I bought this for my son's Christmas as I didn't want to pay a fortune for the teksta puppy when it didn't get good reviews. I thought I'd put batteries in it and try it out. After taking about 20 minutes to get the screw out for the batteries to go in (it looks like it's the wrong screw that's been glued in) I discovered how irritating this toy actually is. The "music" is far too loud and annoyed me so much in 5 seconds, and the thing just has a wee walk for a minute then makes a clicking sound like it's going to break. My only advice is DO NOT BUY! Not sure if I even want to give it to my son it is that bad!
