Cry Baby Ideas
The crying face is on the back side of it’s head, so you just turn the head around very quickly and it looks SO REAL!
The normal cute face has a moving mouth and your fingers make the mouth move. Those fingers stay in that mouth the whole time. On the back of the head is another crying face sculptured in the open mouth screaming position. You simply turn the head around with a flick of the wrist and start your crying! It looks totally real.
You can cover the move and give it more realisim and humor by using a baby bottle or pacifier. Put it in it’s happy! Take it out – it cries! Needs to be burped. Oops what’s that I just heard? (toot)…. CRY!!!!
CUSTOMER NOTE – If anyone is thinking of purchasing the Axtell Cry Baby, do not hesitate. I’ve used mine the last few months to wonderful responses, but today was the absolute best. I did a show for about 200 people – 75 children and their parents. The baby was a hit and the laughter was just nonstop. After the show I went to a local restaurant for lunch before my next performance and the couple next to me mentioned they were at the show and enjoyed it very much. They said they felt like kids again. The husband said he never laughed so hard as when I brought out the baby and he wanted to know how the baby changed it’s expression so quickly. Then he said, “That baby had three different expressions and they changed at lightning speed!” For those of who own the Axtell baby you know there are only two expressions, not three. I was chuckling inside as he kept mentioning the three different expressions. He was fascinated by this. Finally I said it was just “magic”. Steve, you have created another wonderful character. Thanks so much!”
