Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great toy, cheap battery We received this toy when our baby was a newborn and she's loved it from then until now (11months). I agree with other reviews that it's disappointing that there's no way to change the battery. Also it strange that it says to not put it in the trash can but gives no other instructions for how to properly dispose of it. I would highly recommend this toy, but the manufacturers need to find a way so we can change the battery. Ours lasted about 6 months. Gave it a break, and then it would work 1.5 tugs but that was it for these last 5 months. My daughter still tries to tug it and looks sad it doesn't play anymore

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Toy plays fun tunes and surprised us after a year The tug giraffe has been with us for our son's first year. It was a hand-me-down from his cousin. He became good at pulling the feet ring and triggering the song. We, and latterly he used it so much that we could always anticipate the next song and hum along with it. The odd surprise is that now it started playing a couple of new songs, and it really likes one of them in particular, playing it consecutively a few times. We were very shocked, because when we sang along that first time, we were completely wrong. The little boy was a bit shocked, but likely not because of the change in repertoire but from all our laughter!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! We have had a few of these from bright starts... They were called a little something different, but they were all the same thing. A music pull toy with music that wasn't tingy and annoying compared to every other brand of this type of toy on the market. We had a lion, an elephant, and a different elephant, and not we have both the monkey and elephant of these new tug tunes, and LOVE them. Our kids have always been drawn to these, and preferred these to any other toys. We LOVE them, and when we couldn't find them for a couple years, were bummed when we had another baby on the way, but now they are back and just as great as ever. I do wish the music was like the old tug tunes (the actual songs themselves), but love that it's real music not the really high pitched tingy sound.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Amazing toy but with a downside This toy is amazing. My son loves the elephant but the downside is the battery died within 2 months with barely any use and you can't change the battery. If they made it where you can change the battery it would be the best.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth buying I just bought my son his second Tug Tunes toy. Miles is 7 months old and has enjoyed his Tug Tune since he first discovered it at 3 months. However, there are a few downsides. You can't change the battery and it only lasted for about 2 months. Also, he has to pull on it pretty hard to get it to play music. I recommend the tug be a little more sensitive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from battery died quickly My daughter received the tug and tunes monkey as a gift she absolutely loves it but it has stopped playing the music we have only had it for a few months. Wish the battery lasted longer. She loves this toy so much and sad to see it not last very long.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No battery life We bought the monkey tug tunes for our baby and unfortunately after only 2 months of use, the battery died. Our little one absolutely lit up when pulling the handle made the music play! Very disappointing purchase but would love a replacement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good toy with little mistake This monkey is my daughter's favourite toy. It has a big fault, that we can't change the battery. The battery is now down. If you have any idea, how we can change the battery, my doughter would be so happy.
