    Comments about The Little Tikes Company Little Tikes DiscoverSounds® Shape, Sort & Scatter:

    I knew my daughter would love this because of the bright colors and lights and sounds, so we got it for her first birthday. I was right, she opened it and that's all she wants to play with. Except it doesn't work. It continuously says 'push the button to begin'. Every once in a while it will actually continue and do what it's supposed to. Disappointing and such a waste.

    Poorly made

    This product has potential to be a fun toy. If it worked. Unfortunately, I have one that has the problem others have reported--it doesn't recognize one of the shapes, and so it becomes impossible to play the games beyond simple shape sorting. I do expect better quality from Little Tikes. Very disappointing.

    Comments about The Little Tikes Company Little Tikes DiscoverSounds® Shape, Sort & Scatter:

    Same problems as below - batteries were of poor quality so unit did not function properly, lights just flickered, it made an irritating ticking sound and the base would not stay up. Had put it in the trash as was a gift so no receipt to return it - I fished it out (if you pardon the pun) and replaced the batteries after reading these comments.

    Still doesn't work properly though - red heart doesn't register when putting it through the correct hole so kind of makes the whole game pointless as it's impossible to complete it on sort or beat the clock mode. It's colourful and makes sounds though so it will keep my 9 month happy, but it's a poor quality product so as a result it doesn't do what it's supposed to do.

      After reading the rest of the reviews, I figured out the fix (thanks Brad's Mom!) My son LOVES this toy. He plays with it all the time. Not long ago, however, it stopped dropping the shapes out of the bottom, and would just talk and make the bubbly noise. I tried resetting it by removing the batteries and putting them back in, and that worked--at first. I replaced the batteries after reading these reviews, and that worked. We love the product!

      Brad's Mom is Spot On!! Replace the Batteries!!

          My review is very long in the hopes of being thorough. If you want the shortened version read Brad's Mom's review from 1/28/15. Her review is what solved my problem.

          My short version: If you think this isn't working just replace the batteries.

          My long version: My son received this as a birthday present for his 1st birthday. He played with it all.the.time. and by himself which was so nice! It didn't take long for him to figure out what to do and to push the button twice to get the shapes to drop. As I've said, he loved it. However, after exactly 1 month, it started to get finicky. When you push the button once it makes a bubbling sound. When it works, if you push it a second time the shapes drop. Well, all it would do was keep making the bubbling sound. It wouldn't drop the shapes. I'd turn the toy off and back on and that would work some times. Other times, it would work on it's own just fine. However, it's now to the point where he screams and gets so mad when he hears the bubbling because it means it's not working, which is all the time now. I loved this toy so much and was going to come on here after owning it for a week and tout how amazing it was. I'm glad I procrastinated because now I can tell you how it stops working after just a month of use. So disappointed because my son and I really enjoyed playing with it together and I love that it has 3 different settings so it could potentially challenge him as he grows....not anymore. Hopefully I can talk to Little Tikes and see if they'll do anything since my son got it as a gift.

          Update: I just got off the phone with Little Tikes customer service and told them what was happening. They were very friendly and helpful. They said with their products, sometimes if you take out the batteries and let it sit for a minute it will reset the toy and help. They suggested that but said that if it doesn't work, call them back and they will start an report and send us a replacement toy for free. I am so happy about this and with how much my son loves this toy and how easy and understanding customer service was I give this toy 5 stars after all.

          Update 5/20/15: Customer service was really great to work with and sent me a replacement in no time. Unfortunately the replacement started doing the same exact thing shortly after. I then put the two I now had away in a closet. Well, the other day I pulled them out and thought I'd see if other people were still having the problem or if a solution has been found. Here I found Brad's Mom's review. She had the exact same problem it sounded like so I did what she did and completely replaced the batteries instead of taking theirs out and putting them back in. Lo and behold it worked, on both toys!!

          Thank you for providing your review, Brad's mom. It was very helpful!

            I love this toy. We got this toy for my son's first Birthday and it has been awesome! I did have to replace the batteries that originally came with it after about a month of use,and after reading some of the other reviews I want to mention I choose to change the batteries because: it would not let the pieces fall and kept repeating "press the button to begin"(took me a day of thinking about it, but figured it had juice to talk but not to make the bottom move). Our son is almost 15 months now and he has done everything to it, including picking it up and throwing it. Boys will be boys. It still works great and I love the idea that this toy will grow with him while teaching shapes, colors and competition.

            I bought one month ago for grandchildren. After one visit it the bottom platform failed. I loved the toy and so did the child. However for the price it should have lasted longer.

            My daughter played with this toy at her cousins and loved it. I went out and bought her one and brought it home. The quieter of the 2 sound settings didn't work all together. The button she pushes just keeps saying to "press the button to begin". The bottom won't fall out we did get it to once then couldn't get it to go back up. We are very disappointed and she keeps trying to play with it I feel terrible it doesn't work like it should for her. Unfortunately I even messaged the company and received no response. I will not go out and buy another one for another$30 for a new one. Not to mention this is my second review not sure what happen to the first one but I copied and pasted this from the email little tikes auto sent me to confirm my review.

            My son received this toy for his birthday and fell in love with it. Unfortunately it lasted less than a month before it began to malfunction. The motor stopped working so when my son 'presses the button' it won't move and then it began to repeat itself. My only issue with this toy is the quality, which is HIGHLY DISAPPOINTING!

            Purchased this toy for a christmas present for my daughter. She opened it on yesterday and it does not work properly. The toy is suppose to tell you the colors and names of the shapes as you insert them. This particular one, tells you the wrong shape and colors once you put the toy in. Will be returning this toy.
