The faux tails are available in three flavors: fox, raccoon, and inexplicably, lavender cat. Matching wallpaper is available for each tail to really tie the look together. The tails cost $10 each from Gama-Go.
The tail is made from artificial fur and sticks into the connector at the bottom of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod.
Let's think about who the potential customer base is for this product. Teenage girls are an obvious choice. I would also expect a brisk market for people who are obsessed with LOLcats, My Little Pony fans, and geeks living in apartments with no-pets policies.
At first, I thought this might be the most useless iPhone accessory ever created, but it's been pointed out to me that these tails may help keep the gunk out of your connector. That makes it cute and somewhat functional, therefore justifying its simultaneously absurd and compelling existence.
