Default Mail alert

Don't know if this is the right place but here goes. Because most of our snail mail is bills I am making a new mailbox of a "Shaun the sheep" and the postman can stick the bills in it's butt. ( I have a childish sense of humour) I would like an alert that goes Baaa when he puts the mail in. There are various types of mail chimes out there but havent been able to find one that does this. Does anyone know where I can find such a thing. I'm just finishing a Darth Vader mailbox and the Star Wars theme would go well there too.

The brown looking patch is a reflection of the ground cover, after I went back to touch up the paint.

R2D2 would be a good place for a hidden camera.

As for the sheep,
About 4 years back there were Holiday type cards with 30 second recorders built in about $8, you record whatever you wanted, the person opened it and it would play back.

Electronic eye to start the process. Thing garage door safety device. You could also look at pinewood derby timing parts. Sender in one cheek, receiver in the other. Then wire in whatever sound device you may.

Recordable Greeting cards. I see 10S, 20S and 120S cards.
