I listen to audio books to go to sleep, and I've been on the look out for a speaker, that didn't look like a speaker, for a really long time. The other day I found these white "ceramic" animal speakers at West Elm for $49.99. They have a fox, a squirrel, a bear, and an owl. I really liked the owl the best, but I already have an owl on my dresser so I went with the fox! Note these aren't really ceramic, they kind of feel like a heavy duty plastic.
