MP3 Player Pretends to be a Walkman

The Walkman's mourning period is still going strong despite being officially six feet under; I mean, we've already featured stickers that make your fancy iPhone look like a portable tape deck, and that's just the tip of the iceberg. The best retro tribute so far is this Cassette MP3 Player by Urban Outfitters.

This bulky plastic box perfectly captures the look and feel of our long lost musical companion. It's got the standard pause, play, rewind and fast-forward buttons. A plastic clip on keeps the Faux-man strapped awkwardly to your belt, just like the good old days.

Now all you need is a mullet hairdo and a few Bon Jovi, Dokken and Motley Crue albums loaded onto the included SD card, and it's like you've sent yourself back in time.
