Let me preface this review that is the first animated toy that my 21 month daughter has played with and the recommended age for this toy is 2+ years. Let me begin with the good: it's a well made sturdy toy and the toy's description is accurate. However, I'm more concerned with the interaction factor. On the first day she was intrigued by Mickey Mouse (MM) and laughed and clapped her hands as he performed. But that only lasted 10 mins before she was doing something else. Personally, I thought the volume was too loud (and there doesn't appear to be a volume control button). During the following week, same thing, initial interest for about 5-10 mins. MM only has two modes and it gets boring to hear after awhile. There's not much opportunity for her to interact with it, she mostly just watches it perform. Because MM has that high squeaky voice it was difficult to understand his instructions for her to bob her head or to kick along with him; or to sing along since the lyrics were difficult to hear. I feel that there are a lot of other toys that would provide more fun for my hard earned money. For a toy of this price range ($45-$50) I expected something better. Also, I question whether this type of toy should be categorized under "development toys". If my daughter didn't learn to bob her head or kick sideways like a rock star, I am pretty sure she would still turn out ok :)
