Hi all,
I bought a walking/singing dog for my grandson, it wriggles and walks and sings VERY loudly!
I wondered whether anyone had any ideas about disabling the sound as I think it would be used more frequently without the noise, wouldn't be so bad if it was just a little quieter.

Probably not anything I can do, but thought I would ask just in case.

Take the battery out.

Lol. I still want it to wiggle and walk, just not to sing 'I feel good...' very loudly! :)

performing a laryngectomy to remove the larynx under a general anesthetic should do the trick...;¬)

Buying a kid a noisy toy classes as a self inflicted injury in my book.

Well to be fair, was just a bit of a jokey one for Christmas and Grandson (11 months) really likes it but it is SO loud, pretty certain it will be 'lost' very soon!
My dog is terrified of it one minute, then sniffing it's bottom the next.
Other presents were nice tasteful wooden ones, as requested, just couldn't resist seeing the look of horror on my daughter and son in law's faces!
They will probably just bring it with them when they visit me to get their own back, lol.

oops, didn't intend that to sound so grumpy.

I think this works a bit. Find the part where the noise comes out, it probably has an official name, but for the purpose of this I will just call it the noisy bit, and then put some tape over it. Something like sellotape or packing tape. Try a few different scenarios, covering the noisy bit with a few layers if necessary, and it will be job done. Well, sort of job done anyway. Not silent by any means, but a lot more acceptable level of woofyness, or however it sings.

Thanks guys, will suggest the covering of speaker bit.

Where's Argo? I'm sure he'll have a solution!

"Where's Argo?"

That's a good question Toxo.
He seems to have disappeared since he went on his hols to 'Orsham,

Perhaps he was abducted be them Southerners, or his sisters jobs are taking longer than expected,

or even, praps he met some delectable 'bird' down south, and is living in 'Heavenly Bliss' on some remote island off the Lancashire coast! ;-}

I have it on good authority ...(Woosey) that Argo has been sighted and visited in his home environs of Morecombe recently.
So all is not lost, he's just keeping thee all wondering !!

Jason is alive and kicking. I have told him folk have been asking after him and he did say he would come on here but that was well over a week ago.
He'd been invited out for Christmas dinner so declined my offer lol.
