Taking photo personalisation a step further


In the digital age, photos aren't just for slapping onto mugs and greeting cards. Swiss company bumbi offers the "never-miss-me-again doll": a huggable (if somewhat odd-shaped) wool doll with a slot where a photograph can be inserted as the doll's face. The doll comes with a mask to help you measure a 2" photo for the perfect fit. With family and friend networks becoming more scattered across the globe these days, this could be a simple and playful way of helping a little tyke to remember what a distant grandparent or relative looks like.

The photo's not all the bumbi can do. It also comes with a recording device inside, so that it can be personalised with a voice message. Record your message until you've gotten it word-perfect, then remove the recorder, seal up the doll and hand it over to the recipient.


In other photo personalisation news, Griffin is taking its iClear iPod protector one step further by developing a customisable photo model, with a new slot in the back for a photograph. Frame templates are provided to get the sizing right, and the iClear Custom will be available for the 2nd generation iPod nano and full-size iPod with Video.

Bumbi is available for $54 or EUR39, and ships worldwide. iClear Custom is not yet on sale.
