Super Cute, but Unfortunately Not Very Durable
on November 22, 2012
I bought this for my daughter when she was about 4 months or so because she loved pulling things to hear the sound. When I received it, it seemed huge for what I was intending, but nevertheless, I hung it on my baby's crib (and activity gym at the time) and began to pull it occasionally when I put her to bed or went in to check on her because she had awoken in the middle of the night. I slowly began liking it more and more. I liked it because the cord is quite long and would play the longest tune of all her music boxes. The tune seemed fine to me, though I might be tone deaf so probably not a good judge. Sometime around the 4th month of ownership, I noticed the owls belly looked funny. The music box had shifted inside of him and now was jutting out at a weird angle. I ignored that and continued on. Fast forward to about 14 months later and the other day I pulled it and felt something snap. That was the last tune it played. Now the pull is broken and will no longer play music. I have rather grown to like this little misfit owl, but I wonder if at a year and a half my daughter will soon be done with him. She never had a real affection for him anyway. His velcro is super flimsy and she often undid and flung him out of the crib anyway. I'll have to resist my urge to buy another.
