5.0 out of 5 stars He's a good dog who sings songs (all the way through), April 1, 2007
This review is from: Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Love to Play Puppy (Toy)
This little pup is a very awesome baby toy!! For $20 (or less--we got ours for free during a 2-1 Fisher Price special), he is very interactive and elaborate.

While he may not always have a light-up bone (as in Amazon's description) he counts, names body parts and colors, has funny sayings, and sings many songs (ENTIRE songs). He's funnier, more educational (and cuter) than "Tickle-Me-Elmo"--minus the annoying voice.

A few of folks have been rating him poorly because his songs cut off early. This is possibly a misunderstanding resulting from the pup not being taken out of "demo" mode. You have to pull a plastic tab out of his back in order for him to fully function (otherwise his songs cut short). Unfortuantely the directions are not clear on the box and the tab doesn't stand out so it is easy to mistake him for a "bad musical toy"... However, once he's out of demo mode the songs aren't just longer but more plentiful too. He (or she) has a nonstop sweet voice.

One more tip - The "off" switch on this pup's foot does not always work and he easily can be turned back on by being touched (a naptime annoyance). He has a better shut-off switch (and volume control) on his back velcroed under his "skin."

All-in-all, this little pup is quite loveable. :)

Thank you for telling me about the 'demo' mode! I bought this and was ready to take it back because I thought it was short-ed out - but now I won't! :)

I had this sent to my 7 month grandson. My daughter had the same problem regarding it being too sensitive..shutting off every time it was touched. I asked her about the DEMO tag being removed. She says she DID but that it is still doing it. I am going to have her look again and to also look at the switch under the Velcro as you mentioned
