Overall, very happy with this. The 60 song variety is great, and the projected color-changing stars are nice. The variety of options is good, and volume control dial is especially nice. We like that this plays music for so long - longer than similar products. My 2yo daughter likes to see the stars, but asks for the to be turned off after a minute because they're pretty bright. She does like to sit in a dark closet and see it light up.

Our only complaint was that the unit turns itself back on if it hears crying - music and lights. I guess this would be ok if we could control what would happen, but it seems to aggravate the situation and keep our 2yo up even more. To prevent the unit from starting on it's own at night - I opened up the unit (see photo) and disconnected the red wire from the back of the gold disc (microphone). The leads are marked as Speaker on the PCB, but it seems like it's only a microphone, and has not negatively affected the sound quality. Now the unit does not start back up if my daughter makes any noise at night, and we can start it manually if we deem it necessary.

Reviewed in the United States on 10 January 2019
When I opened the amazon box, on those 3 items in the box, this toy is what I saw 1st. Because it was exposed & its box is broken & not presentable. Upon checking this toy, I noticed that when I pulled the hippo out of its box gently, it wasn't tied from it. & The WORST thing is the sound & music of this toy or the toy itself, is defective. The "Row row row your boat" song, it kept on repeating but not complete & it's like a broken disk inside a car CD player,for example. I tried all the buttons but it comes back all over again & again & again in the row³ your boat that seemed stuck on something that the song kept on repeating without completing its lyrics. As what I've said in my 1st comment in another toy that came from you (Amazon), these are my newborn baby's gifts from us parents. So can you please resolve this one AGAIN.
Suggestions again Amazon???
Can you replace this defective toy? Since you delivered it defective already. ☹️
