Poor sound quality, bad interaction, NOT baby-proof!,
This review is from: Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes (Baby Product)
I don't know if this was redesigned far worse than its original incarnation. I can't imagine anyone giving the version we have a positive review. It has three awful flaws.
First and foremost, it's not even remotely babyproofed. The button is coated with a cheap sticker, that with even the slightest bit of moisture starts peeling and coming off. Apparently whoever designed it didn't know that babies chew on things. The only recourse was to peel the sticker off before our daughter could eat it, which left a sheen of sticky glue behind. Pretty disgusting. We tossed it at that point.
Even if the toy wasn't fundamentally flawed, there are still serious problems. The sound quality is mediocre to poor. Particularly if you have the volume on the higher setting, there's a lot of scratchiness and distortion. It also has a terrible interface. Instead of playing each song in its entirety, it jumps to the next song when the button is pressed, and it's a VERY sensitive button. If your child is handling it at all, it'll rapidly cycle through the first few seconds of each song. In addition to being extremely annoying, it defeats the whole point of the toy. The equivalent of endlessly flipping through radio stations is not "music".

We haven't had a problem with the sticker and have had it for well over a month with nearly constant play. I see what you mean by some of the scratchiness with the sound but it's not enough to bother me or my son. Normally my son will press the button and go about doing something else. When a song ends, he presses it again. I am still pleased with the quality especially for the price.
