This is just a little thing, but I'm proud of the concept so I thought I'd post it. I dragged my boyfriend to hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy, since he hadn't read the book he didn't realize how great it was. He loved it of course and especially the really cute 'Thanks for all the fish' song. So.. I bought him the book for his birthday and knit up this dolphin, but the cool part is that I ordered a recording device from the Internet and recorded part of the song and then sewed it up into the dolphin. When you squeeze him he sings "If I had just one more wish I would like a tasty fish". Then of course I knitted him a little fish attached by velcro- cause you can't deny a cute dolphin's wish Smiley.
 The pattern is from 'World of Knitted Toys' and the device was from www.talkingpresents.com. It's a little pricey with shipping and all, but for a boyfriend's birthday it's Ok to go all out Smiley I can't wait to see his face when he realizes it sings.

Oh my gosh! That's awesome. I love the idea and I was unaware that an ordinary person like me could by a little device to record a message. That's great. Better than Build-A-Bear. And HHG most definitely rocks.  Grin
