Gear4 catapults in Angry Birds speakers

Gear4 has gripped on to the latest udder for the Angry Birds cash-cow - speakers shaped as characters from the popular game.

Why not eh? After all, we've had cakes, iPhone cases, fluffy toys, hard toys, keychains, hoodies, t-shirts, lunch boxes, silk ties, school kits, socks and even flip-flops - so why not big plastic speakers shaped like cartoon birds (and pigs)?

In Gear 4's set of three you've a choice between the red bird, the black bird (which support iPad charging) and a helmet-wearing pig (with iPhone / iPod dock built in).

Tom Dudderidge, founder and CEO of Gear4 said: "We’ve been delighted with the response to Gear4’s Angry Birds products. Our Angry Birds cases have proved incredibly successful and we’re really excited to be adding to the nest! The speakers look fantastic and we’re looking forward to seeing how people respond to the unique designs."

Priced at  £49 to £69 the Angry Birds speakers come with a docking station for iPod, iPhone or iPad, and a 3.5mm audio cable input with crate stand. They're available now.
