Rated 1 out of 5 by from We would love it if it actually worked. I purchased this product from Walmart a little over one month ago and have only used it 3 times. 1. The sounds skip like a cd and I have to power it down and turn it back on a few times to quick fix the issue. 2. The hippo does not turn on when my little one cries. 3. No matter what the timer is set to, the hippo only plays one sound and then turns off. I have to keep pressing a button to keep my little one entertained. It's annoying. 4. Even more, if I don't press a button before the sound ends, when I do press the button it plays the same sound. 5. Finally, I attempted to go take a quick video while writing this and the hippo died. Like, it literally cannot be revived. Again, we used it THREE times -_-

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My son is 8 weeks old and his hippo died already We have only used this toy a few times. I gave up on it quickly because It kept playing the same songs over and over. We definitely were not getting the 100+ soothing songs, melodies, sounds and phrases that it is supposed to have. Then today I decided to give it another try and it can't get past "rockab..." It skips halfway through the word and starts over. Please see video. Overall very disappointed. I don't have a receipt and we are past the 90 days target gives for returns.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Who's child goes to sleep in 45 sec? Whats the point in a toy that inly stays on for 45 sec? Or the stories of a nax 2 minutes. There are 60 melodies but you have to press the button again after each one. What parent wants to be doing that while trying to fet their child to sleep?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I thought it was love at first sight So i just had my son last month and we received this at his welcoming party as a gift. I thought it was very cute and had alot of cool features. We used it the first night we got it and we loved it. Perfect amount of light & great volume control. The 2nd night however, 2 min in, it switched modes by itself into song mode and got stuck. It sings the first couple words of row your boat, and starts over & repeats itself over and over. Sounds just like a scratched cd. I was hoping it was just a fluke and would not happen again but it happens every time i turn it on, it cant stay in any mode for more than a min or so without going back to that song and getting stuck.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Timer does not work. Timer can be set to any increment yet it will only play 20 seconds of music before completely shutting off. I changed the batteries and no change. Issue still occured.
