Julius Dance Machine ™ product description:
Venerable audio manufacturer SpeakerCraft has partnered with culturally witty designer, Paul Frank Industries to create the Julius Dance Machine™.
The market’s first truly fun, transportable Apple iPod compatible docking station with specially crafted stereo loudspeakers, the Julius Dance Machine has been designed in the form of Paul Frank’s most recognized and beloved character Julius.
Compatible with any model in the Apple iPod™ product line, the Julius Dance Machine is packaged in fun and compelling retail box packaging. The product is designed for intuitive operation by the broadest possible range of iPod users today via its interchangeable dock and can accept extra sources such as a computer via it’s built-in 3.5” mini jack input. The NiMH battery will allow Julius to play up for 6 hours between recharges under normal conditions via its fully certified wall plug transformer.
Additional features include, power on and battery status LEDs as well as custom-tuned, digitally amplified 2.5” full range speakers for enhanced bass and extended highs.

From young children to teens to designer savvy adults, it’s the first iPod docking station that your customers will want to pet.
