iGuy for iPod mini joins the family

imageSpeck Products today added a new version of its iGuy posable “friend” for Apple’s iPod mini. The white rubberized toy/case features bendable arms and legs, docking capability and a screen protector. iGuy mini is priced at $34.95 and fits both 4GB and 6GB iPod minis.

“Since our explosive iGuy release in May, mini iPod owners have been anticipating the release of iGuy mini,” said Tim Hickman, general manager of Speck. “The iGuy mini is even more portable than his big brother. The smaller size makes it much lighter and easier to carry around.”

The iGuy might be fun to have… if it was $10, not $35!

Perfect for those who always wanted to replay a little SNL Mr. Bill skit with their iPod/Mini.

“Ohhhhh nooooo…...” (crunch)


Er, meanwhile, the ‘toilet’ reference is great, symbolically appropriate AND cool at the same time.  And the concept of Claymation possibilities with your iPod/Mini…Speck has a winner (assuming that the material they use is better than that KRATON garbage they use in other products).

Really cool! Hey, it’s just a fun cover for your gadget. You either like it or you don’t. Either is fine. As for me, I can dig it, I’d buy it.
