A while ago, I crocheted a túngara, a frog I hear a lot during the wet season in Panamá. I wanted to have my model make the distinctive túngara call, which sounds like a video game sound effect, but I didn’t know how. For Christmas, Andrew gave me a bunch of cool electronics that I can record on and embed in soft toys. He even loaded one with a recording of a túngara for me!
We opened the frog up and inserted the device.
Here’s a picture of a real túngara with its characteristic inflated dewlap.
I’m looking forward to making more noisy toys like this! Someone suggested a toucan, which should be fun.
