There are plenty of squares in the music business but we're pretty sure there aren't any cubes. And there definitely aren't any CUBees. Hardly surprising, because despite their staggering originality and undeniable cuteness, music moguls are unlikely to be impressed by a boxy bunch of singing, flapping farmyard animals.
But what do industry bigwigs know about music, for Cliff's sake! Not much, because we confidently predict CUBees are going to be absolutely huge. CUBees might look just like cute little plastic boxes with adorable animal faces (and they are!) but each colourful cubic crooner sings three delightful ditties. Just press the button on the CUBees, er, head, and it will open and close its front face flap and quack, moo, oink, chirp, meow or bark a classic song.
With material such as Yankee Doodle Dandy, London Bridge, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Old MacDonald you might be wondering what gives CUBees that all-important x-factor. Well, apart from the fact you don't see square animals singing and flapping that often, CUBees can also sing in choral harmony. No, really!
Stack 'em and rack 'em together and your CUBees will perform as a duo, trio or complete chorus. Whichever CUBee you position on top of the pile belts out the lead while the others sing back-up. A bit like that group G4, only you don't have to watch CUBees through your fingers in abject embarrassment.
CUBees are sold in twins or trios but the more you collect the more fun you'll have. Just think, you'll be the musical director of your very own vocal harmony group without the tantrums, diva-ish demands and deadwood member who wants to go solo.
CUBees make great gifts and perfect desktop companions, and they're guaranteed to raise a smile each and every time they flap out their jovial jingles. Managing a musical menagerie has never been such fun. Oink!

CUBee's! What can I say? Fantastic. Guaranteed to brighten up anyone's day. Got them this morning, spent the rest of the day, showing them to everyone... and each left with a big smile on their faces. Whatever age, young or old, you can't help but appreciate their fundamental cuteness. Well worth every penny... Now just to get the second pack! Matt Smith, Kettering (UK) - 27th July 2005
Bought this for my girlfriend for her birthday and its brilliant!! Next day delivery having ordered at 3 the previous afternoon as well... very impressed. Steve, Doncaster - 26th July 2005
Recieved my CUBees today, funny or what? Probably funnier if you've had a few drinks but they're cute all the same :-) Gem, Lancs - 1st July 2005
