- They can't be washed as there's some electronics inside
- They stop talking/making noise when the battery runs out
So what can you do about that? Upon request, I was told to "operate" on such a toy. First, i unpicked some stitches to get the electronics out. Next, I used some scrap cloth to sew a little pocket to the opening I created:
|Toy with added "pocket"|
Now, stuff the little pocket of cloth back into the toy, and you can insert the electronics back in:
|Hidden pocket for electronics|
Ta-daa! With this little pocket, you can remove the electronics when you need to wash the toy or when a change of batteries are needed. Isn't that easier and cleaner too?
