10 Things We’re Loving Now: Time-Telling Vinyl, Piggy Speakers, Cute Socks + more
And the cutest Baymax ever.
(SPOT.ph) The week’s random loot? Nothing much-just the paradox of salad plates with animal heads printed on them (trust us, they’re way cute!). Plus, pig-shaped speakers, a little Baymax for your desk, and the most adorable knits. Plus, level up your pasalubong with kitschy Manila notebooks!
Momax Piggy Bluetooth Speaker (P1,550)
We have to admit that the cuteness is what won us over. But it’s practical, too. You can just pop one in your bag and let it out when you and your friends need a bit of background noise. It comes in four different colors and operates with a range of 10 meters, plus it can support two phones simulataneously (take turns picking a track!). The battery life extends to up to five hours of straight play time. That’s a road trip to Tagaytay!
