Instructables
Its a dock in a toy( a munny, a monkey looking plastic toy made to be costomized, there $20 at www.kidrobot.com) this "how to" will save you about 20 dollers from the apple ipod dock and is on a whole nother level of cool.

Step 1: Materials

Time: 1 Hour

Stuff You Need
1 munny
2 iPod cord
3 exacto
4 duck tape
5 lighter
6 thin and durable cardboard or something like that
7 strong glue

Step 2: Cutting Holes

First you need to cut the holes for the cord to go through, to do this take the lighter and hold the flam about a inch or a little closer from the area for about 20 sec, if it starts to get black or if smoke comes off STOP and hold the lighter farther away. The holes have to be big so the usb plug can fit through.

On top of the neck of the munny's body

On the bottom of the munny's head

On the munnys butt, not on the with the tale because the body will be turned around( i didnt mean to but it on the side with the tail, the front).

The hole where the iPod goes in is very important, start small and work out, mark with a pencil where you are going to cut and make sure it is where you want it. When you are done make sure the iPod slips in.
hahahaha he has a cord comin out of his butt
Look closer at the picture. It's a USD cord (Universal Serial ****)! XD

u said the munny was 20 dollars and you said ipod docks were 20 dollars. why not just get the dock? anyway i love the idea but could be better with some kind of cheap toy such as a McDonalds furbie which i think i have a ton and then it would have cute ears too ;-)

Maxell P-3 Dock cost me 12.99. and it has usb/firewire/line/svideo out... as well as AC power, and changable sinks and a backrest. that was at my local Bargain Store.

sweet. a little unrelated, but were you the person who had the nes controler for the ipod in hackaday
Sigh, can people stop making these redicioulous ipod docks? For the amount of time a ipod is plugged in, it's rather unnessasary if you ask me. And no that isn't the guy that made the nes controller mod.
Hey... at least they're more interesting then knex guns! Looks good, pigboi!
Good point
Agreed :P

Wait, those things are hollow?!?! I thought they were solid. I mean you can go out and get a piggy bank of same quality for a buck. Nice Instructables though.

That's cool! Munnys are teh bomb. Too bad you can't control the iPod, but I guess that people don't usually use an iPod when they can just listen to audio from the computer it's plugged into, anyways.
