We ran across the irresistible Woogie 2 by Griffin and had to snap a picture of it to show our readers. The Woogie 2 is a soft, plush, huggable, toy that doubles as an Apple iPhone or iPod touch case. It’s obviously meant for children, to give them something to hold up their iPod touch for easy game playing or video watching, or to protect your iPhone if you’re letting them use it. With big round body and five legs, the Woogie is easy to position whether it’s on the floor, a table, in a car, or on a lap. The Woogie 2 can be purchased in Griffin’s online store for $19.99 and is available in either pink or blue. It was designed in the United States and is made with non-toxic materials.
