When you put them into the player, the hole in the middle of the CD is not completely round, it is round with one flat side on it. The peg that it fits onto also has a flat spot on it, to match the CD up with. The only reason for this is so that when the CD is in the unit, the words and picture are horizontal, and easy to read (I assume so anyway, I cannot think of any other reason they would do this).
This is really tough for an independent two year old to do. My son would always get frustrated with it, and end up not playing with it. He always wanted to put the cds in himself, so we just ended up not using this much.
Finally, I realized that the flat spot could be ground into a rounded edge, so I used my ground the flat edge so that now the hole in the cd is a real circle, and now the cds work no matter what way they were put in.
I'm not sure why the recommended ages are 9-12; I would think something like this is more geared towards my daughter's age group - maybe a little older, because the book's stories are long for her. A 9-year-old would already have much more sophisticated taste in music (and probably their own REAL CD players), and I wouldn't call the music box a "CD player", because that's probably a bit deceptive, BUT I still have to give this toy 4 stars, because my daughter will still sit down for a really long time just playing with it and switching out the CDs.
I'll have to get something else for the actual Backyardigans songs - I really wish someone would come out with a gadget for two year olds that could play .mp3's.
