dd got a talking toy for christmas and it is horrible. the singing voice is so out of tune it hurts my ears. and it wasn*t even a cheap thing...I am considering complaining to vtech...

I thought the point was to make them as painful and annoying to adults as possible. THey're just fulfilling that. wink

YABU for having batteries in the toy

YABU Otherwise it'll just teach your DC to laugh at the amusia sufferers who try and sing to them later.

(Not really, yes they should be in tune...)

Which one is it?

DS has a couple of Vtech toys that are hopelessly out of tune- figure it makes me round better, so I don't mind that much!

sound better, even!

YANBU at all ! It is one of my pet hates, that toys sing out of tune. I have thrown out some toys of the dc's that assault my ears, with their out of tune drone. Vtech being the guilty culprits.

But I'd also say the same thing about some pop stars - especially Duffy's inability to hit a note right on.

Although I have a rotating mirror thingy that plays out of tune/out of time jazz which I'm rather fond of. Sounds like it's drunk.

Have you tried changing the batteries?

Have you tried losing the batteries?wink

I'd advocate a battery loss too. DD had numerous screechy noisy toys that the batteries ran out on long before they should. I used the excuse that I couldn't find the same size anywhere. For years. She was astonished when she came shopping with me years later that duracell is available.

yes I know, I will remove the batteries (when I can find the blardy screwdriver).
I just find it bad. if a parent/grandparend can only sing out of tune it*s all right. but if I pay good money (well the gp did) for a toy then I expect it to be of good quality. and that includes the quality of the singing.
