    Chad's Crappy Corner & The Third Gadget For His New Theme For October!

    Chad polled our loyal Patreon (the great folks who keep our show alive) as to what he should chose for his October them. Their verdict: Cheap Halloween gadgets!

    For his third Halloween gadget Chad Halloween found something clever from the Hyde and Eek! Boutique. (Clever name, that!) He found it at Target and here's a bit of info from the Target website: Bring out your inner ghoul with the Halloween Spooky Voice Microphone from Hyde and Eek! Boutique™. This microphone makes the perfect decoration with the antique look, while the animated style brings a fun surprise. The surprise is the voice recording and voice changer, you'll see Chad demo in this week's show.


    And Chad's take? Chad liked this gadget a lot. First of all, it's a great looking retro microphone. (I might buy one just to have it on display at Gizneyland.) Second of all, the electronic voice changer works very well. As Chad points out, it's not instantaneous. You say something short – about 15 seconds - and they built-in voice changer says it back with a scary voice. (A red recording light lets you know you're recording.) It's battery operated and the only weird thing about it is that the “Try Me” demo button is actually built into the unit and cannot be removed! Chad's thinks this a great gadget for just $15 at Target.


    I decided I had to get one of these for my Gizneyland studio. Surprise, it was on sale for $12.75 on 10/20/17 here at Target:
