Even Disney is getting into the lucrative iPod accessories market. The company has unveiled a range of nine covers designed for the iPod Nano and decorated with a variety of Disney animated characters.

In the words of Disney: “The Disney Wrap is designed to protect your iPod nano from bumps and scratches, while at the same time giving it a fabulous new look”.

Although they look more like something that should be given away in McDonald’s Happy Meals, they apparently offer tough protection in the form of either a PVC cover or a silicone skin. Each has a transparent screen protector and click wheel cover.

The list of Disney characters emblazoned on them includes Tinkerbell, Winnie the Pooh and various friends, and Minnie and Mickey Mouse.

Available from Claire’s Accessories, each one costs £10 from October.
