I've tried a stuffed bear, but having some aware response when rambling about an blocking part only to talk my self into a solution is a big plus to have.

Maybe I should hack a talking bear with programmer responses.

"that sound great"
"I like that idea"
"What about security"
"That's stupid, do as the client has asked"
"cool, sounds like you are on track to deadline"
