As seen on Dragons' Den. I'm not going to link to their site as I'm not advertising them, but anyone who is a Friend Of Google can find it.

The guy got the patent for combining an mp3 player and teddy then? Richard Farley seemed pretty sure he wouldn't.

I don't like the idea, personally.

And I wondered about tyhat i- prefix too - not seen as treading on Apple's toes then? The name does rather imply it is an Apple product, like iPod and iMac.

Not my gumdrop buttons!

Mine got an MP3 for xmas there and she hardly uses it to be honest.

Kids don't have time alone to listen to music by themselves - if they do then there is something wrong. Its only us anti-social adults that want to ignore people in general who should have them - you dont have to interact with the unwashed masses on the train do you then?

Same with all this electrical nonsense in their rooms - i think it just encourages them to stay in.

I let mine out of the broom cupboard in the morning and kick them out to play with the pebbles outside every day.....

JeremyVile · 12/08/2007 00:58

You let them come out of the cupboard, you say?

Hmmm, a novel and interesting approach......

EricL · 12/08/2007 11:31

If they're lucky they get to lick the road for supper.......

JeremyVile · 12/08/2007 11:34

Well, if you will take the liberal approach....on your own head be it.

FlameBatfink · 12/08/2007 11:50

I let them out of the cupboard sometimes too... but generally only into the big dog cage in the garden. I move it round every so often, they cut the grass for me with teeny tiny blunt scissors.
