For sale is a very rare, hard to find electronic store display for Mother Goose and Hector with the covered story book that will play all of Mother Goose/Hector tapes. Mother Goose is the head turning version. I have never seen this display with both characters, only Mother Goose.This display unit operates on a electric transformer, included. Plug the unit in the wall circuit...install either the included store display tape, or any of the tapes that were made for the talking Mother Goose and they will tell stories and animate beautifully. Remember, Mother Goose and Hector are working display pieces, but they only work on the display. The characters on the display are electrically hooked up to the circuit board behind the display base. There is not a tape deck in Mother Goose, only servo motors that connect to the circuit board. You cannot remove her and try to use her without the display....same goes for Hector.
The tape player is in the back...it is auto rewind...so you never have to turn the tape over!
Mother Goose will gently blink her eyes, move her head side to side and both her upper and lower beak animate in sync with her story tapes. Her eyes, beak, fur, feet, everything looks great. Hector however talks when it is his turn to talk but but I cannot get him to blink his little eyes, or make his head or beak move. I have the original display tape and have taped for you two tapes called "Birthday Surprise" and the "Three Little Kittens" which were the only two tapes where Hector does talk. I have many other tapes/books to purchase separately if interested. I have run across someone on ebay that does repair these talking toys. H
The unit itself weighs about 35 pounds and I will most likely have it packaged professionally by federal express. I am thinking it may cost approximately $125 or more to ship. If it is less, I will refund your money. Better safe then sorry.
I am slowly selling my collection as time permits. I do prefer a money order but if you use Paypal I will need to charge you the fee they charge me. If you are looking for anything in particular, drop me a line as I may have it.
