This teardown is not a repair guide. To repair your Hasbro Bop-It Micro Series, use our service manual.

  1. Here's the Bop-It Toy! Compared to older versions of the game this one is more compact, thus allowing for more portability.

  3. Now we're ready to take apart the rest of the Bop-It toy. For the two additional screws in the middle we needed to use a thinner, longer Phillips screwdriver to reach the screws.

  4. When pulling both parts of the game apart, we made sure that no loose parts such as the spring shown fell off.

    • With the Bop It opened up, we can see the different components that make the game work:

    • The button used to detect a twist. Looks like instead of using a dedicated sensor to detect a twist, the toy connects the twist to a lever to push a button. Maybe this was done to save money, but this may not make the toy as durable.

    • The button used to detect a pull. Like the twist part, this also uses a button instead of a dedicated sensor.

    • The button that detects a bop. Since a bop is just a button press, this one doesn't need any additional fancy mechanical parts.

    • The speaker. It looks like it has a spring over it that makes "bopping it" as fun as it is.

    • The microcontroller. It's covered up by a glob top, so we can't actually tell what type of microcontroller it is unfortunately.

  6. Now let's see if there's anything else under the PCB. Unfortunately, there wasn't really much to see beside the reset button and a few capacitors.

  7. Alright, just a few more screws to go. Along with the speakers itself, we could also see another spring connected to it. This spring might be there to protect the speaker from any damage after "bopping it".
