Lisa Carroll of New York City is the inventor of Furry Friends, a line of stuff animals that sing and dance to different genres of music, with just the touch of a button. Lisa knows music. She was Carol Channing’s understudy in the Broadway production of “Hello, Dolly!” (but the Tony Award winner Channing was famous for never missing a performance!). And Miss Carroll once sang on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1961. Watch her highlight reel below. (The Beatles, Ed Sullivan’s most famous guests, didn’t appear on the show until three years later in 1964.)
Carroll is clearly passionate about music but will her singing stuffed animals have a chance against the portable miniature golf set Noochi Golf? You’l have to tune in to find out. The Toy Box airs Sundays at 7pm on ABC.
