Disney iPod speakers
“We are seeing kids and tweens quickly follow the adult market in terms of technology. Gone are the days of boxy TVs and CD players. This year, kids will be looking for flat screen TVs and iPod compatible speaker docks with great sound, and our new line is very much on the forefront of this trend,” said Chris Heatherly, VP of global electronics for Disney Consumer Products.

Disney video camera - Software
The new Disney Flix Video Cam is an easy and fun to use compact handheld video camera boasting real-world features and functionality. It comes bundled with a great add-on: Disney Director software lets kids shoot and star in their own Disney movie. Software includes storyboards, sound effects, film footage, music and character voices from popular Disney films and TV shows. Kids can simply connect the camera to their PC to use the software and film their favorite scenes (SRP $99.99).

Disney LCD TV
Available in four attractive styles that kids and tweens will love, the new Disney LCD TVs feature a 15-inch viewing screen and great designs that are ideal for kids’ and tweens’ rooms. They also offer the latest technology and everything a savvy buyer wants: high-quality Sharp LCD panels, digital operation and the ability to receive digital television. The resolution is 1024 x 768 and aspect ratio is 4:3, and each model features a VGA out for use as a PC monitor. The designs are inspired by some of Disney’s biggest hits, including High School Musical, Hannah Montana, Disney Princess and Pirates of the Caribbean.

The High School Musical LCD TV is bright red, resembles a school locker and comes with stickers that let tweens personalize their TV. The Hannah Montana model is purple and silver, with a hip vibe that tween girls will love. The Disney Princess style is reminiscent of a royal carriage, with sleek lines and creamy pinks with fuchsia accents. The Pirates of the Caribbean model has a base resembling a ship and is topped with a skull & crossbones and Pirate flag. Disney LCD TVs will be available this fall at Wal-Mart, ToysRUs, Best Buy and DisneyShopping (SRP $299.99).

The High School Musical style is bright red and resembles a school locker. The purple and silver Hannah Montana speaker comes in two designs - the standard design with iPod compatible/personal media player dock and digital AM/FM alarm clock radio, and a second design featuring a guitar amp with microphone and guitar inputs so tweens can sing and play to their favorite songs while they listen to the music (this design does not include the clock feature).
