iBaby: $50 Stroller-shaped iPod/Baby Case From Kolcraft

kolcraft_ibaby_stroller.jpg$50 might seem like a lot to pay for a run-of-the-mill umbrella stroller, even if it does recline.

$50 would seem a bit steep for an iPod case, even one with a little speaker built into it.

But what if it were $50 for BOTH? TOGETHER? IN ONE, GREAT PRODUCT?

That's the thinking behind the Kolcraft iBaby [TM], anyway, which comes with a little plastic bracket to fit an iPod or the now-discontinued iPod Mini and an audio jack to an inexplicably undescribed speaker. The speaker can be directed into the stroller or up toward the pusher, as you like.

The real lesson here, of course: if you want the blogosphere to erupt over your product, just throw an 'i' in front of it. Thanks to the 80 DT readers who sent this in! [via bloggingbaby, tuaw, which are really the same thing...]

If you want a stroller ipod/mp3/cd player combo log on to ebay and check out the myriad of "acoustic canopy" strollers for sale by combi ranging from 50 to 100 USD.
PS apologize if two blank messages got sent prior

[they didn't, and thanks for mentioning the Combi's; I tested one as part of a Slate stroller smackdown. The canopies have little pockets for speakers and player, and holes to thread the wires through. I think it's a better option, frankly, and more important, a better stroller. -ed.]
