This biggest gripe I have about this toy is that handle hits the on/off switch and turns it off way too easily. I have to stay with her to keep turning it on. I don't mind because I am a stay at home mom of one, so she gets 100% of me all the time!
It does some quirky things with the music. They way it plays the music, it stops and starts in different parts and changes songs mid song. I expected the piano keys to play like a piano, but they start different songs, playing only part of the song. If you hit the keys again, the song continues. While the song is playing, the piano keys work as a piano. It is very odd! There is a little disc you spin to make a scratching sound like a DJ would do. I think they could have used the space for a better feature there! I am not sure if replacing the batteries would make anything change in the music department. It came with batteries in it and, as with all toys, they may not be great batteries.
The volume is really low when it is on carpet as the speaker is on the bottom. I can imagine if it was on tile or hardwood, it would be pretty loud. There is no volume control.
Other interesting things about this: The stickers on it were already slightly peeling on the edges when it arrived. Fingers can easily get slammed when the handle falls down. It rolls pretty fast, even on carpet, but this has not been a problem for her as she can keep up with it. My daughter is really gentle so pushing the buttons isn't too easy for her. She likes to be dainty and use one finger! My daughter loves the little instruments that came with it!
All in all, she is having fun with it and that is all that matters. She is 11 months and doesn't even notice the things I do! So as long as she likes it, it works for me. In my eyes, I just think it could have been better!
The primary problem is that the speaker is on the bottom of the toy. This gives very little volume to the music and it also sounds very muffled. In my opinion, the designer didn't give much credit to actually HOW the music sounds.
We've played with this toy maybe twice. My frustration with it grows higher every time I pull it out. It was a waste of my money.
Stick with Leapfrog products. They're great!
