'MPlayer' finally rolls onto U.S. shores

After touring Asia extensively, Mickey's MP3 player finally arrives in the U.S.

Disney appears to have a penchant for making music gadgets out of its characters' heads, and certainly its most famous franchise won't be left out of the party.

Iriver's Mickey-themed "MPlayer," which Craver Jasmine France spotted back in January, has made good on its promise to finally arrive on the U.S. market. We can't help but feel a bit slighted, however, after having seen the MP3 player roll its merry way across countries in Asia while taking on all forms, occasionally getting blinged and even picking up a disease or two along the way.

As originally billed, it comes with 1GB of built-in storage, a USB port, and 9 hours of playtime. But do take note of one feature not mentioned earlier: "This product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer, or birth defects or other reproductive harm." So if you live in the Golden State, tweak the ears at your own risk.
