  1. Should this skeleton make sound?

    Halloween Props
    Got this skeleton for $7.00 last year and he is nicely poseable and his eyes light up. When I got home I noticed this port on his chin and what looks like speaker grid under his chin area. Any idea of what kind of plug might work or not. None I have seen to fit and it only has 3 AA batteries for...
