The tape doesn't play. It starts and stops!
I have a Teddy Ruxpin from 1983. It has worked all these years but now, the tape won't turn. It starts, then stops completely. Is there a repair shop, to fix it? It's in excellent condition.
first of all he is made in 1985 by worlds of wonder. which is the version that I'm guessing you have. the problem is either a warped drive belt, a loose battery or connection problem, or most commonly, a dented pinch roller. one of them that I have is a first gen with a metal player. and that one used to have a dented pinch roller. which was causing that start and stop thing. exept mine was doing it faster, causing a blipping sound. so all you have to do is to buy another replacement pinch roller and go from there. good luck!
