Abstract

See full text

The invention provides a toy that talks when activated. The toy may be activated by simulating play with the toy or by changing the illumination of the toy's environment. Through electronic circuitry, the toy produces a sound output when its magnetic sensor detects a magnet nearby or when its photosensor detects a change in the level of illumination in the surrounding area. The toy may be used for peek-a-boo play involving children.
