Taking apart old electronic toys

Anyone else do that or used to do that?
Its really fun, especially if you can disconnect some of the parts and re-use them. :)
Just make sure to wear rubber gloves!

I did it when I was little. One toy in particular, my mom hated it, so she took out the battery. It still made noises after that, it scared the shit out of her. When I took it apart I found a watch battery in it though, which put here at ease lol.


I haven't really done it since I got into computers.

Intentionally take them apart? Nah. Put them in the microwave? Yes. :P

Good times. Bad smell.

I've always had the idea of taking apart all that junk, but then I realised I don't have an actual project I could work with (except for putting many cool lights in somewhere).

I used to do that, and I still do it, not with toys but with old things that won't work anymore. For instance, I fixed an old no-break and now I'm using it, it just had some fuses burnt and some wires were hanging loose, so I soldered them back and done.

Also I forgot how many times I opened up controllers to solder the wires back in, because people seem to like to pull the controller even with it's cable fully extended :P Now I only have wireless things, mouse, keyboard, controllers, hell I can't wait for we to have wireless recharging or power supply :P

Me and my buddies use to do circuit bending with old electronic keyboards and kids toys to make "awesome" music.
