Because Two is Better than One!

Who in their right mind would pick just one, when you can just as easily get two? Most kids would riding in the back seat would have to agree. Lets face it, children have a tough time riding in the car just about anywhere over five minutes. Unless of course your taking them to get ice cream, or maybe an amusement park. Unfortunately for everyone else in car, that's just not the case 9 times out of 10. For the rest of those situations, do everyone a favor and get yourself a pair of LCD screens with a built-in DVD player to keep them busy. The Philips PD7012/37 is just that!

The Philips PD7012 is a parents and kids dream. With Two 7 Inch LCD screens, and a built-in DVD player that can play back just about any disc, children will have plenty of options to keep themselves busy. To offer an added bonus, Philips included a nice, quiet headphone jack on both units. Can you even begin to imagine that? Peace and quiet on a long road trip? Its hard to believe, we know. But we also know its true! The PD7012 would not sell the experience short by allowing the kids to fumble around this golden monitor, disconnect the cables, etc. So they also included the car installation kit, allowing the 7" monitors to mounted securely on the back of the headrests. Go on, give them their own personal movie theater experience! A Built-In Table-Top stand enables the monitor to rest stable on the counter, desk, dresser, nightstand, or any other place needed for use at home. Let Nemo be found on your long road trip. Disney and Pixar have a whole arsenal of distractions. With the included AC, and DC charger kits, keeping power on these babies will be the last of your worries. So you can get to driving, they can get to watching, and everyone will be happy in the end.

Great Set! Easy Install!

September 20, 2013

This has been great! Kids are quiet, and I can take them to their mothers house every other weekend. Its a 4 hour drive, so they have really gotten some good use out of this the last two months. price is excellent! My son is 4, and he kept pressing the wrong button, unplugging it, something causing our previous portable DVD player to stop running. This is great. Keeps it out of reach, but in perfect range of sight. My only complaint would be no remote. I think that would have been nice, but I dont know that its a necessary option.
