  1. I would like to construct a one-of-a-kind talking doll and I'm trying
    to find a fairly inexpensive playback device that I can load multiple
    recorded speech samples onto (and have it play them back randomly).
    Any suggestions?

    Define: "fairly inexpensive".
    How much audio storage. Does it have to be solid-state?
    Also, I presume you don't want a string in the back you have to
    pull. :)

  4. I don't know. I'd like to not spend more than $40 max, preferably
    closer to $20. Enough storage for no more than a dozen 3-second
    phrases should be enough. Not sure how I would get that without going
    solid-state. Actually, the pull string might add to the kitsch factor
    of the doll, so maybe I would like a pull string?

  8. If you want kitsch factor why not have the pull
    string dangling between the doll's legs like a tampon string?
     
  9. You could even have a red string

    And a recorded sound of squish-pop-splat-flush when pulled, but this
    isn't kitsch, it's techno-vulgar.
