After having our new Batman Mimobot flash drive heavily coveted by a young friend, we knew it was time to find them a drive of their own. So, we started looking for some more flash drives that would appeal to a younger crowd. Our criteria was drives that would be so cute (like our Mimobot) that the primary school aged child would not want to lose it. Of course while we were doing this shopping we could not help but round up more adorable flash drives we would not mind acquiring for ourselves (we really like the koala, hint hint).
- Mimobot Batman: To celebrate the 75th anniversary of DC Comics this adorable drive of the 1939 era Batman in 4GB was commissioned. These are limited edition, so grab them while you can.
- Owl: This cute little owl is a 4GB USB drive housed in a removable water-resistant silicone jacket.
- Fruitshop Phone: Made to look rather similar to one of our favorites phones, this 4GB drive definitely fits the cute bill.
- Wooden Animal: These wooden flash drives by Marubeni come in a variety of animal shapes, 10 to be exact.
- Mini Bento Box: Almost everything is adorable in miniature, including Sushi! Perfect for a Bento lover of any age (as long as they are old enough not to try and eat the drive).
- Koala: This 16GB drive is made from eco-friendly silicone, so it not only looks cute, but it offers great protection for your data from spills and drops. Did we mention it looks like a koala?
- Mini Cooper: Declare your love of the iconic car with this 4GB drive. Not only does the drive look cute, but the wheels rotate and the headlights illuminate!
- Pink Dolphin: Do we really need to say more than pink dolphin? Can you get any cuter than a pink dolphin? We think not (maybe the koala out-cutes it). This 4GB drive from the Bone Collection is encased in a removable water-resistant silicone jacket.
- Tiny Harmonica: Yes, this 2GB drive is playable. Although it's a bit pricey at $40 for a 2GB flash drive, we do like the novelty of our drive doubling as a mini harmonica.
Turtle: We've always had a soft spot for our turtle friends even when they were not of the mutant ninja variety. Thanks to its cute turtle shape, this 4GB drive earns a spot on our list.
