Possession by Playskool

JJ owns this nifty little toy. It's actually very cute. The farmer and all of his animals are all removable. And when you snap them into place, it makes the sound of the animal, or in the case of the farmer, it starts to sing, "Old MacDonald". It even knows which animals are in place, and will tailor the song to reflect the present crowd. It's a smart toy.

John and I realized exactly how smart the other night when, long after JJ had gone to bed, completely out of the blue, the farmer proclaimed, "I can't drive!"

After our initial shock, because this toy chose to speak of it's own volition, John and I looked at each other and said, in our best farmer imitation voices, "'Cause I've been drinkin'!"

I told you it was a smart toy.

That's hilarious!

Where'd you get it? My friend's little guy will be one in a week and this looks like the perfect toy for him! I searched Playskool's site but never found it.

Thanks!

It really is a cool little toy. I got it at a Discovery Toys party. It's an exclusive for them, but it was discontinued this year. It's on super-sale now: https://www.discoverytoyslink.com/ecommerce/control/product?PURCHASE_STATE=STANDARD&product_id=1069

I also found it (for a lot more) on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/PLAYSKOOL-FUN-TUNES-TRACTOR-FIGURES/dp/B00015MFNE/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=toys-and-games&qid=1214792412&sr=8-1

A lot of my kid's toys are all drunk. Apparently they will start to slur words and move slowly when the batteries begin to die.
