PRODUCT STORY
Remember the days of the cassette tape? Maybe you, your friends or your kids spend hours at their tape deck, surrounded by piles of cassettes, mixing together their favorite playlists to share or to keep.

Those days may be gone, but that spirit of personal expression and shared discovery lives on. It's just converted to digital! Get your groove on and share your favorite playlist with this digital mixtape. The compact USB drive has 1GB of memory, which is enough to store up to 900 minutes of music, with better sound quality than you could ever get from magnetic tape. Simply load your mp3 files onto the drive—you can even send a special message with text documents. Then pop the drive into the special cardboard gift pack, printed to look like a vintage cassette. The lid of the gift pack unfolds to give you room to write down your song titles, or to record a special message. Pass your master mix tape along to someone special, and let the music roll! Made in China.

We like the idea of creating a "Mixed Tape" digitally. Do you love this blast from the past with a modern twist?

I don't get it. What's the point? It's just kinda stupid. (And I am 42 so I remember cassettes).

meh....nothing really special about this. It's a cute idea, but I don't need a "kit" to do this.

Interesting idea, but not really worth it. USB's are so common now, especially ones with a lot more memory.

Very cute idea, but would not buy it due to Made in China.

We look back at those cassettes and it brings back great feelings but we also laugh at how bad they sounded compared to today. Why would I buy something that implies poor quality? This is the kind of thing someone might get then throw out in a month or two. Total novelty item and Uncommon goods is better than that

1G isn't useful anymore. I would buy multiples if they were 8g or more

*maybe* if it were really inexpensive I would consider it. USB drives at 1GB are distributed like candy at expos these days. Even 8GB go for around $10 at big box stores. Also, this doesn't mention the speed of the drive, which is key to understanding value of the tech these days (yes, even with USB drives).
