Yup, that's what I'm thinking of, at least the shape and look. I think I remember that too. It was a translucent white plastic, somewhat flexible? The ones I remember more were very clear, and harder plastic, and the store had a key of sorts to open them.

Oh yeah, I remember those as well. Yeah, these were a flexible whiteish plastic like you described. The other type was a more brittle harder plastic and transparent.

Doesn't it seem odd how difficult it is to find a single image of them on the internet??? It's some kind of conspiracy I'm sure.

I hadn't realized that we lost the creator of Teddy Ruxpin earlier this year.

I think he's wrong. I think the tape player technology was part of Teddy Ruxpin's appeal.
Of course, I was too old for the toy at the time so I could be the one who is wrong. But I just don't see today's kids getting a kick out of a stuffed animal telling stories.

If it did return, it would likely have to replace the cassette technology with some kind of bluetooth smartphone app.

I had no idea that last year, a comic book was started based on "Big Trouble in Little China". Awesome.
