Wonderful, but a DRAIN!
on January 6, 2009
My 21 month son received this book as a Christmas Present. He absolutley LOVES this book! The music is mellow, and the lights are enchanting. He enjoys looking at the pictures, and watching the lights around "baby". The major problem with this book, is it DRAIN's batteries. He's had it for less than 14 days, and it has gone through it's second set of batteries. The batteries required for this book can be found only at the jewelry counter, and in total cost more than the original price for the book. He was devistated when the batteries failed the first time. We replaced them, and he's played the music probably less than 30 times in the three day's the new batteries have been in the book. This morning, the batteries died again! At 4 dollars a pop for batteries (the book requires 3), we're not going to replace them for the third time. I feel terrible, because this is a great book. If not for the battery issue, I'd glady give this book a 5...however, for the tears associated with dead batteries again....I give it a 1.
