Creative joins Hasbro’s Playskool for baby MP3 players – with DRM protection

MP3 players

Babies – they can’t be trusted. Give them an MP3 player and they’ll be illegally downloading nursery rhymes and bedtime stories as soon as your back is turned.

On the face of it, that’s the thinking behind Hasbro’s decision to hook up with Creative for a range of MP3 players with protected downloads for tots under the Playskool banner. But the thinking is actually to protect against the parents from downloading tracks, then passing them on for use elsewhere. Because we’re all desperate for illegal MP3s of ‘Three Blind Mice’ aren’t we?

The new line of players will launch at the start of September.
