i had a neat toy model motorcycle as a kid that sounded real! it had an 8ohm speaker in parallel with the little dc motor that spun the wheel. as you rev'ed the throttle [potentiometer] the motor would speed up. CEMF would pulse the speaker. no amp needed!

you need to do the same but in reverse. add a diode to the motor so the sound signal will only cause it rotate in one direction. experiment with different size capacitors across the motor to control stuttering. sometimes just guessing at values and trying different things work best in these situations.

HI all,

Has anybody had any success repurposing a Teddy Ruxpin or Furby to get the circuits for the mouth/motor and sound/voice synchronization?

I originally thought it was a simple proposition, but research has shown me it may not be as easy to achieve as it seemed. 

But maybe synchronization is overkill. I'm just looking to find a circuit that will run a motor along with the sound output. (And hopefully isolate any RF/EMI buzz/humming) 
Any direction anyone can point me in to start?
