Long before iPhones, iPads and MP3 players was the cassette. It was an innovative device in the 80s that continued on to the early 90s before the CD desolated it. Now you can go down memory lane with your own retro cassette player…but this a new-school twist! The Retro Cassette Player is actually a portable speaker for your iPhone that only looks like a cassette deck. It’s compatible with iPhone 4/4s and 5/5s models, and it’s guaranteed not to eat your tape! It features play/pause, fast forward, rewind, and volume buttons that actually function, even though the fast forward one does next track. The handle even comes out so you can carry it around to school the new generation of kids who have never actually seen a cassette player up close before (even if it’s really an iPhone speaker, they’re still be in shock). It uses three AAA batteries to work and can also be powered via a micro USB cable (that’s not included FYI). It makes a great gift for any friend or family member who likes to reminisces about how great their mixed tapes were! Get one now at ThinkGeek for $39.99!
