My baby got this for a Christmas gift. I had seen it in the store but I wasn't crazy about the sticker label with the ABC's and animals on it. However, someone else got it for her and as soon as I got it out of the box for her, she started spinning it on her own and laughing at it. She loves to play with this over and over again.
The age range is for 6 months and up. It encourages language, visual, and motor skills. It has 3 setting for ABC learning, animal sounds and music. It also has Volume control which is important to me. Its easy to spin and goes in either direction. There are black and white patterns on the sides for visual stimulation. It has 2 arrows that light up as it points to the letter / animal it is refering to. The songs are really cute and catchy. The sticker with the pictures on it are kind of flat and boring (to me) compared to other toys out there, however, my baby doesn't care she loves the pictures.
Even though I didn't personally buy this and hadn't cared for it when I saw it in the store, after seeing my daughter play and enjoy it, I'm glad someone got it for us. We would have been missing out on a great toy.
