MINNIE SPEAKER by iHOME
For your Disney obsessed kids, we’d like to introduce you to the world of music. All children will absolutely love toting around this cool purse-like Minnie speaker case or setting their iPod onto a Mickey themed dock.
Compatible with most standard MP3 players via an audio jack, the water resistant speaker case (also comes in 3 other character themes) holds them tightly inside with a velcro strap, while showing what’s playing through the thin plastic window that allows you to change songs and navigate MP3 players, even those with touch screens. The top has 2 standard headphone jacks for quiet listening with friends. Disney designs make these speakers an instant hit with the kids and keep your iPod clean and safe inside. There is no better and easier way to foster love of music in your gradeschooler this holiday season while incorporating MP3 players into their play without the fear of breakage.
