Of all of Apple’s creations, the iPod is a sentimental favorite. For many, it was their first Apple device.
An iPod-inspired action figure called iBoy could be your gateway to other Apple-inspired toys from Hong Kong toymaker Philip Lee.
Should it raise another $8,000, Lee will offer a black-and-red model inspired by the iPod U2 special edition.
The iBoy looks just like your classic iPod, except with a face and magnetic limbs. Like Lee’s other Apple-esque toys, the iBoy resembles a friendly robot.
iBoy: An iPod-inspired toy
Hence the name of Lee’s company, Classicbots. All of his toys have been funded through Kickstarter campaigns and successfully produced.
Lee made a plush version of the classic Macintosh as well as tangerine and Bondi blue iMacs. But Lee told Cult of Mac that the iBoy remains his favorite.
The red-and-black iBoy boasts a glossy finish and a chrome back.
The iBoy can be had for $37 and, if production is not delayed, will ship in November.
