      We received a set of these for my 18 month old. I was a little disappointed that I had to put the stickers on myself and that the pictures were stickers and not printed on the buckets. In fact we never even put the stickers on as we intended to use them in the water. These toys were a hit both in and out of the water. my son is now three and he still plays with them - although now he uses them for pretend play (serving pretend food, housing animals, etc). This toy has grown with my children. It started out as buckets to empty and fill, then to nest and stack, a shape sorter, a sorting game, and then as a prop in pretend play. The quality is superb. Nobody would ever guess my set is over two years old. Plus they are super easy to clean!

      We bought this for my oldest son when he was one and he is now three. my youngest son is now one and both boys love this ball. it was an early favorite for both boys as it was easy to grab & hold on to. We still use it for play. it is great quality and although when I bought it I thought the price was a bit high, I now see the true value in the product. It has held up both in the quality itself and in that two years later my boys still play with it.

      We received this toy as a gift for our oldest son (now 3) when he was only a few months old. He has always loved it. It has three stages of play, one that plays the whole song, one that plays a part of a song, and one that plays just a note at a time. My son and his friends still play with this toy. As an infant he loved the music and lights, and was learning cause and effect. As a toddler he liked to carry it around and give out the flowers. And as an older toddler/preschooler he plays "songs" and dances to them. My youngest still plays with this toy. After over two years it still works as well as the day we received it - and that is after TONS of use.

      We bought this for our two year old and at first he really liked it, but really its just push a button and watch it go or move or light up depending on witch button you push. So it teaches cause & effect and as he was just starting to be mobile when we got this, he would push the button and crawl after it. So he loved it. After a year it is still in good shape and my boys do play with it, but mostly they like to push it around. It does seem to eat through batteries quickly if the kids push the buttons a lot, but overall it was worth the purchase price

      We have had this for over a year and both of my boys ages 1 & 3 love this toy. It is one of the most played with toys at my house. It has great colors, it is nice and big and easy to handle. My oldest loves to fly it around the house. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that the doors fall off REALLY easily. The positive is that the top & bottom doors easily pop back on. However the middle door has broken off of ours. My sons don't seem to care and play with it without the doors most days. I would recommend this and buy it again for sure.

      Although at first my son was interested in this product, as soon as he could roll he really never played with it again. Plus I am not sure how to clean out the water mat. I emptied the water and let it dry out as much as possible however when I stored it and went to use it again the inside of the water pack was moldy - with no way to clean it. I would not purchase this again.

      I bought this for my oldest son as a young toddler and have used for my youngest son as well. I love that my sons felt safe and comfortable in it, and I was comfortable with the product also. I also like that they were actually able to get wet and play in the water while using it. I have used other floats that kept them above the water, not the case with this float.. My sons loved splashing in the water. My only complaint is that the canopy is floppy and often I don't even use it because I can never seem to get it to be where I want it to. Overall I would buy this again - in fact I have I owned two.

      We have had this toy for over a year & my son still loves it. It has great colors and has lots of textures. It is still in great condition even after many cleanings and lots of playing. My son loved looking at it as in infant, playing with it as he got older, and still plays with it as a young toddler. Even my preschooler will play with it once in awhile, making it fly around the house. I would buy this again in a heartbeat. Definitely a great value.

      We have two of these, one for each of our boys - ages 1 & 3. They are in their bedrooms. My oldest has it next to his bed and loves to turn it on before bed and pick the color of the stars (there are three choices). Then we look for the moon together. He can't wait to have it on each night. My youngest has it on his dresser and it gives just enough light for him to fall asleep. Although we still use night lights in both of their rooms (it only stays on for a limited time) both of my boys enjoy them. I do wish I could plug it in to save on batteries (although I have had them almost 6 months and haven't had to replace them yet). I read that it looks best if you place it in the center of the room, but even though that's not really an option for us my boys like it anyway. I prop it up a little in my youngest sons room so it is on the wall & ceiling and he can better view it from his crib. Overall we love this & I would buy another one in a minute.

      Although this was purchased for my three year old, he really doesn't have much interest in it. My eighteen month old however loves it. It has buttons for basic shapes and sounds. He especially loves opening and closing it. The quality is great and the colors are bright - just right for a young toddler. My biggest issue with this product is that there is no on/off button or volume button and it seems a bit loud to us.

      We received this as a gift for our oldest son a year ago and the whole family loves it. My youngest is one and loves to float it in the tub and look at himself in the mirror - I frequently give it to him to play with while I change him. My oldest is three and he still loves it in the tub. He likes to use it to float other toys on. Even my husband has used it to shave in a pinch! My only complaint is that it is soft foam so it is easily bitten and my son who is teething apparently loves how it feels, but pieces can be bitten off pretty easily, but overall it is pretty durable.
