This project has been an exercise in upgrading a toy without damaging it. I made a couple of screw holes in one of the keys, but those will not be visible, and I didn't repeat that offense. After that, I avoided any extra holes or harmful adhesives. Getting power into the device required a socket since I was running all the wires to a ten-pin connector.

The first time I soldered all the wires, I did so without running them out a hole in the chassis. After that, I forgot to add the mounting nut, and I had to desolder the wires a second time. The third time, I had short pieces of shrink tube on each wire, the necessary nut, and everything worked.
Wired plug. Third time's a charm

I made a coil of the excess wire inside the body but routed them so they would not interfere with the keys. From the outside, the plug looks neat and clean.
