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.
Got the dinosaur one because my son love the T-Rex and Move Like a Dinosaur songs on video. He listened to it daily and we've changed out the batteries once within that time. Now there is a problem with the connection between the song buttons and the power. It only plays if held still (by me) at a certain angle. If set flat on a table it doesn't connect and play the songs at all, and if held by the certain angle and get it to play as soon as it's moved at all it cuts off. Makes for a frustrating toy for a child when it doesn't work right and all you can tell them is it's broken after only a month of play. Unfortunately at $20 it's not worth buying another when other reviewers have had same issue. Seller: please have manufacturer look into this issue.
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.
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.
I thought it would be cute to have "Pink Fong" at grandma's house. "Grandma shark, do do,," It is so irritating. My little grandsons think all the songs are wonderful. We had to hide it from them before we all went crazy. I suggest you get this book for someone you kind of don't like, but feel obliged to send a gift for their baby/toddler.
It's too loud. I do not hear well, and this hurts MY ears. We will have to put some packing tape over the speaker. I'm glad I only paid $13 for this. I don't find it worth $20 or 25 by any means... But maybe that is because I am only familiar with the Baby Shark song on it? It will drive my middle child crazy when my toddler plays it though. And that is what I bought it for.
The song "Christmas Shark" is not actually the Christmas Baby Shark song. I was expecting it to say "Santa Shark do do do do do do" but it's just the Baby Shark song again. I'm not sure if this was a mistake or what but I was a little disappointed.
