My daughter played with it on and off for a day.

Amanda will say it is time to eat, and then after my daughter gets the food Amanda wants, Amanda will say she wants something else.
S. Brown
My daughter speaks very clearly and loud enough and yet Amanda doesn't recognize what she's saying and asks her to repeat herself.

In short, this is an amazing doll. In many ways she is like a little person for my daughter to care of. She has a distinct personality and a lot of fun play. My daughter has played with her for hours and she still says new things!

I think the previous bad review may have been related to the age of the child, which was four. The box says five and up. As far as the reliability of the speech recognition, my own daughter can get the doll to work almost all the time. Granted my daughter is seven and has a clear voice. I would NOT recommend this toy to anyone whose daughter has a speech impediment or is a soft talker. (Of course the doll might teach your daughter how to speak louder, which may be a plus.)

Also it states clearly in the instructions that you need to be in a QUIET room, which really is a no-brainer for a product like this. Anyone who has used cell phones or other speech-recognition products knows the drill. Kids however (especially very young ones) dont. So you do have to teach them a bit.

So how does she play? Well the setup is a bit of a pain. You have to set her time and date, and then she asks for your daughter to say her name a few times so she can learn her voice. Then she teaches your daughter how to play with her.

Here are some of the things I've seen her do:

- ask for and go potty. (This is funny and a bit gross. As a man I don't get it but my daughter loves it.)

- eat. (You feed her all kinds of food, which she knows when you put it in her mouth. Feed her the wrong thing and she knows and comments about it.)

- play games. (She sings and plays some animal sounds game. Pretty cute.)

- get sick. (you hug her to make her feel better)

... plus a bunch of other stuff.

I bought this doll for my 5 year old daughter and it is a HIT! It's the best doll she's ever had. We were nervous to purchase her because of all the bad reviews, however we've not had any problems at all with the exception of having to replace batteries, which is really no different than any of her other battery operated toys. This is the best doll ever!

I recently purchased this doll for my 7-year old daughter. She absolutely loves it and constantly fights over it with her 2-year old sister. I cannot stand it, though! It is annoying, repetitive, and constantly announces that it's batteries are low. This infuriates me! I believe a doll that costs $100.00 should come with rechargeable batteries. Instead, we are putting three new "C" batteries in it every two days. This is no exaggeration! I would not recommend this doll until improvements are made on its battery efficiency.

I am outraged to have spent $100 for this kind of frustruation. When these commercials started airing, this doll looked to be marvelous. My daughter was desperate to have it. So we bought it for her birthday, noting the hefty price tag. But I thought surely this was a reasonable price if she does all the things she's supposed to according to the box. Boy was I mistaken. Nothing about this doll functions properly. The set up is worse than setting up my VCR. She says the same irritating things over and over "mommy say my name". So my daughter yells Amanda at her for the next 20 minutes and it seems she's not having a very good time. Amanda also keeps repeating "You're not my mommy" and "you look funny upside down mommy". What the...? She asks to "go potty" and then when you put her on it she doesn't recognize it. Then she gets pitiful and says "i had an accident, I'm sorry mommy". This breaks my daughter's heart as she got her to the potty immediately. The batteries are dead in a flash. My daughter was so frustrated with this doll that she hasn't offered to touch it since the first day (we've had it a month). Here are a few words to describe how we feel about Amazing Amanda... angry, frustrated, dissappointed, irritated, and ripped off. Make sure you keep your box and receipt for returning purposes. Your gonna need them.

I got this a week ago for my daughter to play with, because her stupid box fooled me into thinking she really was amazing.

With Amazing Amanda, Jessica had to say her name for 25 minutes until she FINALLY reconized her voice. It annoyed us when Amanda said "You are not my mommy" over and over.

It also annoys us when she wants Jessica to feed her "breakfast." she'll giva Aamnda a pancake, but Amanda'll say "Silly mommy! Cookie not for breakfast." Same thing with her potty...Amanda doesn't even reconize when she's on her potty and complain that she had another "accident" again.

We didn't even get our money back when we sent her in!!!!!!!!!!!

This is hands down the most annoying doll I've ever had the misfortune of spending $100.00 on. How MANY times do you have to say her name and why do you have to continue to repeat it over, and over... It's so bad that I turned it off and now at least my little girl plays with it instead of throwing it in frustration. Agree with previous reviewer, it burns through batteries at the rate of lightspeed. This wouldnt be so bad if you could use rechargeable batteries, but nooooo. Not with this doll. Plus, if it runs out of batteries you'll have to repeat the long, tedious set up AGAIN!

No Amanda, I'm NOT your mommie! You need to go home now.

Save you money - this toy is the first one you'll hide or convieniantly loose after christmas. The frustration just isnt worth it.
