Yeah I am waiting for the bickering to start, so far though they have unanimously picked - must be a twin thing LOL It'll probably happen when they have listened to each one once. By then they'll have favorites.

Here's a the site that shows what they look like : Playaway® and Playaway View™ preloaded audio and video players
I have seen these. They are really neat. I bought one for a gift for a teen I used to watch. He was blind (and other health issues) and I did respite care for his mom here and there when she needed someone. He loved books on tape and too be read to - it was the perfect gift for him.
