Products: Mini music clips, Got Milk? stuff and more
YORK, Aug 7 (Reuters) - Want to carry your favourite Britney Spears or boy band
music discreetly in your pocket or small bag?
and Tiger Electronics have teamed up to make that possible with the introduction
of Tiger HitClips, a tiny music system that plays single music samples from a
micro-sized clip about the size of a postage stamp, via an earplug.
Aug. 11, McDonald's customers will be able to buy a HitClips Micro Music Player
for about $4.99 each (with the purchase of any regularly priced menu item), that
will come with either a Britney Spears ``Stronger'' or *NSYNC ``It's Gonna Be
Me'' Tiger Micro Music Clip.
Music Player plays one Music Clip at a time and is small enough to be attached
to clothing or backpacks. The song is an edited version of the artist's hit
single and batteries are included.
HitClips Players come in red, blue and silver and participating U.S. McDonald's
restaurants will offer them until they run out -- which is expected to be fairly
quickly as teens and preteens rush out to collect them. Later this month, Tiger,
part of Hasbro Inc., will make more artists available on the Music Clips that
will be sold at major retailers nationwide.
items from Tiger that will be able to play the tiny musical clip include a
HitClips Rockin' Micro Boombox ($9.99) that is about the size of a trading card,
and a HitClips Alarm Clock ($15), that holds five micro clips and can be
programmed to play a favourite when the alarm goes off.
