MP3 Players


MP3 Players for All Your Christmas Music

Christmas is coming and you love everything to do with the holidays. It is your favorite festival. You can’t get enough Christmas music. You want to hear the familiar tunes in the stores, your car, your home and your workplace. With the MP3 technology it is possible to have music to go! Fill up your player with all your favorites.

This solves the problem of not having a stereo in every room of your house. It solves having a car full of Christmas CDs cluttering up your car. It solves subjecting your workmates to your selections.

Load your MP3 player with all your CDs and you will the Seasonal music where ever you go. This is a wonderful use for your player. The idea behind these devices is to give you mobility and flexibility.

Don’t have an MP3 player yet? Not sure which features you need in one? Don’t buy the SanDisk Sansa Clip+ 8 GB MP3 Player until you check out these tips.

TIPS FOR PURCHASING AN MP3 PLAYER

If you plan to use it as you jog or do aerobics you don’t want your MP3 player to be skipping. To prevent having the music play the same line over and over again select one that has flash memory.

Look for a player that has added features. These extras will give you more enjoyment from your player. If you are on the move you don’t want to be burden with it in your hand. A model that can be carried on your arm or clipped to your clothing.

A question you will need to ask yourself is how many megabytes do I need. If you plan to load large amounts of music you will need one with more megabytes. For the Christmas music you might want to look at one with the largest capacity to hold all your favorite songs.

A large easy to read screen allows you to easily see the menu and to make your choices. Without having to guess where you put a particular song you can quickly search and find it.

Let me show you what customers think of the SanDisk Sansa Clip+ 8 GB MP3 Player:
by Musicfan

If all you are looking for is a great sounding, small, cheap mp3 player with a display and expandability options, then the clip + is your best choice. This is very similar to the old clip with the following major differences:

– two minor button placement changes (improvement)
– UI is a bit smoother (menus scroll now)
– volume normalizing/gain
– micro-SD slot for up to 16 added gigs (which is huge)
– a little thicker, probably due to SD support
– clip is no longer removable (depending on your preference, this is a good or bad thing-guess you could just rip it off and file it down if you wanted to)

As always, it sounds great and blows away the iPod Shuffle in terms of value. So light and small–great for the gym. If you need your mp3 player to play games, surf the internet or serve double purpose as a grocery list, then this isn’t for you, but if you’re on a budget or just need something that plays music and does so well, this is the one.

Having decided what you need you are ready to load it with those cheerful Christmas songs and set out. This sounds like the ideal gift for someone special in your family.

Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry sauce

Cranberry sauce has always been part of our Christmas and Thanksgiving meals. We happen to live in an area where 90 percent of all the cranberries sold in North America are grown. As a result they are plentiful.

Cranberries are one of three fruits native to North America and were introduced to the Pilgrims by the Native Americans. Ulysses S. Grant made them popular when he ordered that they be served to all the troupes during the Battle of Petersburg.

  • 4 cups Cranberries
  • 2 cups sugar
  • ½ cup boiling Water
  • Dash of Lemon Juice

Wash the cranberries. Make syrup of the sugar and water. Boil 2 minutes.

Add cranberries and cook gently until berries are clear. We like to have as many whole berries in our sauce as possible.

Cozy Coupe

Little Tikes Cozy Coupe 30th Anniversary Edition

Little Tikes Cozy Coupe 30th Anniversary Edition
Little Tikes Cozy Coupe 30th Anniversary Edition was released this summer. These amazing child powered cars have been a hit with parents and children for the past 30 years. All of my Grandchildren have had a least one of them and of course one lives at Grandma’s house for those special visits. For several years we have attended “Roaming Rascals” at our local recreation center, where there are several of these cars available and very popular. I like them, as the roof is high enough that pushing is easier on the back than some other “ride ’m toys”.

The Little Tikes Cozy Coupe 30th Anniversary Edition has a removable floorboard. This allows for safe easy parent (grandparent) pushing of a toddler that has not yet reach the stage of using their feet to push the car. It also comes with a cut out area at the back of the roof for parents to use as a handle to push upon. I must say it my experience these cars are easy to push by just placing your hands on the roof. For the children the new cozy coupes have lovely smiling faces, high back seats, storage area at the back, and a driver’s door that opens and closes.

This makes a perfect Christmas gift for a child eighteen months to age four.

