Polaroid P3 retro music player

Polaroid P3 retro music player

£139.00

The Polaroid P3 Player has some real presence. Coming in around the dimensions of a pineapple (including the ‘crown’, which turns out to be the proper name of that top bit), it’s the choice to make for when more volume is needed. Plus, it’s still a portable speaker, thanks to its polished metal handle. And while none of the Polaroid Players are designed to blend in, the Polaroid P3 speaker is a true stand-out, bringing back big boombox energy with its retro-futuristic vibes.
