Mother Goose and Hector
Once upon a time...
The Talking Mother Goose was released in 1986 by Worlds of Wonder. Mother goose like Teddy Ruxpin and the other Worlds of Wonder talking toys uses animation cassettes so she can move her eyes, beak, and neck (if you have a 1st generation goose) to the story. There are 3 generations of Mother Goose. 1st generations which has a turning neck. 2nd generations which don't have a turning neck and have a clip on battery cover. Lastly 3rd generation Mother Goose's have no turning neck and have a hinged battery cover. Mother Goose takes 4 C batteries and came with the book and tape The Ugly Duckling. Mother Goose's companion Hector takes 4 AA batteries and came with the book and tape 3 Little Kittens. Hector had his own sub series of books and tapes called Hector Nursery Rhymes. To connect Hector to Mother Goose you can use a standard audio cable. No special cord needed for this bird duo! after WOW made the smaller version of Teddy Ruxpin, they were planing on making a smaller Mother Goose model but because of money struggles it never came out from Worlds of Wonder. But Playskool, the second manufacter of the Teddy Ruxpin toy did make a smaller Mother Goose. The Playskool talking Mother Goose is extremely rare though, barely popping up on auction sites like eBay.
