Crayola's colorless MP3 player

Are we missing something here?

It's official: Nothing is sacred. Even though everyone and his dog seem to be making an MP3 player these days, we didn't think we'd see one from Crayola.

Its specs didn't exactly bowl over Engadget--"There's nothing all that remarkable about the MP3/WMA player from what we can tell: It's got a tiny screen, an SD card slot and is powered by a single AAA battery."

We'll take it a step further: Other than a blue LCD and some green accents, it barely has any color. Maybe we're missing something here, but in a market that's already crowded to the gills, wouldn't it have made sense for Crayola to capitalize on, you know, its trademarked colors? A crazy notion, we know.
