Hi, my name is Jamie and I am an Angry Birds addict. How about you? If you have not had the pleasure of playing this ridiculously fun game on your iPod, iPhone, smart phone, etc. then I suggest you try it out. The concept of the game is simple. You slingshot a variety of birds into strategically constructed blocks with evil piggies and try to eliminate the pigs before you run out of birds. Sounds strange, I know, but it is tons of fun. I am certainly not the only one who thinks so because Angry Birds has become quite the franchise and Think Geek, the online go-to store for all things nerdy and fun, has some really great Angry Birds products.
Angry Bird Speakers are available in the following options:
Red Bird: Compatible with anything you can plug a 3.5 mm jack into. That's any music player, any phone, any tablet, any gaming system. If you can plug headphones into it, your can use Red Bird to amplify its sound. The included stand will hold up most devices, but isn't necessary for the function of Red Bird as a speaker.
Black Bird: Compatible with iPod, iPad, and iPhone only. Dock your device on the included stand and the Black Bird will amplify your tunes.
Helmet Pig: Compatible with iPod and iPhone only. Dock your device on top of Pig's helmet to hear your tunes blast forth.

Review: I received a Red Bird Angry Birds Speaker to review. I must say that I am extremely impressed with the packaging. Look how cute it is:
The speaker itself is totally awesome. It is bigger than I thought it would be, but I absolutely love it. It is very sturdy and plugging in my iPod is a cinch. The sound quality is also very good. It runs on an AC adapter and there is a stand included to hold your electronic device while your music is playing. It brings a smile to my face every time I see it sitting on my son's bookshelf (yes, he totally confiscated it). Thumbs up from me for ease of use, sound quality, and visual appeal!
Buy it here: The Red Bird Angry Bird Speakers can be purchased from ThinkGeek for $79.99 but is on sale right now for $64.99.
