Is it supposed to be this quiet? I just bought this as a present and it was so quiet even set on the loudest setting that I thought perhaps the batteries needed replacing. So I opened it up and replaced the batteries but it's still so quiet I have to hold it up to my ear to hear it. I'm thinking there must be something wrong because with it so quiet on the loud setting, what would one need an even quieter setting?
It is not that quiet on loud, but not terribly loud either. You should not have to hold it to your ear on loud, although it is not as loud as many toys (which is why it is more tolerable to everyone else in the room or car who have to hear it over and over!)
