Susie Tallman and stories by Jim Weiss

General Operation

The SweetPea3 was designed from the ground up for kids and parents. Kids control what they need and parents control the rest. We've made it simple for everyone.

Press any button to wake up the SweetPea3. After a few seconds it will start to play from the spot in the song where it was last played. Press the right button to advance to the next song and the left button to go to the previous song. Press the middle button to stop the song. You can also fast forward and fast rewind through a song by pressing and holding the right and left buttons respectively.

Parents access the settings menu by pressing and holding the right and left buttons together for six seconds. Speaker and headphone volume, playlist selection (up to 99) and auto off time are configured within the settings menu.

The SweetPea3 shuts off automatically when it is idle for one minute. It can be restarted again by pressing a button.

Loading Music and Stories

The SweetPea3 is effectively a USB hard drive. This means you transfer, organize and delete music files just as you would on any hard drive. You can drag and drop or copy and paste songs and stories using Windows Explorer or Mac Finder. You can also drag and drop straight from iTunes. Audible audio books are transferred using Audible Manager (you cannot transfer Audible audio books from a Mac).
