Make Your Toys Talk

MAKE SOME NOISE!
YOUR KIDS WILL THANK YOU.

With this project, toys will talk! Wizard wands will fizz and zing! (Or make pig noises—you decide.) Grandma’s rocking chair will roar like a rocket chair! Our Make Your Toys Talk kit is going to be really popular with the mischievous set!

This very cool projects lets kids record their own voices and sounds, create simple switches with common items around the house, and make their favorite toys come to life.

Kids will learn how to make a simple circuit and will be introduced to the cause-and-effect fun of pairing simple actions with their favorite sound effects.

We no longer sell this project as a kit, but you can still make the project by following our written and video instructions.

You can most likely find all of the conductive material at home -- aluminum foil, safety pins, etc. but you'll need to replace our recordable module and inventor cable with a Makey Go or a Re-recordable module in order to record sounds and play them back.
