I'm not a huge fan of Baby Einstein stuff, but my son loved this octopus as an infant. We would play the songs for him again and again and he seemed to like it. One thing they don't show you is that the underbelly of the octopus is colorful and a baby likes to look up at the BOTTOM of the octopus, not just the face part. We hung this toy (has a velcro strap on top) over our son's bassinet when he was awake during the days. When we took it down to play with it with our son, we would sometimes spin it around while he looked at the bottom of it. It held his attention so he must have liked it.

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.

My daughter received this toy for Christmas. It quickly became a favorite of hers and therefore my husband's and mine as well. Baby girl is 9 months old now, and this guy keeps her entertained during diaper changes, toweling off after a bath, or anytime we need to put her down for a second to grab a diaper or a change of clothes. She has really put him through his paces and he holds up well. He's been spit up on, chewed remorselessly, even chucked into the diaper pail and he always comes out unscathed.

We received this toy at our baby shower, and were thrilled to get it. However, when we first started using it with baby, we noticed that it began to say the wrong color associated with the wrong foot. we would press the red foot, and it would say yellow. or press the white foot and it would say purple. Sometimes now, I'll just be walking by it, without pushing anything, and it will shout out a random color. Obviously, this isn't teaching our daughter anything!

My daughter is 4 months old and we have to take this toy with us whenever we visit friends of family. It plays music fine for her and the colors work. The only problem we have is that she listens to the music so often that the tunes get stuck in your head.

This toy is 3 languages, most toys are only English and Spanish and I specifically purchased this because it goes to French as well. My son's aunt is willing to teach French to him and this toy will help Mommy practice with him!

So I was looking for a really good toy for my 4 month old, and believed all the great reviews I read here. I could not be more disappointed with what arrived. I thought the fabric would be soft, maybe velour. Instead is it some horrible scratchy artificial fabric. The head of the octopus contains a big heavy sound box with a horrible velcro flap on the back to let you change the languages etc. But it means that the head is not at all soft to hug (almost heavy and hard enough to bruise, not to mention scratchy). It is so heavy, the thing won't even sit up without falling over. Finally, it is not really very well made - the images on the tentacles are not centered properly, and the buttons within the tentacles are small and difficult to find - how is my baby supposed to hit those!?! Come to think of it, the music isn't very inspired either.

Maybe this is now being manufactured from cheaper materials? Is Baby Einstein that hard up?

My husband bought this octopus for our daughter. She will smile at it when it plays music, but she's not very interested in it. I don't blame that on the toy as she's just not that into any of her toys.

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.
