I have a 16-month-old at home and am loving the LFM-1 Plus! My old sub was front-firing (Mirage Omni S8), and my son was constantly taking the grill off, turning the knobs behind it, and generally messing about with it.... The LFM-1 is like a rock - safe from destructive hands! He doesn't even pay it any mind - there's really nothing he can do to it. I definitely recommend it - it's real nice to not have to worry about it.
Sounds great, too - I watched Tron the other night at the suggestion of several from this forum and was blown away. Really cool - adds a whole new dimension to movie watching! The movie itself was so-so (what's with that ending?), but the bass more than made up for it!
This weekend we're babysitting our niece & nephew at ages 4 & 7, I'm thinking about renting How to Train your Dragon as that one is at the top of a lot of people's subwoofer must watch list, too..... Looking forward to that!
Good luck with your decision! My vote is to go with the LFM-1 Plus and forget about the Rythmik! Not only is there a grill to remove and a speaker behind it to tap/hit/claw/smear milk/jelly/other sticky substances on, but that giant port in the front is just begging for your kid to put whatever he can in there... Matchbox cars, blocks, bottles, car keys, etc..... Save yourself the aggravation!
