It is soft and (I thought) a decent size. It's true that it doesn't "sit up" well for long. It ends up getting kind of floppy-headed and its head will lean back on its legs when it's set down on the floor. This doesn't affect its use in any way, it's just an annoyance for those of us who keep trying to get its head to sit up nice.
The songs are played by pressing on the head. It IS really sensitive, but that's so a baby can make it work. The color words are played by pressing the circles on the feet. They are too difficult for a baby to work.
I didn't mind the music, although I agree with one reviewer who said one of the songs reminded her of circus music. There is one song which is kind of frentic (I called this one "the crazy song"). The music is very electronic sounding, not soothing. This toy is definitely designed for play time.
My son is almost 2 now and we still have the Octoplush. Here are my observations after having this thing for so long:
1) The toy will go crazy when the batteries are low. Before they stop working, they seem to make the toy act bizarre and work in weird ways.Read more ›
The color spots on the arms are a little too difficult for a baby to push since you have to squeeze it just so between your thumb and forefinger. The octopus head plays very easily though. Maybe annoyingly so. I'd placed it in a chair while my daughter was sleeping and then put some clothes on top of it and the thing started playing music. Twice! And the songs seem to go on FOREVER. I usually press one of the legs to get it to shut up. Thankfully, there is volume control and I never use the loudest setting. Oh, and I hate the music. The first tune reminds me of circus music. That's just a personal preference though and it might not annoy others.
It's odd shape makes it difficult to hold or tote around. My daughter who carts around the largest and heaviest objects her tiny hands can carry, has never toted this anywhere.
One of the arms is no longer working despite the fact that this toy gets minimal play.
On the plus side, I think this is a toy that I will get more use out of as my daughter grows. Once she can press buttons on the arms herself, I think it will aid her in learning her colors. Maybe even in Spanish.
I gave this a rating of 3 stars. One star was deducted for the broken arm and the other was deducted for the awkward shape and the parental annoyance factor.
