In my own experience, so many of the cute tech gifts out there that are obviously aimed at tweens and teens don’t seem to pack as much punch or power for the price as I believe they should. Basically, you end up paying for the pretty design as opposed to the actual technology. But that’s definitely not the case with Speakal’s iPig – just one of the slew of cool gifts we’ve got on our Cool Mom Tech Holiday Gift Guide.
This little pink piggy isn’t just a looker–it charges and
plays your iPod thanks to five speakers and a 15W subwoofer. Or should
that be suboinker? (heh).
The sound quality for such a small gadget is
pretty impressive. And I personally love the humanized volume control,
which involves a light touch on the pig’s ears – no fumbling around for a
teeny button on the side or having to rely on a remote control which you probably lost the third week.
My personal vote? If you’ve got a
music lovin’ tween or teen in your house this holiday or just like cute things yourself, you should let this piggy
wee wee wee all the way to your home. -Kristen
You can find the very cool iPig from Speakal, and over 75 (yes, oh yes) gifts on our Cool Mom Tech Holiday Gift Guide!
