Hey guys I wanted to know if any one has this parrot. it came out in 2001 by manley toy quest part #14614. I can not find any data on it. I found it at a thrift store and it has never been opened and brand new except for the dust. Got it for 5 bucks. This is what it does. eyes change colors, head dress & mouth moves, flapping wings, and he talks, has AI, extensive vocabulary, voice learning capabilty, touch, light & sound sensors. the discription on the back reads: "Direct from the Institute of Robotic Technology comes this amazing interactive robot pet-- POLLY THE TEKNO PARROT! Polly talks with people he senses around him just like a real parrot. Polly's electronic cuircuits can detect motion, sound, light and even touch. He will snore off to sleep at night and wake up in the morning. If you pet him, he will "coo" and move his wings. Don't leave him in his cage too long or he may catch cold! You can even TEACH HIM NEW WORDS and other amazing tricks!" I'm not sure if this is a treasure that should not be opened or should I open it up and start the squaking from him. Here is a few pics I took. I hope someone can shine some insight for me before I open it up. Oh i also has aan electronics cracker I guess to feed him when he gets hungry. IThe original batteries are dead and I think If I don;t remove them It may leak in the battery holder and make it useless. What do you think I should DO!.
