OMG! I had one of these!! I had the Tiffany cassette, too!!
Elissa - October 14, 2007 - Report this comment
Mine still works, too! Although, I have to give it a few loving taps every now and then to get the sound to work. Mine is the typical girly pink one. The white one was sweet! My fave tape is Belinda Carlisle with "Heaven is a Place on Earth" and "I Get Weak." I can't believe these these things are 20 years old now...makes ME feel old!

I always wanted one growing up but my parents never got me one. I have been searching all over trying to find one to buy and its more difficult than I thought.

I can't believe these were popular so long ago! I had the black/pink one. I had Tiffany, Bon Jovi, Belinda Carlisle, the Bangles, and a few more. One of my favorite childhood "toys."
Jenny C - June 23, 2009 - Report this comment
Omg I just found mine!! I have the white one and the only tape I have is The Jets sister ruined the rest of them by pulling the tape out!

Obsessed. This is all I wanted in 3rd or 4th grade. I told my fiance about these just the other day. He hadn't heard of them.

My player was black & pink with a purple volume dial & a pink wrist cord. The only tape I had was by Madonna which featured songs "Who's That Girl" & "Material Girl". I wonder if they are for sale on Ebay?

Anyone have one they want to sell? Ican't find one on eBay...
Rich Smith - October 03, 2009 - Report this comment
Went to a yard sell found one bought it. There were 7 tapes and the earphones. It works an in perfect cond. I was too old in the 80s for them so i didn't know what they were. I may put it on e-bay.

I still have mine with my Bangles tape, My favorite, but I remember having 3 other tapes as well and the purse. (gone into the abyss of time now I guess.. actually I distinctly remember losing my Tiffany tape at the playground..) I would LOVE to have more tapes if anyone is willing to sell. My mom buying mine when I was 3 (!!!) is one of my first memories so it's sentimental to me!!!
Ailey - October 24, 2009 - Report this comment

I had a white one, but never got any tapes other than the one it came with. It had Tequila and LaBamba. The tape didnt last very long.
KSpice - November 07, 2009 - Report this comment
I had TONS of tapes. Got me through summer camp every year. Mike & the Mechanics. Tiffany. Debbie Gibson. Amy Grant. Taylor Dayne. Madonna. The Bangles. Huey Lewis & the News. I think I still have it actually. Wonder if it works?

I would love to buy one of these. I had one growing up with several tapes but I don't know what happened to it over the years. KT what are you willing to sell it for? Are you planning on putting it on ebay?
BN - April 10, 2010 - Report this comment
Found mine today, along with a few tapes in a plastic holder...I had more tape, just not sure where they wondered off to
Tiffany - May 29, 2010 - Report this comment
CRAZY is DEFINITALEY what I get when I mention them to people to, I'm always like "Pocket Rockers! You know!" Once I describe them I finally get an "OH YEAH!!!" I loved mine! I remember walking around the playground in Kindergarten listening to Tiffany, The Bangles, Belinda Carlisle, etc. You weren't cool if you didn't have one. I wish I still had one!
heidi - June 08, 2010 - Report this comment
Oh my! My husband and I were talking about these things and i thought I'd look them up, not thinking I'd actually find them! I had tapes with Tequila and La Bamaba! Wish I could find one now that works!

The commerical for this used an old song, "Down on the corner, out in the street...and I thought it played oldies so I didn't want one! I read about all the cool 80's artists you all had...boy did I miss out! Dang!

how much did a pocket rocker cost in the 80s?
Amber - October 03, 2012 - Report this comment
I still have mine, it is the white with what looks like paint splatter. And have 22 tapes with it, some of them included are Fat Boys, Bon Jovi, Air Supply, Bangles, Tiffany, etc. It still works, and every tape plays. Loved this thing!
Amber - October 03, 2012 - Report this comment
Sorry, this is the same Amber again. I also have the stand for it, with two pocket rocker speakers that hook to it. Something that I have always held onto. If anyone is interested in it, you can contact me at

What company made these players? I remember it like it was yesterday but there is little info on the net
eileena - February 24, 2013 - Report this comment
I had the white w graffitI on it. This conversation is so funny because I remember pulling it out 15 years ago and realizing it still worked funny how toys back then survived as well as my was a watch animal that went around the wrist it was a blue bunny. I no longer have these because my old landlord robbed me of my childhood materials as well as my entire apartment. Any how I have two boys one 6 one 2 and im sure after there in their late 20's not a dam toy they had is going to work it's great if a toy lasted 2 years now ...everything is made so cheaply now a days. Anyway I had some good times w that rockin out to the bangles and didn't the tape flip over and play the second song. I had I think were alone now Tiffany and walk like an Egyptian and some guy no clue and taquila by whom ever sings that song. Goodtimes :^)
