Does your mobile phone look ever so slightly dull? If the answer is yes, you could do with a few Fonies. These impossibly cute critters are set to take the world of mobile phone danglies (of course there's one) by storm, because as well as being totally adorable they double up as screen cleaners.
Add some cuteness to your phone!
Yes, we realise that your beloved new companion may not appreciate being wiped all over a grubby screen but needs must. After all your mobile's screen is no longer an underused luxury; it's an essential window to the wonders within, used for photography, picture messaging, gaming and more.
Clean your screen!
Meet the Fonies (L-R): Bart, Englebert, Otto, Manuel and Pedro
Screen cleaning aside, Fonies are a great way of personalising your phone. And with several different characters to collect you can use them to change the appearance of your mobile to suit your every mood. We guarantee you'll be unable to suppress a grin every time you pull your phone out - even if it's the boss, mother-in-law or (insert your nemesis of choice here) calling.
Fonies don't light up, spin, dance, play tunes or even vibrate, but there's something rather reassuring about dangling a squishy thingy from your phone. Maybe it's their sheer simplicity that makes them so unfathomably desirable.
We think Fonies are going to be the next big (little) thing in cutesy mobile peripherals. And they're not just for kids and dangly-loving adults - Gordon Brown's already ordered a couple and Vladimir Putin's collecting the whole set.
Your new friend Otto!
Okay, we made that up but Fonies are so utterly irresistible we wouldn't be surprised if Messrs Brown and Putin were smitten. Besides, they look like they need cheering up. And so do you (of course we can see you), so hurry up and get ordering.
