Help me find a cool Walkman cassette player that also plays MP3s

My soon to be 12 year old daughter wants a Walkman for her birthday. Thanks Star Lord! She only has a couple cassettes though so, while I appreciate her enthusiasm, it seems like it'd be something that won't get a whole lotta use.

So is there a walkman out there that has an SD slot that also PLAYS MP3s? I see plenty that convert tapes to MP3s but I can't seem to find one that plays them as well. Also ran across one that looks like a walkman and plays MP3s but doesn't play tapes.

DVDtalkers...hook me up!

That sounds cool, but I don’t know that it exists. But tapes are like a quarter at most used record stores and thrift stores.

Can you get a cassette recorder, hook it up to your computer, and make her some cool mix tapes?

I've seen plenty that let you go the other way. Play a cassette and convert it to MP3 on the PC. That's why it's weird to me that none of those just outright play MP3s from an SD card.

After googling a bunch it seems majorjoe may be right. What I want doesn't seem to exist. I caved and bought a used Sony Walkman on ebay.

This little gadget allows you to insert an SD card with mp3s saved, then put the gadget into a tape player and listen to them:

Amazon Amazon

That way you get the cool original Walkman and its cassette playing ability + the MP3 ability too.
