Battery-Operated Talking Toy Repair Kit

Includes Suzy Smart and hundreds of other talking dolls, toys, robots and novelties (see partial list below). If it has a battery and record, this is the kit.

A complete repair manual--twenty-eight pages of professionally written, professionally typeset text covering complete repair procedures, illustrated with eight photos and patent illustrations.

Parts: Two sizes of silicone tubing for friction drive talkers (to replace the original latex that self-destructed), two belts in the most common sizes for belt-drive talkers--enough parts for six talkers

The manual takes you step by step through the repair process. No previous repair experience is necessary--it tells you which tools to use, and how to use them. It tells you how to avoid mistakes, and how to fix any errors you do make. Just a few of the topics covered are:

  • How to do a complete overhaul--OR just get your talker talking again
  • How to solder electrical parts, without melting the plastic parts they're riveted to
  • Troubleshooting section
  • How to bring "dead" motors back to life--or rewind them if necessary
  • Where to get more parts

Information you won't find anywhere else includes:

  • The best tools for talker repair--and how to use them
  • Which chemicals to use--and which to avoid
  • How to repair scratched records
  • Why using ordinary grease to lubricate talkers can be disastrous
