  • Making plush toys with retractable parts?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm new to making plush toys and I was wondering how would you go about making one with a retractable tongue, and what materials would you need for that?

    The idea is that whenever you squeeze it, the tongue would poke out.

    Any help/tips are appreciated.

    Cheers!

    You'd need some kind of air pump inside it, even just a tiny rubber bulb with a length of balloon (the long thin sort used in balloon animal making) attached to it. If you wanted the tongue to be fabric you'd have to cover it.

    I'm sure there are other ways to get a functioning pop out tongue, but I can't think of anything non air related if you want the tongue to pop out when the toy is squeezed
