So, after recently purchasing my first Teddy Ruxpin, I've decided I want to get his mate Grubby as well. Problem is, so many of the listings I find look something like "1985 Worlds of Wonder Grubby Doll, NO CORD". Strangely, most of the Grubbies I see are in great condition.
What's the answer here, people? It's like there's more Grubbies out there than the cords that are required to make him work.
Someone needs to send a cord off to get cloned or something. I wonder how much that would cost and what the interest would be... Speaking of which, has this been done in the past? I'm not finding much, other than people wrongly selling standard aux cords as Grubby cords.
If Worlds of Wonder had just sent the audio tracks to Grubby through a standard aux cord and let him encode his own data, we wouldn't be in this mess.

I've seen some replacement Grubby cords that are black? But I haven't tried one, myself, so I can't vouch for their quality. I'm lucky enough to have the actual cord. I'd recommend looking at every Grubby listing closely, as sometimes people don't think to mention the cord (or it's folded up inside the battery compartment) but yeah, it's very rare. If the seller doesn't mention the cord, it's worth asking them about it. If it's someone clearing out an estate they may not know what the cord goes to so it may still be with them, too. Worth checking, for sure!
I think the replacement cords that you could order from Worlds of Wonder were black, so there's probably a few legit ones still floating around. Not sure if any of them are by a third party? Means you have to inspect the cable carefully before you order a black one online.
