I’ve been trying out the stylish looking Crosley Songbird Radio in the last few weeks, so wanted to share my thoughts with you.
Features We Love:
Well obviously as you can see it looks great. With a retro, vintage feel, this little portable radio would look good in any home. It also has a carry handle allowing you to move it around the house easily. It is battery-powered or can be used with the AC adaptor if you prefer it to remain stationary.
I’ve actually given this radio to my eldest daughter aged 10, and she adores it. She’s at that age where she’s really loving her music, and whilst she has her own ipod and bluetooth speakers, she hasn’t had her own radio. So she was so excited to give this a go.
She spent a long time identifying the stations she liked, and has made herself a list so she can access them easily. When I asked her what she really liked about it, she said she loved the choices of stations, the fact it was portable, and that she can set her alarm and wake up to the sound of Radio 1. I must admit, the whole house seems to be waking up to her radio at the moment!
In 1920, Powel Crosley introduces the first low price radio for the masses, called the Harko, that sold for just $7 and much less than the $100 price tag on radios at that time.
In 2013, Crosley Radio continues to expand its product line creating vintage-inspired electronics incorporating the latest technologies such as iPod docks, Bluetooth and MP3 capabilities.
What to Consider:
The Crosley Songbird retails at around £30 and is available to buy on Amazon. Of course, it’s not a DAB radio, and you wouldn’t expect that at this price range, so do consider this if that’s what you’re after. This is a standard AM/FM radio, that picks up a good signal when the aerial is out. It looks great though, and offers a stylish alternative to many standard portable alarm radios.
Overall, we are all delighted with this great value, great looking radio and the excitement it’s brought to our daughter.
Thanks to Crosley for gifting the radio, thoughts and comments are genuine and my own.
