Bought Alfie for my daughter when she was 2 months, she's now 4months. She has liked him from the start. I dangled him from her playgym and pushed the buttons for her, now she can almost do it herself, but likes chewing on his feet.
It's good that it shuts off by itself after giving you another reminder that it's on but could do with it being on a few minutes longer so I can at least make a cuppa! You switch it on, press a button for a tune or counting etc, if you don't press anything else it sings again before eventually saying "bye-bye"
We have a vtech soft singing phone which has a proper on/off switch and sort of goes to standby when not pressed for a while, but once you press it again comes back on. It would be better if it was like that.
Otherwise a very chirpy and educational toy, not too loud either.
