@chrisbroz - Thanks for the meminder of the Mattel's "See 'n Say". I was a teenager when they were introduced in 1965. If you "futzed" with it just right you could mess up the mechanism and have it so a horse would make the pig sound, etc...
I admit to being guilty of messing up a few younger cousin's new Christmas toy.

I'll submit this iconic gem to the Toys and Game section.

Like the old 'chain cough'???  I'm almost 66 and still howl at some of the sh*t we used'ta do...guy (Junior Year) had a gadget from a young kid's game (prolly ages 4 & up) it looked like a barn and had one of those pull strings with a riing - like 'Chatty Cathy' - it made animal noises...kid kept it inside his suit jacket (yeah, I'm THAT old) would drive the sociology teacher, Mr Peyton, nuts - it made, among other noises, a horse sound...there WAS a horse in a field next to the school and at first the teacher thought it was coming from that field, but the kid, Marc, couldn't keep a straight face...and the jig, as they say, was up!!!

No, but I was (and still am) able to whistle with my mouth seemingly closed. I taught a couple of friends in my high school English class to do this -- we called it "whistling through our ears" -- and we had loads of fun during exams. I'd start whistling a tune (remember "I Was Kaiser Bill's Batman"??), and the teacher (who was "auditorially challenged" as they might say today) would get up and walk toward the sound, at which point one of my cohorts would take up the tune and the teacher would veer off in that direction, finally getting exasperated and yelling, "Who's whistling?!?"

Remember how you loved the kid who could perfectly reproduce the "beep" because he would confuse the teacher and get her to advance the strip while the sound was still on the previous frames?
