Kiddy Mini Speaker Is for People, Not Cats

by Paul Strauss

Frankly, I’m not a big fan of portable add-on speakers for mobile devices – especially ones which don’t really boost the sound very much, or which don’t connect wirelessly. The way I figure it, you either listen through your headphones, or you wait until you get home and can dock your gadget and listen through some real speakers. That said, if you really have to amplify your sound without carrying around a big speaker, then you might want to check out the Kiddy Mini Speaker.

The Kiddy Mini Speaker is just what it sounds like – a speaker for cats a tiny, brightly colored speaker you can take with you and fit in your pocket. The tiny speaker plugs into your mobile device’s 3.5mm audio jack, and outputs sound through a little bitty speaker. It measures just 1.61″ (W) x 0.98″(H) x 0.67″(D), and its little amplifier pumps out a whopping 0.8W of power.

I do like the idea of the 3.5mm plug which folds into the case when not in use. There’s also a MiniUSB port on its side for charging its built-in battery – which lasts for about 6 hours on a charge. While I’m not sure I completely buy the picture below, they do look a vaguely like miniature Tivoli PAL radios – minus the radio dial (and the price tag).

Like many fun gadgets, I don’t even know how readily you can get them outside of Asia. I stumbled onto these funky little speakers over at a Korean outfit called the Early Adopter Shop[KR], where they sell for 12,800 Korean Won (~$11 USD) each. I also found them available in wholesale quantities over at Alibaba, if you own a shop and want to see about ordering a whole mess of ’em.