Ben 10 Sumo Slammers

Ben 10 Sumo SlammersBased on the cartoon series Ben 10 Sumo Slammers, these are one inch figures that are ‘Sumo-Deformed’! “Taking a humorous page from the show – where Ben is obsessed with collecting hard-to-find Sumo Slammer cards – Bandai America has created the unique Sumo Slammer Battle Sets. Each comes with six “sumo-sized” figures that face-off against one another utilizing the packaging as a dojo. These sets also come with five humorous game cards, with highly stylized artwork, that can be used in a Japanese Menko battle, a play pattern considered as the forerunner to the modern card game phenomenon.”

Little boys love battles and they love to collect cards. They can play with the cards or trade them with their friends. For children who watch the TV series or have the Ben 10 videos they can recreate the scenes from the cartoons. Because they are small they can fit easily into a pocket, lunch box or backpack.

With the Ben 10 cartoons being so popular this year these Ben 10 Sumo Slammers battle sets are being touted as a must have Christmas gift. Bandai continues to strongly support Ben 10, with more and all-new Ben 10 toys and playsets. There is no doubt that they will delight on Christmas morning!

These Sumo Slammer figures may be short and squat, but their roly-poly physiques can really pack a punch! Collect them all for hours of imaginary play and fun battles with your friends. Checking online there is already beginning to be shortages so don’t delay order today.

Pirates of the Caribbean

Pirates of the Caribbean Toys
Little boys the worldwide have long been fascinated with Pirates. Pirates of the Caribbean is a multi-billion dollar Walt Disney franchise encompassing a theme park ride, a series of films and spinoff novels, as well as numerous video games and other publications. Disney’s theme park has long treaded on that with their Pirates of the Caribbean ride. Who has not been thrilled by it and wanted more.

Sparking on this Disney developed a series of fantasy-adventure films. The last was Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, and was released in 2007. Now with the fourth in the series to come out in the spring of 2011 there is renewed interest just as there was for Toy Story 3.

As a result of this anticipation the Pirates of the Caribbean Toys are flying off the shelves for this Christmas. From the action figures such as Capt. Jack Sparrow, to the intricate ships such as the Flying Dutchman, to play sets such as Danger from the Depths, to the many dress up choices there is something for every pirate loving child. They all allow children to role play, to use their imaginations, and enter into worlds of fantasy.

For little boys there are never enough action figures and when they are Pirates this brings a whole new dimension to their imaginary play. Victors on the high sea or raging sword fights with one’s enemies you must have enough Pirates of the Caribbean action figures to stage your fantasy.

To add to the hero Jack Sparrow a must have is Sao Feng, Prisoner Will Turner, the Cursed Pirate, Disguised Elizabeth, Capt. Barbossa, Palifico, Pick Axe Slashing Maccus, and Clanker. Add all these figures to the Empress with her magnificent red sails and the Flying Dutchman Pirates of the Caribbean 3 Deluxe Ships and the battle begins.

The figures are very detailed and realistic replicas of the movie figures. They come with swords, pick axes, ball and chains, and guns a blazing. For collectors and children alike these are awesome figures.

It is hard to believe that you could go wrong in giving a child something from the Pirates of the Caribbean Toys collection for Christmas. Don’t delay order early.

This trend to use an Antique World Map motif in home and office décor has created many forms from which to choose. It is possible to find these forms of maps in as original ancient maps, old map reproductions, old map prints, posters, murals, and wall tapestries. In the past, maps were very valuable and they were treated in the same way as art.

Original ancient maps are definitely the most expensive option. However it is possible to choose an addition of one of these forms of wall décor to change a room with very small budget. Many famous ancient maps have been reproduced as prints and posters. Maps often work well as framed artwork. Even posters, properly framed, can look dramatic and expressive, adding an unusual touch to any decorating scheme. With their often warm, earthy tones and subtle detail they can enliven almost any environment, and are a striking way for history lovers to decorate.

Although prints enjoy a unique position in home décor popular world maps are increasingly available as luxury wall tapestries. The woven nature of tapestry art adds depth and texture to these already impressive works and makes a distinct alternative to framed art. 


Because wall tapestries are textile based the weave often helps lift the original work making for a quite dramatic piece of décor. The best quality tapestries do an impressive job of not only reproducing the original detail, but add considerably to their charm and people can be quite taken aback at their distinctive nature.

These Antique World Map tapestries make great Christmas gifts for Dad.
