What’s this toy?!

He was a robot and you traded out tapes and it told different info accordingly? If memory serves, it looked like Rosy from the Jetsons. The time would be in the early to mid 90’s.

I was gonna say Teddy Ruxpin too, but he’s a bear.

No, not Teddy Ruxpin… but a similar creature. This thing was like a robot. Or atleast it was designed to look like a robot.

Was it this guy? Or Alphie, a toy for which I cannot find a link?

@aprilsimnel It looks kinda like an evolution off of the toy in the link. And from what I can find of the ‘alphie’ link, nothing matches what I’m seeking.

@aprilsimnel

After looking at the wikipedia page of the fella you linked, you’re right.

It’s just that this is the version I’m familiar with and that link you gave didn’t look like this fella.
