Hi Frank, and thanks for posting.

For moving the eyes, you might consider a servo like one of the ones below. Any of those can move the eyes left, right or straight ahead.

For sound input, our Sound Detector board might work for you and for a controller that receives input and controls the servo, our RedBoard Qwiic could be used.

You'd need to write the software that makes everything function the way you're looking for, but these parts should do the trick. :-)
