Griffin KaZoo for iPhone 5 review

This elephantine iPhone 5 case from Griffin Technology (there's also a monkey version) is very comfortable to hold in one's hand - the phone feels safe and protected, and its controls are easy to access and use. It's fashioned from soft silicone with a pleasing matt finish.

The visuals are a treat. That nice, vibrant colour makes it stand out so much that it's easy to find at the bottom of a bag, and we love the attention to detail: the Home button is covered by a 'paw print' and the volume controls are in the elephant's ears.

Of those we've asked, girls seem to love this case and want it, while guys think it's either cute or silly (but may well end up buying it for their girlfriends).

It doesn't exactly complement the iPhone's sleek and gorgeous design, however; in fact the case hides the iPhone's looks completely. Possibly not one for people who like to show off their choice of smartphone.

OUR VERDICT

Somehow both whimsical and practical, this animal-themed iPhone 5 case brightens up my day. The hard-hearted or cuteness-averse need not apply, though.
