My 6 year old daughter loves Littlest Pet Shop toys. So I naturally thought that she would love this too! And I was right, not just her, but my 8 year old son also likes it too! Every child has different taste and preference for toys, so your child might not enjoy the toy as my kids did. But consider the following:
1. The toy is solidly built. The plastic is thick and strong, and it doesn't feel cheap. It will withstand normal wear & tear by the kids.
2. The toy plays music and dances by itself, when you press his nose. The tune is very catchy and the lights flash on his head. The head, ears, arms, and body move according to the music. The movements are not wide, but enough to be interesting.
3. The toy can be also hooked up to your music player (iPod, mp3, CD, or computer) by a cable provided, and it plays the music and the toy dances, flashes lights, and makes sound according to the music or song being played.
4. The toy's speaker quality is average. But this is to be expected, because it is a toy for kids and not for adults. While the sound quality (due to speaker) is average, it is nevertheless acceptable for kids. If sound quality matters to you, then you should consider other toys.
All in all, it is a very good toy. My kids like it. If your kids like music and like to see toys dance, then consider this inexpensive toy.
