This is a cool and fun interactive book toy. I have to say that I wouldn't spend $20 for it though. I got it in a quick deal on Amazon for $6 and it is very much worth that price. I wouldn't pay too much over $10 for it because the stickers for the pages are very cheap looking and some of mine were wrinkled. My daughter (almost a year) loves the book!

As you turn the pages, it has a slight pause, then switches to sing the rhyme on the page it was turned to (a good transition). There are 6 pages with rhymes on them - (1) I went to the animal fair, (2) The ants go marching (3) Row, Row, Row Your Boat, (4) One, Two, Buckle Your Shoe, (5) Hickory Dickory Dock, and (6) Pat-a-Cake. The singing is pleasant and not annoying and you can adjust the volume to a lower setting.

A few other nice features of this book is that it can stand in front of the child for easy page turning but my daughter likes knocking it down when it is standing and prefers to turn the pages like a regular book laying on the floor. The book has to be open for it to stand, it was designed to be balanced that way, and will topple if closed. That isn't an issue for us but something to be aware of. There are also three interactive buttons on the "binding" middle piece of the book. One button is for A, B, C's and one is for 1, 2, 3's and one is for colors. My daughter really enjoys pushing those. It will interrupt the song and talk about A for animal, A for ant, B for boat, B for buckle and so on. Then 1 for 1 lion, 2 for 2 ants, and yellow lion, green ants for the numbers and colors. It also has some fun sound effects after it says the animal or thing. Also, if the book is closed and the child hits the nose on the face, it will say "hello!" which is fun. Good buy for what I paid, happy with the product.

my daughter will be 5 months old in a few days and over Christmas she played with this toy that belonged to her 11 month old cousin. My daughter LOVES this book. It is fantastic for her development because the turns the pages, *tries* to scoot to it a little and will stay on her tummy for longer if it is in front of her. She can't independently play with it for long without getting frustrated yet because it is a bit bulky but I am sure that will change soon enough. Really this is a great toy for a 3 to 6 month old too!

Also, the negative review about the cardboard must be an old model because ours is printed sticker pages on plastic like the v-tech books - durable as far as I can tell.

I bought this toy for my daughter's first birthday. She opened it and instantly wanted it out of the box to play with.
She's a big fan of books and anything that plays music, so the two together are a big hit. She absolutely loves this toy!
The educational number/alphabet/color buttons are ones she doesn't quite understand yet, but it'll come eventually.

This was a gift to my 8 month old twins who are now 10 months. I found this book toy to be a bit unwieldy and the pages are hard to turn. They're not set in there very loosely so it takes quite a bit of force (for a baby) to separate the pages and then once you start turning the page the whole thing flips over. They seem to still have fun with it, but it never stands up and plays it's song while baby turns the page - this just is not possible due to how it's made. Cleaning the pages is a challenge because it's cardstock stickers and is bubbling up a bit after a couple months of light cleaning. I would pass on this storybook and check out others.

I purchased this for an 8 1/2 month old boy who is walking all over the place. He loves regular cardboard books. He loves when nursery rhymes are sung to him. However, he just couldn't figure this out and so wasn't interested. The design is bad too.

First, I thought the pages would be easily turnable by the little guy but they are not. It takes an adult to turn them.

Second, the stand on the bottom is awkward and I wish it was removable. It is large and makes it almost impossible to hold it as a book. If it is standing up straight on the stand then unless the baby is laying flat on his stomach he cannot see the pages. If he holds it like a book the big stand is in the way. Also, it makes it awkward to put in a toybox or on a bookcase. So I really wish it was something that could be removed by an adult. I also feared that if he layed the book flat he would hurt himself on if he fell onto the stand. Not a smooth edge to fall on.

Third, the buttons for letters and numbers only include the letters A and B and the numbers 1 and 2. That came as a shock to me. Why so few?

For all of the above reasons I cannot imagine even reintroducing the toy to him when he gets older and can manipulate it better.

I want to say that I am a huge Fisher-Price fan and will remain one. This was the very first Fisher-Price toy that I was unhappy with. It certainly won't stop me from being a Fisher-Price fan or buying from them in the future. Everyone gets one mistake.

My daughter received this as a Christmas gift. She was 4 months old then (now 7 months) and has absolutely loved this toy! She loves turning the pages now that she is older. She has grown familiar with the nursery rhymes and they frequently get stuck in your head. Just today, she knew to look at me when the lion roared (b/c I always roar with the lion!) Besides just the nursery rhymes (sung in songs with music), the toy also talks about numbers, letters and colors.

I do agree with other Reviewers that the design was poorly thought out. Like, for example, it's like some toy executive at the last minute changed their mind and wanted the toy to stand vs. be a hand-held toy (maybe to differentiate it from other similar electronic storybooks??) Therefore, the storybook can't possibly stand while your child plays with it b/c it'll topple over while either pushing buttons or turning pages. And the first time I cleaned it, I used Clorox Wipes and a bleach water disinfectant to sanitize it. I didn't realize the pages were merely paper-like stickers. So there was some warping to the pages that occurred, which I would have thought would have been made with a more durable coating.

We got this today for our 12mo's birthday and it is attractive but way too unstable on the base. He does not play rough, but he knocked the tower down every time he went to press a button. It's built awkward so that the pages do not turn or the buttons can't be pressed without the whole thing tumbling down. He likes the songs, and the variety of sounds is nice, but the stand-up tower construction is more frustrating than good. We'll see how long this holds his attention, but I'm not expecting he'll play with it for long.
