If there was a way to change the message on the original one it would be fun to buy 6 or 7 from Staples, change the message to something like "Wow was that hard", then return them. Smile

I remember reading about someone doing that to some kids toy that talked some time ago. I think it was an Elmo doll... Cool

I spent some time a few months back looking at the easy button. Could never figure out how to change the existing chip on board IC except for changing the speed of playback.

I decided to create a new circuit using a standard voice recording IC. Even made a PCB in combination with another project.
