Inside The WowWee Alive Cubs: Part 2Posted by Grandlarseny37 on Friday, 3 October 2008
And here it is... Part two! I was having file size issues so I had to split the article into two parts. Hope you enjoy the rest of the WowWee Alive Lion Cub dissection!
This is a shot of the back of the cub's skull. You can see the head's touch sensor at the top.
This is the bottom of the skull. The black piece is the bottom of the cub's jaw.
Inside each ear is a small white sack that contains a single button (quick on/off/volume, and try me).
This is a video of the cub in action after being totally skinned!
After unscrewing the back of the skull and removing the head's touch sensor, you can access the single motor that controls the cub's movements.
Here you can see the motor in action!
The brains can be found on the back of the battery compartment. Also inside the battery compartment is the tilt sensor, but I was unable to get a picture of it - sorry!
I was unable to get a close up picture of the circuit board that was neither overexposed nor blurry, so apologies about that one (dumb camera)!
So there you have it. The complete dissection of the WowWee Alive Lion Cub. As I said at the beginning of part 1, don't try to open one of these guys up unless you are willing to either completely destroy the fur or spend hours upon hours reattaching and sewing it back up.
