We received this as a gift, mostly because we are Pgh Pens fans, however the baby (2 months old) really likes it. She likes the sounds, and will smile if she hears someone play with it, even from across the room. Volume for us is good, soft enough that it is not annoying, and loud enough that she can hear it. Even if the sound is off, she likes to look at the face of the toy. She often sits on someone's lap and kicks (or we help her kick it) to move it. We have never had a problem with it not bouncing back, and the batteries have lasted over a month (and still going strong). Relatives who visit enjoy playing with the toy. Great gift!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Countrygal86 Died after a few uses (and it wasn't the battery)
First off I just wanted to say how much my 10 month old niece loved the toy. Unfortunately after a few uses it died. We changed the batteries and it still won't turn on. The penguin wasn't abused either to where we could have broke something. She loved bopping it around and it made her smile. I would try to take it back but we had it a few months so I don't think we will be able to. To unfortunately I'm buying her another one in hopes of it not dying because I can't put a price on my nieces smile

I couldn't wait to buy Bat and Wobble Penguin for my 8 month old grandaughter a few months ago. Who doesn't love a penguin? And the rock- back- and -forth motion appeals to kids, right? WRONG! At least in our case, the penguin scared the life out of our little one! She feared the penguin coming back at her, she disliked the voice saying "Wahooooo!" Poor penguin hides in our closet now, unused and lonely. I bring him out now and then, sound turned off, with a friendly voice(mine!) All to no avail. Even at 13 months, baby screams at the sight of him and runs out of the room, sobbing.Penguin will never see the light of day, unless he ends up in a Garage Sale!

It is a great toy for tommy time. It is even better when they are sitting up and crawling. this toy was given to my son for his first birthday (he was not walking yet) and he loved it. I only wished I had it before. Once he started learning how to walk he wanted to pick the toy up and walk with it but it was to heavy and he only got frustrated with it. Now my son is a confident walker and my son (15 months) and my daughter (3 yrs) still use this toy but now they also kick it. If it can handle my ruff and tumble twosome I would recommend this toy. Only bad fall make sure to turn it off when not using because if not you will be changing the batteries a lot faster.
