Having my sweet little friend play with this is infinitely better than allowing her to play with my real phone. The girl is already phone-obsessed...and she's not even 2! Since I cannot say no to her, I used to let her play with my regular smart phone. After she was kind enough to order a few pay services from my mobile phone provider, I decided I better do something different. I found this phone and ordered it as one of her Christmas presents. She loves it! Christmas was about 2 months ago, and she still plays with this thing all the time. It's a very well-traveled phone - she takes it with her everywhere. It isn't loud enough to be an annoying distraction. A gift that makes the child, the parents, and the extended friends happy is a total score. I'd buy it again!
Despite the other holiday gifts that were around, my 2-year-old nephew kept coming back to this. He was walking around the house babbling into it, with it up to his ear. He needed no help pushing buttons to elicit noises. And his parents didn't hate the ring, they thought it was very mild. I can't speak to the battery life or durability, but it was really nice to see the immediate engagement.
I got this item on sale for Christmas for my little grandson. they were out of stock so had to wait for it to be sent ( got here with everything else anyway. I especially called to ask for a new toy , because I was told they had a" few"in the warehouse.well I thought maybe those few had been laying around the warehouse for a while. so I asked for them to wait until the new shipment came in. the lady assured me they would send a brand new toy.but, then they did just what I asked them not to do. the very day I talked to a manager they put the toy in the mail. she promised me I would get a new toy from the new shipment in maybe a week. somehow a toy magically appeared and off it was sent. strange how it appeared like that when the web site stated they were out of stock.OLD TOY? I think so. my whole order has taken so long and I have been told so many stories about it all. I am so frustrated at this point . poor quality items. not like overstock.:(
