IPODs have been around for a few years now and there are a lot of accessories that go with them. An ipod dock increases the utility of your IPOD and your enjoyment. Everywhere you go you see people with IPODs. They are a lot of docks you can choose from. I am thinking that one would be good for my eldest daughter and of course I am, she would like a dock to go with it. My eldest loves music and an IPOD would be good for her. It would be good for me too, because you know I will be using it when she is not. The only worry we have is the youngest who will want to handle it, she is a very curious girl.
