I love gadget websites and often shop on iwoot or firebox as its full of cool gadgets, unusual and strange gifts too.
For my birthday last year i received some firebox gift vouchers and had used all but a fivers worth of the vouchers and i couldn't let the £5 go to waste so naturally i had to spend it before the voucher run out. Firebox didn't have much under £5 apart from this cute reindeer modpod as the christmas season was just around the corner i decided to buy it bring festive fun to my phone for season.
The reindeer modpod cost £3.99 with £2.99 postage so i paid with the voucher and put a small amount towards to postage.
I love phone charms so thought the modpod would be fun to have. Reindeer modpod comes packaged in clear plastic and can see the modpod from the packaging, it has a small cardboard inlay with the instructions on how to attach to modpod to your phone and what the modpod actually does.
The modpod is a clear oval shaped pod with a grey plastic base that has modpod written on it. At the top of the modpod is a thin black corded loop, this attaches to the a mobile phone. Inside the clear case is a small reindeer figure, the reindeer looks more like a cartoon very cute looking too with a red nose.
When the reindeer modpod is attached to the phone the magic begins. If someone calls my mobile or i get a text the modpod starts flashing red , its very bright and could not be missed but when flashing the reindeer starts spinning around like a mad thing. Even when my mobile is on silent the modpod still reacts that's another thing i liked about the modpod because my mobile is often on silent when i'm driving or at work but sits somewhere i can see it flashing and i know to check my phone if its important i can return the call.
The flashing is very bright and gave me a little fright to start with as i didn't really know what the modpod did. It doesn't make any noise.
The modpod does not take batteries or anything, it runs off radio waves off the mobile phone. Modpods are quiet small in sizes measuring around 3cm high and 2cm wide. You can get all different kinds of modpod characters in including santa, little miss naughty, bunny, penguin, puppy, and a kitten.
The modpod works with all mobile phones and most mobile networks apart from 3.
I think these are fun to have and i have found mine to be reliable only flashes and spins when calls or texts are being received. I used my reindeer modpod all through december then took it off my phone , i do hope to use it again this year as i checked and still working.
Fun little gadget for mobile phones recommended.
Rudolph the red nosed reindeer... had a very shiny... dome. Watch your little reindeer flash and spin when a call comes in.
