What a girl (or boy) wants?

You may soon be asked for these by the kids in your life: Tiger Electronics, maker of the Furby, is unleashing its HitClips products at the American International Toy Fair that began yesterday in New York.

The pitch: Postage-stamp-size, digital-music chips - carrying tunes by the likes of Christina Aguilera. They can be played in a couple of ways: on an itty-bitty boom box (about $10), or an $8 "microplayer" (will that single earplug fly with stereo lovers?)

Both will hit stores this summer. Coming in the fall: a $25 "downloader" (Yahoo! is in on this) that jacks into a PC so users can download music from the Internet.
