We have had no problems with this toy. You put in the 80's favorite size of batteries (C, nothing else but the Fisher-Price Open Top Take-Along Swing - Rainforest and an old boom box run on C batteries) and it's weighted fine. Maybe it didn't pop up because batteries weren't in there. The batteries add weight to make the whole thing work as intended.
It wasn't hard to blow up. The valve is more "industrial" than most valves, so I agree that it takes more than blowing up a small beach ball, but I see that as added quality and not a knock.
The only issue so far, is that at medium range, our daughter is scared of the blasted thing. Close up, she is fine with it. She "bats" it and no problem. Far away, daddy hits it and she laughs. But at two-ish feet, she screams in bloody murder at the scary attacking penguin with the creepy clown-like "huuuuh-huuuh-huuuh-uh-huh" that it makes when "batted."
And the last thing that is just my two cents, but oh well. There is no real educational value to this toy. It's fun. But really, I see it as beginning self-defense training. It says somewhere on the box that it teaches your kid to "bat." What the heck is "batting" but "hitting?" I'm all about the real toys and sick of this PC stuff, which is why I'll train her to kick the thing in a month from her Johnny Jump-Up. But whatever. I thought I'd just add that.
Like another reviewer said, the toy also doesn't pop back up everytime. Sometimes it just stays on it's side.
In summary, if your child is just sitting and not mobile this toy might be okay. If your child can crawl or walk stay away from this toy.
I found this hard to blow up, yes, but my son had no trouble. I read in another review that it was a problem, but I have a problem with balloons too. I also read complaints about the penguin not popping back up. This can easily be rectified. Make sure the penguin is completely inflated, we too had the penguin just lay there until we added more air.
My 6 month old and my 23 month old enjoy this toy. It gets carried around by my older daughter and my 6 month old (whom it was purchased for) will sit next to it batting it around. She's even kicked it with her feet as I held it above her.
One tiny problem, my 23 month old thinks the balls need to come out so she can roll them on the floor.
As for the educational value, those who think there is no educational value must not understand babies. As a baby bats this toy it will roll over and pop back up, teaching cause and effect. Also the contrasting colors are great for babies.
I will have to say I don't know anything about the music as we haven't been able to get batteries yet, too expensive in our local small town, when we get somewhere that it doesn't cost a fortune for a pack of batteries we will get to see what the penguin does.
Overall I am extremely happy with this purchase, I still remember my clown wobble toy when I was a child and these are so much fun for babies.
