Advice on making the “tickle me bender” from the show futurama

Hi there people

There’s this toy that came out on the show futurama that apparently will never be made commercially. I really would like to make one and wanted to ask you guys for advice on how to make that happen.

Watch this clip if you don’t know what I’m talking about.

My idea was to use an arduino and program it to have it cycle through voice clips. Also, with each voice clip, include arm/leg movements and facial expressions.

I thought it’s best to replace the eyes with some sort of small led ribbon just to capture expressions perfectly.

Any advice is appreciated.

I’m headed in a good direction with this?

If you know the show, what voice clips should I add?

Any feedback helps.
