To take with you
hörbert's stable handle makes it a companion through thick and thin. His weight of 950 grams (2.094 lb) makes him sturdy enough for a children's room and light enough to carry it.
hörbert's robust On/Off switch and his volume knob are arranged in a way that makes it safer for children to play with them. By using unambiguous operating elements, form follows function, and even young children are able to handle this audio player.
Do avoid safety hazards in playing rooms? Power supplies and cables don't belong into children's hands. hörbert works without them, simply with off-the-shelf batteries. So you're even sure you'll be able to get batteries for him on vacation for example.
hörbert is a customizable present. When ordering your hörbert, you can have it engraved with your personal engraving if you like. For example the name of the person you want to give hörbert to.
The friend of children
hörbert likes to keep his innards for himself. Grown-ups can open his back-plate, using a coin as a tool. The robustness of hörbert's switch, buttons and knobs makes it an ideal companion for kids - he's quite tough but offers a natural and warm touch.
The music player with ear protection: There's a switch inside hörbert to choose between 'piano' and 'forte'. It limits hörbert's maximum volume. This switch is located inside hörbert and is not accessible from the outside.
