Abstract: An animated interactive sound generating toy and speaker is provided and includes a plurality of stored musical beats, rhythms, and melodies, as well as other sound effects that can be interactively played back by activation of various switches that are located on the body of the creature-like toy. In addition, the toy's speaker can be utilized as a standard speaker for connecting to an external audio source so that a radio, CD player, or MP3 player, etc. can be played through the toy's speaker. The toy has a multi-color LED that is pre-programmed to flash synchronously with the stored sound data as well as moving eyes that can move synchronously with the stored sound data.
