The A-Team Egg - An easter egg playing The A-Team title melody if you shake it!

Featured

The A-Team Egg ist an Easteregg that plays the title melody of the A-Team each time you shake it. I made it as an easter present for my brother who is a big fan of The A-Team. But if you dont like the A-Team, you can change the melody and decoration to make it a fan-egg of your sisters favorite rock band. It can easily be reprogrammed and customized.

Get over to Step 1 to start making it! Dont forget to comment and rate this project.

Nice! This will let me use up some AAA battery holders (I accidentally ordered AAA's on fleabay. This might also allow for using a smaller egg shell..)

EGGcellent! :D You should make a Mr. T stencil so you can use spray paint and paint Mr. T on all the eggs! :D
