This is my enrty in the Valetines Day Contest. It is my (hopefully) original idea to put a motor a on a tiger's tail, and make it spin.

This instructable is easy. You can gift this lil' tiger to your special someone, for a great CUTE gift.

Basic soldering skills are need.

Supplies needed:

Soldering iron (35 watt max)
Some solder
Stuffed Tiger
AA battery
Electrical Tape and Wires
A Button or switch (radioshack has em)
Needle and Thread
Small Knife

Step 1: Gather Your Parts

To get started, gather up some wires, a small electric motor, a AA battery and some thick copper wire.

Take a screwdriver, or pencil, and tightly wrap the wire around, forming a coil. But make sure you are still able to slide the coil to the motor well.

But don't place it on yet, that will make soldering difficult.

Next, take your switch or button and solder two lone wires, to each side of the switch. Mine has six, but most will only have two.

Then solder one wire to the motor, and another wire, coming from the switch to the motor.

I hope you're with me
Kewl. My brother has this weird tiger stuffed animal thingy that purrs when you squeeze it xD
So cute, good idea.<br/><br/>Perhaps you can add some lights too =)<br/>
Ha ha! I did read step 5 ! Thanks though!
A stuffed animal that's soft can easily be firmed by adding more stuffing which you can buy at almost any craft store.
Great Idea! I have some batting in y basement! I'll use it!
