Bought this for my little sister who was desperate for it. Within 1 day it lost its ears 3 times, it scares her when it does the flip so much so it collected dust after just 1 day. Dont do it!!

Similar to the other reviewer, bought this at Argos for my daughter's Birthday.

She was delighted when she unwrapped it yesterday morning, and although it worked fine for the first day, the casing started to come apart after 1 hour and half a dozen backflips. I managed to pop the casing back into place, but that's not really the point is it!?!

I reckon it correctly backflipped about 50% of the time, the rest of the time failing to land on it's feet. Today it's developed the same problem as the other reviewer and made it halfway to the sitting position before the back legs jammed and it now just makes a grinding noise without doing anything. Tried new batteries, turning off and on again, nothing. The "troubleshooting" section of the instructions is equally useless, just suggesting new batteries. Feels like it was rushed into production and hasn't been properly tested.

It'll be going back to Argos for a refund. Avoid.

My little girl loved this when she got it for her birthday. It lasted less then two days before it started the sit and grind issue. After reading the reviews (which I wish I had to begin with) it will be going back for a full refund :(

Bought pink Teksta today from Argos, got it home put batteries in, turned dog on, and it just kept saying "Teksta, Teksta". I tried different batteries and now when turned on eyes flash continuously and it makes a Nrrgh Nrrgh noise and that's it, 3rd set of batteries ditto! Got to drive all the way back to exchange it I guess, very disappointed little girl. Advice if buying one for a present is TEST IT FIRST to avoid disappointment on the day.

Update: Returned it and got a replacement, soon the same thing happened, when in sitting mode going Nrrr Nrrr, instructions and google make no mention of what it means? It's supposed to exit sitting mode in 30s but doesn't. Did get it to flip out of that mode though and now seems to be working correctly-ish (I think?) The bone doesn't light up when he's feeding as it says it should? so may need to return again (if I can be bothered). clubit.tv Youtube video shows ipad app with many features (song dance/volume) NOT on actual ipad app (latest 1.01). Not really sure whether to recommend or not, now that it ALMOST works, but with all the teething problems cannot give over 2 stars.

Little girl played with it for 1 hour but now back in box and TV on so unsure of longevity, as not really cuddly or take-to-bed as Furbies were. If buying I'd get it from somewhere easy to return. I anticipate a lot of returns due to user error/confusion, now unsure if first one was actually broken or just stuck in sitting mode?

I totally agree with everybody else. This toy goes into sitting mode and then gets stuck there and makes a horrible noise like its about to self destruct! I have already taken one back to Argos thinking it was a one off but now will return the second one for a refund and not an exchange! when it is working at first, its not even that great and the ease with which you can get it to perform tasks as shown on the you tube video is exaggerated and it doesn't run nearly as smoothly. disappointing product for a whole £60.

I ordered this item from Amazon, as always very pleased with delivery etc. Wrapped for my daughters Birthday all excited about seeing her open it, packaging looked good, all items secure. Daughter opened her present was chuffed to bits she had received something she really wanted, got it out of the box, put new batteries in, noticed it looked scuffed, pink markings blended into the white, marks on the accessories, read all instructions tried to get 'Rosie' to complete actions, took ages to sit, seemed stuck in place kept beeping and whirling, re read instructions, watched you tube video, my daughters did not light up like it did on the video, did not move ears, would not budge from sitting position, it never walked or wagged tail, couldn't get t to flip or just to stand back up! I would strongly advise any parent to avoid this toy at all costs, it looks cheap and I can assure you does not work as advertised, along with other people who have bought this item I am very disappointed and am now trying to explain to my daughter why it has to be returned and why it will not be replaced! Now ......... where is Littlest Pet Shop?

Despite having to wait two weeks for Teksta to arrive, my daughter was delighted when we received it. Sadly, after the whole family trying to get it to work, its absolute rubbish! It doesn't do anything other than make awful noises. I am so glad I wasn't dealing with a very unhappy child on Christmas morning. Returned this item, bought another at Argos and I am returning that today as well.
