With Iron Man 3 being released a few weeks ago, Thor 2 coming up in November, and buzz for The Avengers 2 already starting to build, I think it’s safe to say that Disney & Marvel’s The Avengers super hero characters are very popular. I know they are in my house! My husband is a bit of a Marvel geek and he’s got our three year old into it now. So, I was excited to receive for review* an iHome Iron Man Portable Speaker. As you can see, Donovan was thrilled when he saw it…he took a break from playing with his lion mask to check it out.
The speaker comes with the cord for charging it and hooking it up to an audio device—it works with any device that has a headphone jack, not just iPods. The battery is rechargeable, which is great because I despise products that constantly require new batteries. And to charge it, you just need to plug it into the USB port on your computer or to the USB charger for your iPhone/iPod. It’s compact and lightweight…and of course it’s super cute!
After charging the battery for a bit, Donovan and I had a little dance party. I plugged it into my iPhone and put on Donovan’s Disney music playlist. He thought it was very silly that Iron Man was singing “Circle of Life” and told me, “Iron Man is loud!”
And he was! I was surprised by the quality of the sound from such a small and lightweight device. But, it turned up pretty loud and the sound was clear and crisp. It would work great for a backyard BBQ or to bring some tunes with you as you clean the house…or do some blogging. 🙂 And my husband now wants one to take to his office!
They also have The Hulk and Captain America versions of the speaker as well as child sized headphones for each of the characters. If you’re looking for a fun Father’s Day gift for a music lover, this would work great. Or, at just $24.99 it’d be a great just because sort of present, too! Visit Amazon.com to purchase the iHome portable speakers for the Marvel fan in your life.
