This is a well made, fun yet educational, toy which is just the right size for toddlers hands to carry while they are on the move. There are 5 functions - active games, sing-along songs,dance party, sound effects and serenity mode controlled by easy to press buttons. The central paw shaped button is the sound effects button and the red,yellow, blue and green buttons have pictures showing the type of activity they provide. With 20 different songs available, two volume options and a clear and easy to understand voice, I was very impressed with the functionality of this music player. The reason it didn't get 5 stars is because, contrary to the clear display shown on the screen in the picture above, it is impossible to make out the figures so the toy really is limited to sound with no visual assistance. However, given the sturdiness of the player, the safe, rounded edges and the range of activities overall it is still well worth the money and has provided many hours of enjoyment for my young niece.
