  1. I love the idea of the headphones, but worry a little about the fact that they do not seem to have volume-limiting on them.

    There are some that are almost as inexpensive, but that will protect the kids’ ears better – http://www.macworld.com/article/2474698/small-heads-safe-ears-the-best-headphones-for-kids.html

    Just a thought!

  2. just to be clear – I realize that comment sounded a little negative, so please know that I donated to the project, was just throwing out an idea! 🙂

    1. I appreciate your concern. It’s a very valid one. I believe there are limitations to the selections the teachers can make through DonorsChoose.org. I’ll forward your concern to Mrs. Mellos. Thank you for your support!
