i laugh and feel extremely old at the fact that my youngest nieces and nephew wouldn't know what to do with a walkman. let alone a cassette tape! in fact, my youngest niece laughed at my mom's ipod - my mom has one of the bulky first ones to come out.
in the age of smaller and sleeker, a walkman definitely is old school. kids today couldn't imagine having to blindly rewind and fast forward and hope they find the song they were looking for. or make a mix tape in order to listen to all of your favorite artists at once instead of switching the tapes in and out. ha!
