Just because it’s a talking toy doesn’t mean it’s for kids. You can find a variety of talking toy example scripts; from superhero talking toys and animation toy scripts for entertainment purposes to educational aids toys that stimulate the mind.

And you don’t have to pull a string to get the toy to talk – these days, talking toys can be programmed to respond to the user in real-time.

Talking Toys vs Smart Talking Toys

Talking toys help kids expand their vocabulary as well as develop their speech.

Educational aid talking toy scripts, for instance, are designed to recite the alphabet or teach kids the different shapes and types of animals. These toys are also perfect for learners with a delayed speech problem.

Talking toys help children with their social skills.

Being interactive, these toys help growing kids practice how to answer questions in a way their peers can understand.

Smart toys go the extra mile to interact with the user, and they are available for people of all ages. These talking toys spark the imagination, encourage more learning, and help with motor skill development.

What Voice Should You Use for Your Talking Toy Script?

As a toymaker, when looking for the voice of your talking toy, you should have already envisioned how you want it to sound like.

Do you want it to sound like an edgy teenager? A 3-month-old toddler? Or would you prefer a heavy and dark superhero voice?

It all depends on your audience, but you can never run out of skilled voice actors to do the job for you.

The voice of the talking toy should also sound realistic and relatable to your target audience. Using a famous voice might be a plus, but do your research first.

A Little History Lesson

The first talking toy to ever be invented is said to have scared the wits out of people.

The doll was invented by Thomas Edison in 1890, and it has glassy eyes and a mouth that would not move even though the toy sang nursery rhymes. When the doll sang, it sounded like a female was being tortured into reading the script.

They had an excuse.

Back then, voice-over artists had to shout the words into the recording machines, so the sound quality was poor.

But this does not take away from the main point; choose who voices your talking toy carefully. Can you imagine how scared little girls will be if their Barbie dolls turn out to have a raspy voice?!

Here are some helpful resources for those looking for actors to voice their talking toy scripts:

Here are talking toy example scripts:

Talking Toy Script Sample #1

Client: Smart World Toy

Voice age: Child

Gender: Female

Job description:

Smart World Toy is planning to release their first smart toy for toddlers that is supposed to help kids with their pronunciation and articulation.

The talking toy will give learners a spelling quiz, and if the answer is correct, it gives a happy response. In case of a wrong answer, the toy gives constructive feedback and tells the child to try again.

Art Direction:

The voice of the talking toy should be like that of an 8-year-old. It should sound fun, bubbly and vibrant. Since the target audience is that of 4 – 8-year olds, the vocabulary of the toy is limited. The toy should also advice when to take breaks and give the learner a list of stretching exercises to do.
