While I still buy CDs — the Microsoft PlaysForSure debacle is just more steel for my resolve not to buy songs over iTunes, and I’m not going to pay a premium to get my music without DRM — I didn’t think I was likely to ever buy a CD player again. I mean, really: CDs are just a one-off means of conveyance for me to transfer the music I want to hear from the record store to my iPod, like an iridescent, optical plastic bag. But man, this Disney CD player and radio in the shape of Stitch’s decapitated head is pretty righteous. You just cram your disc down his gullet and the music reverberates out of his ears; the control buttons are encalcified on his plaque-encrusted teeth. It’s Japan only, though, so I’m unlikely to cave to the temptation. If you’re interested in importing it, though, it seems to be going for about $90.
