Finally: a Working Lucky Cicada Keychain

Filed under: Lucky Cicada Key Chain | Video — Dan @ 3:28 pm

Folks who have followed this website for the past 16 years (there are a few who have) know about the Lucky Cicada Keychain, and how I’ve been looking for a working model for the past 16 or so years. I finally have one now. I had to pry it open and replace the batteries (should have used a 192, but I used a 392 instead), but it works. Here’s a video so you can see what it looks and sounds like.

    Legendary! My mom has one of these that I gave her MANY years ago. Do we just need to put a new battery in it?

    1. Dan says:

      That’s what I did. I just carefully pried it open and changed the batteries.
