MacRumors Giveaway: Win an 'iBoy' Retro iPod Toy From Classicbot

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with designer Philip Lee of Classicbot to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win an iBoy, which is a cute little desktop toy that's been designed as an homage to Apple's 2001 iPod Classic.

Philip Lee makes a whole range of eye-catching Apple-themed toys and products that are perfect for Apple fans and Apple merchandise collectors. The iBoy is Lee's newest creation, released in November 2020, and it's his most detailed and ambitious to date.

The iBoy is a cross between a little robot and a classic iPod, featuring a functional rotating click wheel complete with clickable buttons, an iPod-style mirror-like finish on the back, EarPod antennas, magnetic arms and legs, and simple but endearing facial expression.

There are no electronic parts inside the iBoy as this is an iPod replica figurine that's meant for display, but it does look like a functional MP3 player. The working click wheel with its satisfyingly clickable buttons turns the iBoy into a desk toy that's perfect for fidgeting with during a stressful day.

The magnetic arms and legs can be detached and there's an included headphone wire that can be added to morph the iBoy from robot mode to an MP3 player mode that even more closely resembles the iPod.

iBoy is made from an iPod-like glossy white ABS plastic with silk-screened details and full ports and iPod details that make it unmistakable as a toy robot inspired by the iPod's design. For those who prefer a darker aesthetic, Lee has also created a U2 version of the iBoy that's colored black and red like the special edition U2 iPod that Apple released.

With my luck, THIS is the MacRumors contest I'll win. The useless piece of garbage that's even more useless than the Apple plush pillow/stuffed animal things. Yes, I am Charlie Brown, and this is the MacRumors equivalent of getting a rock when I go trick-or-treating on Halloween.


Just… don't enter the contest?

Whenever I see it, i ask myself, how come these guys haven't been sued into oblivion by Apple?

They've sued for much, much pettier things.
