***UPDATE on 4/1/2011***
Below you can read my original review, it was a 5 star review but now I have changed it to 3. Why the change to 3 stars...because they stopped working after a couple months of use...yes, I said they because after the 1st one stopped working we bought a second one since my girls loved the bubbles so much(and the first one had fell in the water one time but the 2nd one did NOT) With the first unit at first it was great, it made TONS of bubbles(as I stated below) even with cheap/crappy bubbles. It burns through batteries really quickly...my girls did use this everyday but for no more than 30 minutes at a time, most of the time less than that. If the batteries are weak, it will not blow bubbles so we were changing batteries a LOT. But soon, it wasn't even a battery problem, the bubble blower just wouldn't turn, it kept getting stuck when it did turn and it just wasn't blowing enough air to actually blow the bubbles. The rest of the machine works but not the bubble maker which is the whole reason to buy this toy. So we bought a 2nd one, I used good bubbles(good bubbles make even MORE bubbles, btw) and several times washed the bubble part. The new one still runs out of batteries super fast and it has already stopped blowing bubbles most of the time. It will occasionally start to turn and blow bubbles for a few minutes and then it will stop again...I didn't buy this for only a few minutes of occasional bubbles. So, based on the fact that 2 of them have quit working in such a short time, my review is now a 3 star and I would NOT recommend buying this toy now. I think we are going to buy our girls the Yookidoo Flow 'N' Fill Spout just search around for cheaper prices!

My daughter got this for Christmas when she was 16 months old. It has worked great ever since we got it! My only complaint is that it doesn't come with bubbles to put in it. However, I was actually MORE happy with the outcome because of that. We wound up using her Johnson baby shampoo. We pour in some shampoo and a little water and we get TONS of bubbles! Plus, it smells amazing!

I couldn't get it to stay on the tub wall. It kept falling in the water. My son likes to play with it on the floor, but the bubble part only works if it is upright. Since I can not get it to say upright we only use it as a music toy and can not use the bubble machine.

This toy could be a fun toy for toddlers in the bathtub; however, it has some major problems in my opinion. First off, it is very heavy, and no matter the surface, it will not stay stuck! This can be dangerous if it falls off and hits a young child, which it almost did with my 13 month old granddaughter. The small suction cups are not strong enough to adhere it to the bathtub OR the tile wall. And, when it falls, all of the liquid bubbles spill into the tub. I don't recommend it for children!!

This is literally the biggest piece of garbage I have ever ever bought! The bubble part of it is constantly breaking! I actually returned my original "broken" octupus for a new one and that one stopped making bubbles as well! We tried everything...new bubbles, different location, etc.. all in all just a piece of garbage. I wrote to VTech and their customer service was ATROCIOUS! Told me to replace batteries, clean compartment w/an eraser, and to switch the on/off buttn 40 times...sadly I have a job and children so am unable to devote such time to fixing a poorly manufactured toy!

Save your money and for $6 buy Gymboree Bubbles..now those are impressive!

My daughter just got this toy for her second birthday. I was very excited to use it because she loves bubbles, music, and bath time so this seemed like the perfect toy for her. She absolutely loves it! It blows TONS of bubbles and plays lots of music. I expected there to be an issue because it's not supposed to be "fully submerged" in water (it is to be suctioned to the side of the tub) but my daughter never tried to pull it down, she just reached up to press the buttons and then giggled when the bubbles sprayed her! The only problem I had with this toy is that you cannot just suction cup it to any part of the tub. It pretty much has to have a ledge underneath it or it will fall down. Once we found the right spot for it it stopped falling down and now I have to say it was my daughter's favorite birthday present!

This toy is a good idea and the appeal of bubbles during bath time, is obvious to a child, but the problem is that the toy is not water proof. So if the toy falls into water or if some water from the shower hits the toy, it will fail. I do not understand why someone designs a toy to be used in the bathtub and does not account for guard against water.

Stay away from this toy and save your money.

My 2 year old loves this toy but, unfortunately, we have had nothing but problems with it. I bought it for him for his birthday and six days later, the motor to make the bubbles come out was no longer working. I thought maybe I just got a bad one and took it back and exchanged it for another one. The other one is slightly better but neither one would stick to our bathtub wall, you have to keep it upright or the bubble solution will spill out, and it burns through batteries and bubbles like crazy. I will probably be returning this one and getting something different. A shame too because my son really seems to like this toy.
