I purchased this for my granddaughter; but after trying it out, I'm going to return it. I've never heard a music doll play this loud. Perhaps it would be OK if it were strictly a play toy, but this is a "bedtime bear" that purportedly "will help your lilttle one fall asleep." This bear would not only NOT help my child sleep, it would probably give her nightmares. I would not recommend this for any child.
