Rated 4 out of 5 by Lolo Great toy
My son had been using this almost daily for several months before the battery died. He was so sad when it stopped working! He started playing with it right before his first birthday. A warning...the song can get really tiring to adults, and there doesn't seem to be a volume button to turn it low. Also, the picture doesn't have the actual toy that is described! The current item has very cute sea animals that make sounds when they are pressed. The main con about this is the batteries that came with it. When I took them out, I noticed that there was a warning not to dispose of in household trash. It was unclear as to whether they are alkaline batteries or not, so I'll have to take them to a battery disposal site to figure it out.

My husband got this toy for our son (who is now almost 4 y/o) when he was an infant, and he would play with it all the time. He loved that it lit up, played music, and made animal sounds! When he was little he was the kind of baby that threw/dropped stuff, so he dropped it a lot, and now it doesn't work right, but we still have it until I purchase a new one, or one like it because I think my 8 m/o daughter would love it just as much as my son did! The only thing I didn't like about the toy is the number buttons sometimes would stick when you pushed them, but they were easy to get unstuck with a butter knife.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Music Nerd Not properly educating children.
I am a Music Education major, and my baby niece has this toy. I was very disappointed to hear it singing, "Do Re Mi", when in fact, for those pitches that were being sung, the actual correct solfege would be "Do Sol Do". This might sound silly, but if you are a music educator or are involved in music in any way, this will drive you up the wall. Also, it is not properly educating your child when it comes to simple basics of music. It would be the same as if the toy counted from 1 to 10, and skipped 3. If V-tech prides themselves in educating youth, they should include Music as a part of this education.

My husband and I bought this for our eight month old son a few weeks ago after we played with it in the store. The toys star shaped plunger, mini animals, and colorful buttons help encourage his fine motor skills development. Max and I will sit on the floor for hours playing with VTech toys and this is a great edition.
