Rated 2 out of 5Â by SluzFinest Scary Toy
So I got this toy for my son today and I regret it so bad. He screamed and cried his eyes out when it started laughing and the music played. I figured he was just in a bad mood. I tried it again later while he was all jolly and playing with his other toys and he cried and screamed again. He is 11 months old and I can't believe it. First time ever he did that with a toy. That's like me trying to shred bank statements again with my shredder. He is terrified of the shredder as well as this penguin. Don't waste your time. Sorry Fisherprice; but we still love your other toys.

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!

We bought this for our son thinking that since he could sit, it would be a great idea for him to have a toy that bounced back up at him while he played and batted at it.
Well, I'm sure it would have been a great idea if the penguin actually bounced back up! My 6 month old would bat it lightly and it would stay on the ground. And it says it's age appropriate at 36 months? Maybe we bought a dud - but we can't return it for a new one since we live 2 hours from the city where we purchased it. Total disappointment - save your cash.

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!
