Hi, We received a similar set from the character Miffy and bought this Hello Kitty set for a friend. Both suffer from the same problem i.e. making toys is extremely difficult. On the other hand, the kids love them! The play over and over again. We have them for 4 years now (we have a 2 year old and a 4 year old). Both love to have them in the bath. They still look like new and they love putting the toy in the rings. It's all about fitting and floating and drowning them...They might not really make a tune (they sort of create a weird high whistle) but the imagination of my kids runs wild with these and they would be very upset if I took them away. It's the only bath toy that has survived 4 years - all the others went yellow, got mildew or became very dirty or faded. For that alone it deserves more stars than it has had till now.
