Now you don’t have to stick with listening to your music with the usual types of MP3 players, there are now a host of cool and cute players in the market. It is great that a lot of designers are making sure that we have a gamut to choose from.
Found two that caught my eye that I wanted to share here with you. First up is the Lego MP3 Player. Homade’s LEGO-esque media players cleverly conceal their controls into the raised dots on the surface of each block. The players come in a variety of bold primary colors, and like their snap-together doppelgangers, are made primarily from plastic. Each one comes with a built-in rechargeable Li-ion battery that should give you about 6 hours of play time, and from what I can tell, you’ll have to provide your own microSD card for storage (2GB max). At $46 a pop, they are a bit expensive for players with no included memory. But they are really cute and would really be easy to carry around.
Weird Rabbit – MashiMaro is the rabbit version of Hello Kitty and it is catching fire in Korea. Known as the “Weird Rabbit,” the character puts a humorous light to toilet habits, perhaps a way to teach children how to have fun during toilet training.
This MashiMaro is merchandising gold, so it comes as no surprise someone made an MP3 player based on it. The MsPlayer is cute, cheap and features a number of adorable attributes like those ears that light up for one reason or another and a rear end entry for the audio jack, how about that! All told, it will cost you about $44 (59,000 won in Korea) for the 2GB MP3 player. Plays MP3, WMA, ASF, OGG, APE, WAV, ACT , 54 × 38 × 38mm at 19 grams, Battery plays 9 hours of music and microphone
