Mini Mouse Music Player

This mini mouse FM radio would be a clever gag gift for individuals who don't quite feel comfortable negotiating an MP3 playlist or digital music.

There is not much of a demand for stand-alone FM radios these days, but listening to music through a cartoon mouse's rump certainly does mix it up a bit.

Implications - Not everyone is a fan of the complex technology that the digital music era has given rise to, and there is definitely something to be said for a product that embraces nostalgia in a fun and charming way like this radio does. By appealing to an older generation (which is still a large portion of the western world), products like this remind you that there is still room for aesthetic innovation when it comes to older technology.
