This is a great little speaker for taking out and about with you when you want to take your music on a picnic, to a festival or to the beach. Its louder than you expect for such a small speaker, and at £9.99 it is definitely a bargain!
I bought this a while ago just to take with me on holiday for the weekend just so I could listen to my own music collection rather than the radio. I ordered mine for around £9.99 from amazon and to be honest I wasnt expecting anything too great - but I was pleasantly suprised by the quality of it! It is so much louder than I expected and the sound quality, although not fantastic, is definitely a lot better than I expected too! Alot of these style of speakers can sound quite tinny and only get worse the louder you have them turned up, but this little speaker is very clear and crisp and can go alot louder without distorting the sound quality than you would expect it to be able to.
The little speaker comes in the shape of a little round penguin and stands around 10cms tall, which is tiny. It has a little keyring loop on the top so you can attach it to your bag or keys which is quite handy, its not too big so it can fit comfortably in your pocket or in your bag.
It connects to whatever music device you have using a audio jack cable. It literally works with just about any device as most if not all have an audio jack input/output socket. What is also great about this little speaker is that it is rechargable, via USB a usb cable so it can be plugged into your laptop, pc or usb mains adapter to recharge. I was concered that it would need new batteries once every hour or so but it comes complete with a power/recharging cable so there is no extra cost there, and the battery life actually lasts alot longer than I expected it to.
You can also buy this speaker in a range of other shapes and designs, including a bunny (which is slightly cheaper than the penguin design), a bear, an owl (which I think is the coolest one but I didnt notice it until after I had bought the penguin), a panda, a bomb, a devil, a koala, a raindrop, a flower and a limited edition Deadmaus one. All are available through amazon which is where I purchased mine from.
I really cannot recommend this little speaker enough, it packs a big noise for such a small speaker and at £9.99 it really was a bargain. I was expecting to discard it after my holiday but I was so suprised by how good it was I have kept it. Now I use it to listen to music in the kitchen whilst im doing the pots or as a boost for my laptop. My laptop speakers are awful so I use this to boost the sound if Im watching something on my laptop in bed. The really is a style or colour for every taste as well with the range of different animals and themes. If your looking for a good portable speaker, or a cute stocking filler for christmas that isnt just a waste of money, then this is perfect!

speakers lack in size, they make up for in volume. Big Sound - 'Less is more'; 'Don't judge a book by its cover'; 'Good things come in small packages'. There are many sayings we could use to describe the KS Mini Buddies, but for the sake of simplicity we'll just say they're surprisingly loud. Bigger sound - On its own a Mini Buddy sounds impressive, but if you want even more volume, you can connect two or more of them together for increased impact. And with the Mini Buddies coming in a variety of cute designs, it's a good excuse to collect the whole family. Ultra portable - Just because a Mini Buddy boasts big sound, it doesn't mean the speaker itself has to be big. Measuring around 50 mm wide, 55 mm high and 48 mm across, they're ultra-portable and even come with a keyring attachment, so you can hear your music out loud wherever you are. Easy to Use - Simple to use, you just plug it into your mobile, tablet, PC or music device using the 3.5 mm headphone jack and turn it on. Charging the built-in Li-ion battery can be done by simply plugging the supplied USB cable into a PC, laptop, USB mains charger or USB car charger.
