Remember Ruxpin?

Question: Can you buy a Teddy Ruxpin talking stuffed animal cheaply on Ebay?
Answer: Hell Yeah!
Question: Can you then put your own cassettes in him to make him say ridiculous things?
Answer: Um. Sorta.
Unfortunately this idea will probably never be realized. Apparently, Teddy uses unique coded tapes. It sounds like someone could make the tapes with a four-track cassette recorder, some sharp objects, and a little ingenuity, but alas, it would be more complicated than I have time for. If anyone is up for the challenge, be sure to care for your bear.
