To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My granddaughter wouldn’t put this book down once I gave it to her. She also has the toys so she was playing with the toys along with singing songs on the book. It’s an awesome book one of the best I found so far. Obviously it’s repetitive because it is the shark song but I think that’s what the kids like the most because it’s easy to remember
If your child loves Baby Shark as much as my 7 month old, they will love this book! You will forever have any and all Baby Shark songs stuck in your head for the rest of your life! Most children’s books like this just play the toon and the reader is expected to sing it, but this book plays the music and sings. You can sing along or just sit as your child enjoys. The songs are nice and long full versions of the song. I really like that it has an on off button on the back. This is great if you need to put it in a bag or suitcase, or just to save the batteries. I wish all singing books had this option. It’s over priced for sure but if your kid loves Baby Shark pay the extra money and watch their face light up. Just the cover of this book god my 7 month old excited to read it seeing his Shark friends he loves so much. I’d love see it at a $10 price range. But they are full length songs.
My son and daughter are both baby shark fans. (more so son since he's younger but my daughter still sings along being almost 4)
The pictures are vibrant. The music isn't Obnoxiously loud like so many other toys, but it's loud enough to be heard.
Best of all .... there's an off switch so if you get to annoyed the "batteries can die" for a bit till you "replace" them. .... so long as your kid doesn't understand switches. My daughter knows to look for switches so probably won't work for us, but may for you lol. (it's a tiny switch near battery compartment on back. Batteries are replaceable for actual replacing)
Anyway. I'm sure my son will love it for his Birthday Gift (he's turning 1 in a few weeks) Pages are thick cardboard-like pages. He'll probably chew on them and make them a tad frayed over time, but at least they won't rip to shreds easily.
I cannot tell you how much my granddaughter loves this little book! She's only 15-months-old right now, but Baby Shark is her jam and her best friend and when she got this book she started to carry it around and play with it almost exclusively. And it has held up to all the punishment, too, no matter how many times she presses the same button or picks it up by one page. I'm amazed and delighted. She's even starting to really pay attention to things we point to, and to know what a "star" is...things like that, because she goes over these songs endlessly all day. So are we pleased? You BET we are! Best buy I've made in a long time on Amazon!
My 2 year old daughter LOVES baby shark and LOVES this book. It stays in the car because it keeps her happy when doing errands and on extended car rides. She is pretty rough on Books and managed to bend the front cover on the first day she got. She has also peeled off some of the front and back cover so i wish it were a little bit more sturdy and durable. But my daughter loves it so I think it’s great. Highly recommend if your toddler likes baby sharks songs.
Best book ever! This is the third one I have purchased for my great grandson. It is his favorite and carries it around constantly. He is 13 months old and doesn't know the proper way to care for a book so the other two books spines ripped from him folding book wrong . Book itself would probably be durable and study for an older child but as he loves this book so much, I will keep replacing it as needed till he is old enough to know how to handle it properly. BEST BOOK EVER!!
OK, so I assumed the actual pages would be the same ones I remembered when buying these books for my own children. These are thick, but if Grandma sets her coffee cup on it, it will leave a stain! No "coating" like these books once had. The speaker buttons work really well, and the sound is good. I know already that the paper, being uncoated, will fall apart.
Like my title says, this item is expensive for what you get ($20). My daughter is in love with the baby shark song so being the sucker that I am, got her this book. The pages are difficult for her to flip versus other books that have tabs or at least space between the the pages and the side for her to stick her fingers in and flip them. These require much more fine motor skills which my 11 month lacks for the moment. I think there a better quality books out there but of course because it's baby shark the quality and thought into the product is less and the price higher, hence my 3 stars.
We gave this book to our granddaughter on her second birthday, and she loves it so much that she screams if anyone tries to take it from her. She plays the songs over and over and over again. A great gift for her, and even better for me as I think of her parents having to listen to her play the songs over and over and over until the battery dies!
