Topic: Squeaker Hunt
Message: Posted by: Brenton Keith (Mar 20, 2009 04:58PM)
I am on the hunt to find the best squeaker. In my opinion, a "Soft Pillow" "Single Talk (one squeak)" small squeaker is ideal. A little over a year ago I bought Doc Wayne's "The Art of Public Squeaking", which came with this type of squeaker. I loved it and became very used to handling it. Unfortunately, after a year, it stopped squeaking. It was 1.75" in diameter and about .75" in height. I have tried to replace it and I've had no luck. I even bought another $6 "Art of Public Squeaking" book just so I could hopefully replace my little gem of a toy, and now it comes with a "Hard Pillow" and not nearly the same quality to get your best squeak on. I even tried to contact Doc Wayne by sending him a letter (his address is in the book), hoping he could help, but he never responded. I am desperate and I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction. Squeaks!

I'm not sure of the difference between hard and soft but I got a couple from http://www.magicwarehouse.com that seem to fit your description.

I just bought a dozen of the squeakers you described from Bob Little (at I believe 3 for a dollar). We had a short conversation and I believe they are harder to come by (hence my dozen). I just ordered 100 more from him (they're from Europe and I'd hate to be without).

Try him here:

I just picked up a bunch of fine working squeakers from my local pet store. They're sold as replacement squeakers for pet toys and you get 4 for about a dollar. Hard to beat.....

I too am looking for the squeaker that came with my "The Art of Public Squeeking." I stopped by The Magic Corner here in Raleigh NC and the owner was not able to find one either. Type of squeaker (spelled squeeker in the book) that Brenton Keith is talking about is different from the "pillow" style. In my opinion the squeaker that originally came with the book does work better, and I too am desparate to find a new one. I would by a large handful if I could find some. I believe the squeakers we are looking for are called "accordian style" squeakers. If anyone can find these that would be great. I looked at Bob Littl's site and I'm not sure of what kind of squeaker he is selling. I don't want my squeaker to go bad before I have a backup.
