iPhone 4 cases are a dime a dozen -- well, more like $25 each, to be specific -- but we do like to give props to any company that produces one in an imaginative and unique style. Two new styles by Case-Mate, part of the "Creature collection," fit our guidelines to a T. These covers boast your choice of scary monster (the Monsta) or cuddly penguin (the Waddler). We know, you're holding out for the adorable puppy case, right? Fortunately, there are more creature features ready to roll out in the coming months. But how can you turn down a case that has its own webbed feet keychain and raised flipper attached? We submit that you cannot. Full PR after the break.

Case-Mate introduces new line of 'creature cases' at Gadget Show Live 2011

Waddler and Monsta iPhone cases now available in the UK (get a sneak peek at Stand Q8)

Birmingham April 13th 2011 – Case-Mate®, known for its innovative accessories that protect, style and enhance mobile technology, brings innovative design to a new level with its new "Creatures" collection of iPhone 4 cases. Inspired by cartoon art and childhood fun, these creatures come to life in this new collection, which features vibrant colours, tactile elements and fresh, whimsical designs.

From mid-April, the Monsta and Waddler cases will be available from stand Q8 at the Gadget Show Live, online from www.bmcdigital.co.uk, www.cleverkit.com and at all good retailers. Further information on stockists can be found at www.case-mate.eu.com.

"Case-Mate aims to deliver not only design, function and style, but also fun. The case that you put on your phone should reflect your good mood, while letting you share that happiness with others around you," said Shannon Swallow, Case-Mate's VP of Global Marketing.

"This collection is about letting your playful side show. At Case-Mate, we believe in 'happiness by design.' Introducing characters like Monsta and Waddler is just one of the ways we hope to facilitate that behaviour in consumers."

The frighteningly fun Monsta and adorably sophisticated Waddler are the first cases in the "Creatures" collection. With a nod to the slightly strange, the Monsta iPhone 4 case is a character with no shortage of personality. The Monsta adds protection with a silicone base that covers and shields your iPhone. Elevated moulded dots add a textured grip, while vibrant colors and intricate details, including facial features, complete the look. This is one Monsta you won't want to run from. The Monsta retails at £19.99 and is available in green, pink, white and grey.

Although it's a flightless bird, the Waddler just took a giant leap into our hearts. From its raised flipper to the attached webbed feet keychain, the conceptual penguin design takes shape with colors and geometric lines. Combining a textured silicone with modular sections of smooth, plastic colors, the playful case covers and protects your iPhone 4. Waddler retails at £19.99 and is available in black, blue and brown.

In the coming months, new creatures will be added to the collection, so stay tuned for a cast of characters that will melt your heart, while protecting your phone.
