We ordered these prior to our 9.5 hour road trip to my parents-in-law's house so our 2.5 year old could watch movies to pass to the time. These made the trip SO MUCH BETTER than I imagined!
I hung the monitor that did NOT contain the DVD on the back of the front passenger seat, so that if my toddler kicked the screen (which - she did!), it wouldn't damage the DVD (and it didn't). (OK! FINE! My wife suggested this AFTER I had mounted the DVD player on the seat! Happy?!) It was also much easier for me to change the DVD, while my wife was driving. (Alright, ladies, you can wipe that grin off your faces, ok? I got it!)
Bottom line, the non-DVD-player side is fairly durable - withstands a few kicks from a toddler - and overall the concept is sublime. I like the fact that they are removable from the car. So, now that we're home, and the player is removed from the car, my toddler is not requesting to watch movies on our way to the store or to daycare. Because, frankly, I'd rather she watch the real world from her window for 20 minutes or less. I think, if we had built in players, she would always want to watch a movie and never notice the cows at the end of our street. And a two and half year old really should be noticing cows at the end of their street.
(Alright. This was really written by Wade's wife. Teeheehee) But seriously - LOVE the DVD Player! :)
