Small Rabbit Destroys Seoul With Cute

Cute filter: I'm going to Seoul for the first time in a few weeks, and my burning question is, where can I buy the Miffy mp3 player?

It is produced by Mobiblu, a Korean company, and I would like both the Miffy mp3 player and the accompanying garden dock (warning: link may destroy you with extreme cute).

Where can I buy this in Seoul and would anyone know what I might expect to pay for it? Looking at the prices online, there is a large range in prices, from $50 to $100 USD or around 350 RMB (on Taobao) for just the player alone.

No idea on the cost, but you'll find the best deals at the Yongsan Electronics Market as it has 5000+ stores. It's also right at the subway stop.

OMG how adorable is that! Watching the answers here for future reference.

Ok, found it on Amazon, at $50 a bit pricey for a 2 gig player, but who cares, right? Docking station sold separately.

Yongsan for sure.

DealExtreme has it for $18.10, shipped. No docking station, though.

If you're in Seoul, why not just order online and have it shipped to your local address? Shipping takes like 2-3 days, tops.

One of the commenters suggests this is a cheap copy of the real thing, hence no docking station.

Response by poster: Hi everyone,

I just wanted to write a follow-up to this. I went to Seoul over the weekend and found the Miffy player with the dock and two changes of silicone clothes at Yongsan's iPark Mall. I just bought it at the first vendor that I found it carrying the mp3 player. I paid 100,000 KRW for it (about 85 USD), bargaining it down a bit from 130,000 KRW.

One caveat, even though it is utterly adorable, the sound quality out of the speaker/dock is pretty poor and not very loud, considering the price.
