So a little explanation, I have a nephew who loves the Yvis song “What Does the Fox Say?”. He is toddler who will begin to dance the moment he hears that song. So I had the idea to turn a Speak and Say into a “What Does the Fox Say?” Speak and Say. The idea being that when the spinner landed on the fox, a clip from the song would play and when it landed on the other animals only their natural sounds would play.

This turned out to be a fairly complicated task. I had to completely redo the electronics inside and 3D print some parts, including a new spinning pointer. I also had to have new art for the animals, and for that I enlisted my amazing girlfriend/artist Brittany to illustrate them. I think it turned out great (plus it works perfectly), and my nephew loves it!
