Give your turkey a shake! It should respond by wobbling its head and playing the WAV file. 

If all is working well, give yourself a high five! You did it!

You can add different WAV files to your CIRCUITPY drive if you'd like your turkey to respond with different audio responses, or change your turkey's code to make it more or less sensitive to vibrations.


Problem: My Circuit Playground Express isn't recognized by Mu!

Solution: Make sure your board is set up with CircuitPython, which has the Circuit Playground Express show up as a flash drive named CIRCUITPY when you connect the CPX to your computer.

Problem: My servo isn't moving!

Solution: Check that a 5V power supply is connected and the slide switch on CRICKIT is set to "ON". The lightest color servo wire faces the center of Crickit, the darkest faces outwards.

Solution: Make sure you've updated your Circuit Playground Express with the latest special 'seesaw' version of the CPX firmware. This guide will show you how.
