I decided to retract my statements about bMc and this Instructable. For the record bMc is a great guy and these guys with the sacks of concrete just made the most lovely offer of some shoes custom-made just for me. An offer I simply CANNOT refuse...

How wrong you are. This is one of those giant furby's that can talk and dance and shit. My little sister had this and I circuit bent it also, it looked very close to that. I still admire that you tried to explain why hes a fraud unlike other poeple who jsut say: He/She is a fraud!

bentmonkeycage (author)2007-04-20

ha ha , a baseball bat would be kool to bash it with. We actually fry the little shits when we circuitboard them. A lot of you guys want to know where to cut and add pots and stuff. It is very tiny inside, so you should whack a keyboard, or another toy first, to get the feel of circuitboarding. copy and paste this link for contacting me or more info on this sport.

Spl1nt3rC3ll (author)2007-04-20

when i was little i hated those furbys. they were fun at first, but then at night they would keep me up saying "OOOoooo its Daaark. im scared hug me." all night. i bashed it in the head with a b-ball bat. anywho, awsome project.

supermichael2 (author)2007-02-24

cvillewill (author)2006-06-13

Besides the need of details and such this is an awesome project! I have always been looking for ways to make fun of these annoying creatures ever since their popularity a few years back. Great Job

bean_machine (author)2006-05-30

emperor799 (author)2006-05-22

Images of the process and, if possible, more detail to the step-by-step would be helpful. Thanks!

DIGITAL TOY Audio modifications can be very fun and rewarding. Any Audio device can be modified to higher levels and tastes. These devices can be inexpensive childrens' toys to full blown Musical Instruments, such as synthesizers. bMc, bent monkey cage, can instruct and teach through a CD Book available on eBay.
