One of our twins screamed when we made him do tummy time. He got hooked on this toy by laying under it. As soon as he could reach the hanging paddles and figured out how to work it, it would also keep his interest while he was on his tummy. Both he and his brother loved the middle pull-down "paddle". They often played under it together. While the tunes did tend to get stuck in my head, none of them was too annoying or made me want to turn it off.
