It just needs light! (easy fix for the biggest issue)
I got this book for my niece for Christmas because my husband and I live far away and we want her to have something to remember us by. We had some difficulty recording (as I have heard a few people say) and I figured out the trick. The holes close to the spine measure light and use that to determine what page you are on. Our bedroom is poorly lit but when we went into the dining room we had no problem recording and playing back the recording.
My 2 and a half year old niece also has no problem playing the book. My sister has informed me that she loves it and opens it on her own and talks to us and blows kisses at the end of the book. Great way to keep close to kiddos who aren't so near.

Don't bother with this one.
I was so excited when I found this recordable book. What a wonderful gift for our grandchild who lives in another state. However, I am totally dissatisfied it. It skips pages and plays the recording for another page. I've tried re-recording a few times.... still no better.

DON'T BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!!
I am so disappointed with this book. I bought it on line before Christmas, but didn't have time to record it then...decided to wait for my grandson's January birthday when I would have "more time" to devote to it. I spent approx 2 hours trying to get it to record properly. It would record on wrong pages; not let you have the option to record on other pages; first pages in the book did not work AT ALL!! Desperate, I called the store to see if they had any in stock. They had one..got it but had to pay more for it. Got it home...SAME PROBLEM!!! I have probably spent close to 4 hours trying to get ONE of these two books to record...with no luck. A couple pages did ok, but it's worthless if the whole book doesn't work. I tried to record it in different rooms, flat on a table, with adequate light...as it said to do. I plan to return the one I bought in the store, but I am screwed with the one I bought on line.
GOOD IN THEORY....IF IT WORKED....BUT IT DIDN'T. SOOOOOOOOO DISAPPOINTED. Bad thing is that I ordered the Toy Story one for my other grandson...haven't done it yet and am AFRAID TO TRY!!!!! So frustrating! Elmo would have been so cute if it had worked properly.
