many unofficial LEGO gadgets have been on the market for some time now, but next month will see LEGO themselves release a digital camera and MP3 player developed together with digital blue.

LEGO worked with the atlanta-based company who specialize in children’s tech-products for a range of gadgets that includes walkie talkies, boomboxes, alarm clocks as well.

‘our entrance into the youth electronics space will enable our fans to express themselves through photos, videos and music, while displaying their enthusiasm for one of the world’s all-time favourite toys’ said jill wilfert, lego group’s vice president of licensing.

the boomboxes can already be bought from digital blue online and from various leaked images it seems that a video camera and a mobile phone are also in the works though no release date has been announced.
