'Basic' mode would help
on 30 April 2016
Well, it works very well, but is far too chatty for it's own/my daughter's good.
Press '1' and instead of just saying "One" it burbles on about finding one green lettuce, or starts a song, or. etc., which means if you want to press the buttons in sequence (for counting) you either need to be quick, or put up with loads of random babble between each number.
And then the 'game' does not prompt for, say, raspberries, or 8 raspberries, but "eight dark pink raspberries". Every single time. This is far too boring and long a question for my daughter, who has already moved on to pressing the next button by the time it says 'pink'.
So, I play with it with sound off, for the daughter, and we'll hold on to it for my son, and see if it engages him better. Oh well. the xylophone bit is fun.
