Addressing what seem to be the two major complaints:
It DOES play the full songs. There is a plastic tab that has to be pulled free from the battery compartment to take it out of Demo Mode. I did not do this personally, I only mentioned it to the 5 year old and she accomplished it. Once done, however (again, by a 5 year old), it played the full songs.
It is not a "real" microphone. The amplified voice effect is somewhat muddled and not particularly strong. This matters little to a 5 year old girl. She was thrilled to hear her voice along with the music. Adults may think it is terrible, little children will think it is great.
It hooked up easily to a smartphone and she could sing along with any song she liked. It played that music more than adequately. After 30 straight minutes, you will come to believe that the amplification is more than sufficient. Her parents certainly did.
I like to give loud gifts because I enjoy seeing children enjoying themselves as children should. And also as revenge on my older brother. That's what Uncles are for.
1) You have to hold down a button for the Mic to actually amplify your child's voice. Please bear this in mind if you're buying for a smaller child. My kid is nearly 3 and can't manage to keep the button depressed
2) There are no volume up- down settings.
3) This doesn't play the version of " Let it go" sung by Idina Menzel (Elsa), which was disappointing, since that's the version my child is familiar with. Instead, it plays the version sung by Demi Lovato, and plays the following verse: Let it go, let it go
Can't hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go
Turn my back and slam the door
And here I stand and here I'll stay
Let it go, let it go
The cold never bothered me anyway
4) Only the following portion of "In Summer" is played:
Bees'll buzz, kids'll blow dandelion fuzz
And I'll be doing whatever snow does in summer.
A drink in my hand, my snow up against the burning sand
Prob'ly getting gorgeously tanned in summer.
I'll finally see a summer breeze, blow away a winter storm.
And find out what happens to solid water when it gets warm!
My daughter seems to enjoy playing with it, and once she's old enough to hold down the Mic button for herself, she'll probably have even more fun with it. For the price, I'm not sorry I bought it, but I wish I had known the previously listed things before purchasing.
As a wife and as a mom of 3 kids, I spend a lot of time shopping for deals on the best products out there for my family. It's important to me that if we're spending our hard earned money that we get a top notch product in return. I often rely on the reviews and opinions of others when contemplating purchasing a new product that I haven't tried before myself. Because of that, any products that I buy (whether on Amazon or from a 3rd party) I always make sure to leave a detailed review of the product to help others when selecting items to purchase, as well. My family tests these products fully before forming a solid opinion and writing a review. When I write a review, I keep in mind that those reading are also looking for honesty about the product and want an unbiased opinion to go by. If my review has been helpful to you, please give me a "Yes" vote on my review. Thank you!
