VIDEO: What Do Today's Kids Think Of...The Walkman?


We've seen to many changes in technology over the last generation or so that some of the greatest innovations from the childhood of a Generation X-er (like me) are completely obsolete today. For example, my nieces have been aware of what "listening to records" is for a long time because I have a record player at my house. But a couple of years ago, when the oldest of the girls, now 9, saw a record outside the sleeve for the first time, she said, "Wow! That's a big CD!"

It's fascinating to see kids react to older technology. The Fine Bros., who have created some of the funniest videos anywhere with the React Series on YouTube, have tackled that topic with their latest video, "Kids React To Walkmans."

Of course the kids' reactions are priceless. One girl immediately thinks she's looking at a phone, while another, when she can't figure out how to use it, exclaims, "I feel so judged right now!" The kids "ooh" and "ah" at the cassettes and laugh at the headphones -- "My grandpa has some of these!" To a man - er, to a child - all of them prefer today's digital technology to the old school cassette player. Then again, who wouldn't? Check it out for yourself:
