    My 9yo daughter keeps telling me that she wants Santa Claus to bring her an Ipod for Christmas...

    I know nothing about these things. I have a feeling that she will either lose it eventually or lose interest in it after a month of two...

    Can anyone reccommend a good product for someone her age? Are Ipods and other mp3 players basically the same thing? Ipod just a name brand or something? I want to keep it less than $100.

    I am totally lost and I don't want to buy the wrong thing or something she doesn't need. Anyone help?

    If she's 9 it's probably about the brand name. It's a mp3 player although some of them can play videos etc too. It doesn't really do anything that a cheaper equivalent cannot do, but they tend to be fairly well designed (aside from the whole battery thing).

    You can get the new 1Gig iPod Shuffle at Target for around $75. It's pretty small, but it also has a clip on it, so you can clip it to your clothes & what-not. They also are available in a WIDE range of colors.
    I had one before upgrading to my iPhone and I was happy with it.

    Check. Anybody else, I'd encourage 'em to check out a Creative or some other brand, but might as well get the cheapest iPod out there.

    Word of warning, though. An audiologist I know told me once that her retirement is gonna be golden thanks to iPods. They're basically guaranteeing her an entire generation that'll need hearing aids.

    Get her one with video, then you can get her to ignore reality.

    I got my 8 year old Daughter a Sandisc, and it does everything she needs it to do and was cheap enough that I won't feel like shit if she looses or breaks it.
