Kids React to Walkmans

It's OK to Cry When You See Kids Reacting to Walkmans

Brace yourselves. In this part of a video series called "Kids React to Technology," a bunch of youngins are given a Walkman — and they have NO idea what it is. "Oh, a phone! Oh, what is this thing?" says one little girl. "What do I do? Press play?" asks a boy. Face palm.

But wait . . . it gets worse better. When someone finally shows them the cassette that goes into the Walkman, another kids asks, "Ooh are these like in the movies?" and when they learn you need headphones to listen to the music, they think it's totally "messed up."

You have to see the whole thing, but the kicker comes when one boy claims, "I'm such a '90s kid but I wasn't born in the '90s."

It would detect complete silence as the end of the song, thus, the beginning of the next song. It works/worked great, and only on one song did it misread a silent pause in the song as the next track!

How did it know where the song stopped!?

Hilarious! My last cassette Walkman actually lets me skip tracks/songs.

this is cute....My 10 yr old found a cassette tape and I had to show him how to use it in my old stereo. He had no clue. It was hilarious to watch him use it. He prefers todays technology. Guess you do have to be from the time to appreciate the stuff from the day. Never will our children understand the unique sound of a record being played on a record player ...that unique scratchy sound that is always in the background. :-)
