Since the Douglas Fir tree is no longer sold and hard to find one with an AUX jack on Ebay, is there an Alternative to it out there??

Looking for something that talks and blinks that I can hack. Someone mentioned in another forum Teddy Ruxpin..has anyone tried him??

I need to get some talking/blinking props together soon...Halloween is a comin!!

I am working on this very candy dish right now. I'm outfitting it with a bluckie body and a "Hauntmaster" controller. Eyes will flash but not blink. Shoul be pretty cool.

Earlier in the year, I found a douglas fir at a garage sale for $3. The holy grail is mine. And for only three bucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yea slimy, I got the same thing. But I am planning on using it for my Magic Mirror project. It will shoot smoke out of its mouth when the candy comes down.

You could always go with servos in a bucky skull and a prop-1. It will require a little more programming than the dougie hack though.

Hmmm...maybe we could get some kind of group buy going...if we can talk them down on the quantity.

Why not just write them and tell them there is a much bigger market if they just build the talking skull instead of the tree? I know we all like to pull the pipe cleaners off the Douglas Fur, but they would save us a lot of work if they just built the skulls.

I just sent an E-mail off to Gemmy industries about the possibilty of aquiring more of those Douglas Firs....We'll see if they write back..if they do, I'll let y'all know what they say.
Hey Doc,

How about we find links to People looking for Douglas fir's & there uses and
send them to Gemmy industries as well.

I think I read somewhere the some of the manufacturing companies surf Prop building forums
to get an idea of what people are looking for for Halloween Props.

What he said!

Doc, tell them to make us some skulls (or zombies, or monsters), and they'd FLY off the shelves!
