Design firm Wrappz has created a range of covers for MP3 players, games consoles and laptops. They are available on the BBC Children in Need and Wrappz websites. For every iPod, PSP and Nintendo DS cover purchased for £4.99, £3 will go straight to the charity, and £6 will be donated from the sale of every £12.99 laptop, Nintendo Wii and Sony PlayStation 3 cover.
