Do your kids love music as much as mine do? Mine love being able to pop some music on and have a dance, or even just pop it on in the background. I have always loved music, I use to have it playing loud when I was pregnant with Tyler and dance around our flat! I’m surprised he didn’t come out singing Kylie Minogue ‘Fever’!
So music is a big part of our family life, and I love it. When I spotted that VQ had recently bought in the Retro Mini radio in a premium leatherette wrap with dancing mice all over, I knew what 2 little girls would love this design!
With cute little mice dancing around I don’t think any little girly girl wouldn’t love this radio. It also comes in 22 other colours to give you plenty of options!
Being the Mini size it is perfect for children, with enough functions to suit them and not complicated to control.
Each night the girls listen to the audio books, and this is perfect for this. They can connect up the audio book by either connecting the 3.5mm aux-in connection, or connecting the item by Bluetooth. Super simple, and something they can do themselves.
We popped out to The New Forest for little picnic at the weekend, and I thought I would take our new little Retro Mini speaker out with us! The bonus is that it can be operated by mains supply when at home, but pop in 4 AA batteries and it can go anywhere with you!
The teddies came, and of course we had to bring some yummy Jammie Dodgers too!
We loved being able to have some music with us on our picnic, the volume was really adjustable and we could have it at a perfect volume for a picnic in the forest. However if we had a lot of people with us, we could have easily turned it enough for people to hear it.
A couple of times the signal went a little bit on the radio, but we were in the middle of the forest! We could have popped the Bluetooth on and linked it up to Spotify if the signal was a big problem though. It comes with DAB, DAB+ and FM radio reception which means you have access to the full range of digital and analogue services across the UK and Europe. This gives you a huge range to choose from. The great thing is there is 30 presets for both DAB and FM, so this is perfect for kids as they can just access the stations through this.
We really did love having the radio with us, and as the kids were having a play they would let rip and have a dance too!!
What do you think about the design? I think it is so pretty, they could have easily picked the typical girly pattern with butterflies, or fairies, however this is different and I really like it.
And that cute little handle is perfect for little hands to carry it around, and really lightweight it isn’t heavy to carry around with us.
Then once we were back home it can be plugged back in and used at home for an alarm. You can have it buzzing or so the radio comes on, perfect for my girls to wake up to on a school morning. Much nicer way to wake up!
