I tried the expensive yet eccentric Bearbrick Bluetooth speaker, and I didn’t hate it

There are two things you need to know before we get into the nuts and bolts of one of the weirdest wireless speakers we’ve ever come across (the Bearbrick is so unique and outrageously priced, it will likely never feature among the best Bluetooth speakers we’ve tested but that’s not to say it’s not one of the most interesting we’ve come across).  

The first is that Medicom Toy (purveyors of collectible action figures, vinyl dolls and what-have-you) has achieved something very close to ubiquity with its Bearbrick model. There isn’t a design museum worthy of the name that doesn’t have one or two examples knocking about, and there are literally thousands of variations of its ‘400%’ model available on the company’s website. Fancy a Bearbrick as Tweety-Pie? Or as Andy Warhol? Or one or other of Daft Punk? Go right ahead.
