PRODUCT STORY
Mix some hard-rock street cred with a little earth-loving, acoustic jam, and you'll find yourself tuning right in to this unique, cardboard radio. Designed to be gentler on the environment by using recyclable materials, the brown cardboard exterior conceals a 9 Watt speaker that will rock the world with your favorite jams. Extend the retractable antenna to pick up FM radio, or use the included audio input cord to connect with audio from your mp3 player. You can even broadcast your personal sense of style by decorating the cardboard exterior with pens, paint, stickers or more. Runs on 4 AA batteries (included), or can be plugged into an outlet using a standard DC power adapter (not included). Made in China.

We love that this Earth-friendlier radio can also be an art project. Would you decorate this musical drawing board, or leave it as is for an old school boom "box" look?

Yay! First comment! I think this is an excellent product and I can think of a few people off the top of my head that would enjoy receiving this as a gift. Wait...I think I'm doing it wrong - let me try this one more time. What!? Made in CHINA!?? and $40!!? How can you live with yourselves Uncommon Goods! (/sarcasm off)

$40 cardboard? Greasy fingers are always attracted to cardboard. Pass on this one.

considering that this is cardboard and could get ruined with the first spill I think its too highly priced would need to be waterproofed

$40. for a radio that my dog, cat, or even 6 year old could crush? Love the idea, would consider purchasing if the price were more reasonable.
