Rated 1 out of 5 by from Timer doesn't work Purchased this for my son but the timer never worked since the beginning. I set it for 30 minutes and the songs only play for a few seconds and turns off. Poor quality. Very disappointed

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this for my 1 year old, because we started to ween her off her night time bottle. She loves the lights and songs, she sings herself to sleep. I didn't know that it was activated by her cry, which was a BONUS!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Second time it's broken for no reason! Where in law bought all the kids one of these for Christmas and ended up having to return three out of five of them because they wouldn't work then after getting the return line it works good for a couple months my son loved it went to sleep with it every night he would not sleep without it and then it just stopped working for no reason it wasn't dropped it wasn't thrown it was always taking care of and then stopped working . Something is poorly made inside them don't know what it is but I'm very upset and want my money back

Rated 5 out of 5 by from starlight hippo I bought the hippo for my grandson. He dose not sleep or ride in the car well. He loves everything about the hippo. His sleep pattern has improved and he rides SOOO much better!!!!! He loves the lights the most. I love that its portable. just wish it was in other colors so my granddaughter dose not have to have a blue hippo.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome! We got the hippo as a gift for our two month old for Christmas. I was super excited mainly for the lights for night time feedings. I had no idea it had cry sensors, that was a pretty awesome bonus. I had the product for 3 days and ordered one for my cousin in another state. I think the toy is awesome.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Voice Acitvation. My step mother bought this for my son for Christmas. We opened it on 12-26-2016. The voice activation does not work like it says it does. As well as the lights are very very dim. And when you press the story telling it will play one story then go to music.. I love the idea of voice activation and the lights. Seems fun and soothing. But does not work as they said it would.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is junk! I bought the hippo as a replacement for a different product my son had. At first we loved it! We loved that it would activate when my son would cry and he would go to sleep. After about a week there seemed to be a glitch. I'd have it on nature sounds and it would randomly start telling a story, but only a small section, then it would repeat over and over again. I called vtech as we no longer had the receipt and they sent us a new one. Well after a week the same thing happened and then it just stopped working. I have replaced the batteries and everything they recommend but nothing! DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!
