I purchased a Mighty for my daughter so she did not always have a sceen to look at when listening to music. It is very easy for her to use and small enough that she can pop it in her pocket!
Its is great but I use it very infrequently and it always say I need to update my playlists even though its say when you buy its it automatically updates but its doesnt. When it is updated it works perfectly and the audio quality is amazing. Highly recommend!
I bought the Mighty for my 9 year old's birthday because I wanted to encourage her to listen to the music she likes WITHOUT a distracting screen. No screen means she has hands and eyes free for all sorts of fun stuff, making art, riding scooters, climbing trees. It is important that as she embarks into tween-age she get something with enough 'cool' factor that will last and, most importantly, grow with her. Listening into music isn't going out of fashion anytime this century! Which brings me to why the Mighty is the best choice. It streams Spotify so there's no need to spend a fortune downloading tracks individually only for them to be out of favour in a few months. I remember what it was like to be a teenager and agonising for hours over the latest tracks! Thank goodness download speeds are vastly improved and the Mighty holds a thousand songs. The ability to download her playlist to the Mighty means I can listen to my music at the same time, too - no more arguments about the music choice. So far the connectivity to Bluetooth and to the app has been painless, as has downloading the playlist. The Mighty is loved in my household already, and I have no doubt we will get a huge amount of use and love from it!
