She let the batteries die when her son was a baby and never replaced them because it was so annoying. It now has batteries again for when she babysits my daughter. It gets locked in the closet so nobody plays with it unless the baby is there. Reply Jill September 21, 2011 - 5:29 pm I swear the batteries in this one were long dead before we put it in the attic for a year and a half, but it revived itself for a few days, and Leyna fell entranced by it’s evil spell. So we had to put new batteries in it. Reply Lucy September 21, 2011 - 4:41 pm Oh, that thing… My husband’s aunt gave our daughter one, and she’s figured out the exact combo of things to press just to get it to do the songs. She doesn’t care about anything else, but loves the songs. I, however, somehow still can’t get “I love you. Come give me a hug” out of my head. It follows me throughout the day. Augh. Reply Megyn September 21, 2011 - 4:45 pm Yep, precisely why we give those sorts of toys to relatives to have at their houses. Keegan had the VTech crawl ball…now at my sister’s house. We have very few battery operated toys, but a lot of noise makers (drum set, drums, keyboard, etc.). Not sure which is worse musical instruments or battery-operated annoyances? Reply Jill September 21, 2011 - 5:29 pm Yeah… at least the battery operated ones you can remove the batteries?? Reply Monica September 21, 2011 - 4:49 pm Oooh I love this puppy. Ours is possessed though too. He used to come on in the middle of the night & start talking. Scared the crap out of me. We have a thomas flashlight that steams or whatever it is it’s doing.. it will go off ALL NIGHT LONG. Usually it starts just as I fall asleep. Reply Jill September 21, 2011 - 5:30 pm Why do these things come alive at night?! We have a Melissa & Doug sounds puzzle that makes an ambulance noise randomly at night. That’s super comforting. Reply Monica September 21, 2011 - 6:31 pm Lol you’re telling me. I live in my Grandparents old house. My boys room is their old room. Both Grandparents are gone now… so you know, yeah.. real comforting when it happens at 3am. To top it off my toddler was sleeping in my room not long ago (on the floor w/ his mattress) and wakes me up in the middle of the night saying “Whats that Mommy?” pointing to the corner in the dark. So one little sound from one of these toys you can only imagine my response LOL. Reply Rachel September 23, 2011 - 4:40 am We have the train puzzle that goes off anytime you turn off the light. Terrifying. Reply Brie September 21, 2011 - 4:49 pm We have that one. My 21 month loves the music (specifically Heads, Shoulder, Knees, and Toes). I can’t wait until my 6 month old starts to play with it. Reply Brittany W September 21, 2011 - 4:59 pm We had one of these given to us. But after my daughter played with it for the first time and it sent her in to uncontrollable tears each time it sang, it went to the trash. Definitely am with ya on it being possessed! Reply Ginger September 21, 2011 - 5:04 pm Oh, the possessed puppy. That will randomly go off in the middle of the night. And give me heart attacks. “I Looooove YOU” at 2am from the depths of the toy chest is creepy as hell. Reply Monica September 21, 2011 - 6:33 pm Haha! That’s what mine did. Hilarious. Reply Eileen @ Bringing Up Bronwyn September 21, 2011 - 6:24 pm “It’s LEARRRNNNNING Time!” Reply Charli September 21, 2011 - 7:19 pm I have absolutely no idea where on earth my daughter’s went, but I was soooo thankful when it disappeared. It would get left in the car while I was alone, driving, it would suddenly yell “IT’S LEARNING TIME!” And I would have a stroke every time. … no real off switch. no volume control. buttons that go off if you look at them. This was honestly the toy from hell. Reply MomEinstein September 21, 2011 - 7:30 pm I thought mine was the only one. I was sound asleep one night when the monitor woke me up. What did the demon puppy say? “Peek-a-boo, I see you!” AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Reply mrs. knip September 21, 2011 - 9:37 pm OMG. Oh. Oh. Oh that THING. I had it and a few other “older” toys behind our rocker from before she was born. One night a few months ago I was rocking E to sleep. In the dark. I hear, “Peek-A-Boo I SEE YOU.” Needless to say the baby woke up when her mom screamed FUUUUUUUCK at the top of her lungs. Reply Jennifer @ Also Known As the Wife September 21, 2011 - 9:59 pm I know which toy would be banished to the back of the closet sans batteries if Sophia ever receives it. All this talk about possessed toys will have me hiding under the blankets tonight. I’m a giant wuss. Reply E September 21, 2011 - 11:31 pm At least some of you get a “Peek-A-Boo” before the “I See You!” part. I swear ours just says, “I see you.” I call it the creepy dog. Sadly, my second looooooooves it. Reply Jenny B September 22, 2011 - 12:47 am There is nothing I can say about this toy that has not already been said. Ours does it’s talking in the car. I keep it in there where, presumably, it talks to itself at night. Reply Krista from The Playdate Crashers September 22, 2011 - 8:11 am *Shudders* Creepy puppy Woke us all up in the middle of the night last week. Thaaaanks puppy! Reply Mama G September 22, 2011 - 12:44 pm We have My Pal Violet – who I would imagine is quite similar. My husband wants to hit it with a baseball bat. “I’d like a MONKEY please! It’s my faaaavorite animal…” Reply Jamie September 22, 2011 - 1:18 pm We have Violet too. “I love you, Austen” at 3 am is rather terrifying. Reply Jen September 22, 2011 - 4:37 pm That thing IS posessed! The middle of one night when G was about 9 months, I heard giggling over the baby monitor. I ran into the nursery completely freaked out that someone was in the house. No intruder, just that damn puppy entertaining itself in the dark. I removed the batteries in a cold sweat. Reply Michelle B September 22, 2011 - 9:57 pm Jack had this toy as well. For some reason, he didn’t really get into it until after he was 2….lol. I didn’t mind the toy, but agree that they are possessed. His to would go off randomly. It would be in the toy box and go off. So it’s like something creepy moved a toy that in turn hit the puppy. I just tell my self that Toy Story is true and our toys come alive. 🙂 Reply Rachel September 23, 2011 - 4:42 am So true. Ours tends to blurt out “I can see you!” five minutes after anyone last touched it. We’d get rid of it, but I think it would just anger it. I’m certain it would come back and attack us. Reply jamie mcmillan September 23, 2011 - 4:48 am We have a LeapFrog Scout and it says “I love you…Miles” but you have to picture the I love you part in a childish voice and Miles in a creepishly deep voice. Baby toys that say I love you are way creepy! Reply Mommy Points September 23, 2011 - 9:08 am Oh my, we actually ended up with three of those crazy puppies……and one of them speaks Spanish (it was buy one get one at Toys R Us and my mom decided we needed a Spanish version??).
