This remote has been one of my baby's favorite toys since we gave it to him at 8 months. We've had it almost 2 months now, and he's thrown it, stepped on it, sat on it, drooled puddles into it, and it's still going strong and singing its little toy heart out. It plays tons of songs, lights up at the top, and says numbers. My son really enjoys putting the end in his mouth to chew while mashing the buttons with his thumbs to make the music play.
The only problem with it is that it has "volume up" and "volume down" buttons. When your child pushes the volume all the way up, it is a little annoying, but not so loud that you can't live with it. It's not gratingly loud or anything, but a little fix can make this toy so much better. As a previous reviewer said, all you have to do to fix this is grab a screwdriver and pop out the little white rubber piece underneath the "volume up" button. For us, that made the button sag, so we took the little black bead out of the white rubber thingy so that the button couldn't make contact with the circuit board anymore, put the white rubber part back inside, and that fixed everything. The button was still technically pushable, but it no longer raised the volume. I HIGHLY recommend this fix. Once you do it, you AND baby will love this cute little toy.
