Our children loved this toy! It can be played with in a variety of formats. In the classical music session when you press each number it will play a different melody. It even tells the name of the composer before it begins the melody. In number mode it sings a cute song about the animals pictured. My kids loved this when they were babies and toddlers. We used it in the stroller (it can attach) and it has a handle so they can carry it around with them. It is also nice in the car. My only wish is that it were easier to clean as ours got dirty over the years (we have 2 kids - 3 years apart) and it was well loved. I gifted this to my niece since ours was too worn to pass down and she loves it as much as my kids did. It is soft and has different items on it to keep a busy baby occupied even without the music. Would work well in the car seat or grocery cart as well. Definitely a fun, must have toy.
