permanent hearing damage, when used over a longer period of time! Should separate
earphones/headphones be used, then please make sure that your child only uses this

time your hearing will become accustomed to this volume level and volume sensitivity
will decrease, after which people regularly tend to increase the volume. This procedure
will undoubtedly lead to hearing loss.

› Insert a commercially available cassette into the compartment.
› Close the cassette compartment again.
› After pressing the PLAY button the volume can be now comfortably regulated.
› Press a button to activate one of the following functions as described below:

The end of the cassette has been reached, when the PLAY button can not be pressed
down. We recommend the use of cassettes with a 2 x 30 minute playing time. Cassette tapes with longer playing times are made of thinner material, which effect performance noticeably. These tapes often tend to get tangled up in the driving mechanics.
This cassette player operates with most commercially available recorded and unrecorded tapes.
During playback your child can use the microphone to sing along to the music being
played. Your child’s own voice can be heard from the loudspeakers.
› Push the switch found on the microphone to „ON“, to turn the microphone on.
› Now the microphone can be spoken into.
› The microphone should always be turned off when only a cassette playback mode is
being used, to save on power consumption that discharges batteries faster.
