IPODs Fail After Just Over 1 Year?

Like many people, we bought Ipods (Generation 4)for our older children. Now after just over 1 year of use, both of them are dead. One doesn't play at all and the other one doesn't allow you to select a song using the thumbwheel to play.
An informal survey of the friends of our children revealed that of 19 Ipods, only 2 Ipods that were purchased during the last school year are still working -- but these devices were purchased for Christmas or for a February birthday.
Most of the devices were Generation 4, although a few were Nanos.
Has anyone else experienced something similar?
And if so, did you purchase another Ipod (since the warranty has expired) or another MP3 device, or did you just decide to "do without"?
