Top Marks For TabZoo In Recent Product Review

We were really pleased to discover a great review on the TestFreaks tech review site this week for our TabZoo Tablet Sleeves. 

We don't want to gloat, but this final statement from the review just about sums things up:

'If you have a kid and a tablet, you need this case'

We couldnt have hoped for a better endorsement for the range.  You can see the full review by visiting Testfreaks

Universal Appeal

We all know that tablets are big business. We have seen numerous reports citing the massive increase in their popularity and the predictions for sales in the near and not so near future.

We are also very aware of the proliferation of devices available – new ones are appearing all the time. Just this week we have seen the unveiling of the new iPads and information on the first Nokia Lumia tablet. The new Kindle Fire HDX is available on pre-order (just in time for Christmas) – even Tesco has joined the race with its new Hudl.

What does this mean for retailers of tablet accessories? With limited shelf space available, what do you stock? If you are worried about finding more accessory shelf space for yet another new device, don't be.  Universal Fit Covers offer a best case scenario! 

Available in 2 sizes ( for 7/8 and 10/11 inch tablets) our folio covers offer a universal grip system which will stretch to fit most devices on the market.  What's more, we have them available in a range of brands from Snuggs timeless neutrals to delightfully embellished Accessorize fashions and fresh, modern Bench designs

Monsoon fashion that blends east and west

Monsoon and Lazerbuilt Collaborate on Exclusive Accessories Range

Celebrating its 40th Anniversary this year, Monsoon has joined with Lazerbuilt to launch a brand new collection of digital accessories.

Known for its feminine and exclusive eclectic designs, Monsoon's Digital Accessories Collection blends together the exotic allure of traditional eastern texture and print with western bohemian style and influence.

Product and Marketing Director for Lazerbuilt, Andrew Byatt said of the collaboration, This is an exciting time for Lazerbuilt. Monsoon is a brand with tremendous customer loyalty, a distinct eclectic style and a wide breadth of influences.

To be able to collaborate with the Monsoon brand teams has been extremely valuable and led to some great designs that really offer something unique to the market.

The range includes luxurious accessories for smartphones and tablets, including an innovative new take on the ever popular diary style cover, and will put particular focus on the new range of iPhone® and iPad® products expected later this year.

TabZoo Tiger Tablet Sleeve

Tablet Accessories To Get Your Teeth Into!

The Lazerbuilt team has been very excited about the arrival of TabZoo.  This is our latest collection of tablet accessories - a host of animal inspired sleeves with bite. 

The TabZoo range was born of the surge in tablet popularity.  These days, it seems like most people use or own a tablet of some description and more often than not, these gadgets find their way into the hands of the children of the house.  In fact, with more and more child specific tablets being introduced to the market and the rise in using tablets for educational purposes, it seemed only right to introduce a tablet sleeve designed for kids themselves.

Enter TabZoo.  This range comprises a collection of animal character sleeves for safely stashing tablets.  They feature padded interiors for protection and a quirky viewing stand function.  Available in 2 sizes: one for 7/8" tablets and one for 10/11" tablets, the sleeves are compatible with many different devices.  Click here for more on TabZoo.

Bringing together the function you would expect of a good quality headphone with the stunning quirky style Accessorize is famous for and you have a winning combination.

These stereo headphones - as well as looking as pretty as a picture - offer great sound and include in-line mic for for answering calls and track control. Additionally, the convenient folding function and lightweight design mean they are perfect for girls on the go.

A Book About People Making It Happen

The newly released and highly anticipated Bench Autumn/Winter 2012 Look Book: Self Made contains a feature on our all new Bench Headphone collection. Our headphones were the only accessory to make it into the look book and we anticipate a lot of interest in these products which will be released in the near future.

The double page spread shows off the new products beautifully and the headphones themselves perfectly reflect the style direction chosen by Bench for their new collection: a look that is all clean lines. 'A blend of vibrant brights and earthy neutrals with the subtle, signature Bench detailing. Easy to wear, understated with an urban edge and distinctly Bench'.

The new headphones of course provide a sound quality that matches the excellent design 'Rich bass notes without compromise to the mid or high range and excellent clarity for a purer sound experience'.
