Christmas is Coming....

Kat from 3BedroomBungalow found this on Etsy, and was kind enough to share, even though it meant someone might beat her to it, and the girls would end up with something all yucky

Syd was convinced to go for the surgery my his good friend Maurice, he seems quite happy with the end result. it is of course a little painful but small price to pay for becoming a magical musical instrument.

his body was opened up and augmented with a pseudo Theremin. (the odd instrument which makes eldritch noises when you wave at it) pseudo because in this case the Theremin is control by light rather than radio waves but the sound and method of playing is much the same. you wave your hand in front of his eye (after first flipping the switch on his front leg) and spooky sounds emerge. with a little practice you can play a tune simply by moving your hand up and down.

the evolution from my dead little pony to golden steampunk/zombie/musical instrument was not an easy process for Syd and some of his scars are still fresh. the jack in his flank looks particularly raw but as it enables you to plug in headphones, speakers or an amp i think he would agree with me that it was worth it.

he does not do well in bright sunlight, the early evening is his favorite time, his squeal will become too high to be audible if the light is too bright. but in the twighlight, under artificial light or wearing shades he will sing for you endlessly.

well i say endlessly but you might at some point need to change his batteries and fortunately a flap of loose skin on his belly allows you to do this without too much blood loss.

invite Syd into your house and be the envy of all, his sweet song, sweet nature and retched blood stained appearance will melt your heart. probably.

Think it might scare away my rats?

That is awesome. I want it for my office.

Put me down for two! If I had a coffee table this would be the PERFECT item to place upon it!

Ah, the sweet music of undead ponies...

I'm glad my kids are too big for toys. Although my 25 year old was a big fan of My Little Pony. She just might like this one!

This is the greatest day of my life. I'm going to buy two.
