My daughter has this electronic toy turtle (given to her by my MIL, of course) that drives me crazy. The turtle has numbered buttons in different shapes and when you press them it says the number and the shape.
It also has a music button, when pressed it sings a song. Seems innocent enough right? Nooooo!
When the music button is pressed on that damn turtle, this lady who sounds like she just inhaled a tank of helium and drank too much expresso sings “Counting, counting, counting is such fun. Count with me, let’s start with number 1….”.
The speaking voice is equally obnoxious. I don’t know where these companies get the people to sing for their toys but the madness needs to stop! Ahem.
Guess which button my daughter likes to press over and over and over again. I’ll give you a hint…counting, counting…
I’ve tried to hide this toy* but really I just want to throw it out of the window. Actually I’d rather let a hammer say hello and have it count how many times it smashes this toy. Now that would be music to my ears.
*My hubby finds it amusing that this toy drives me crazy. When I hide it, he’ll find it and put it back in our daughter’s toy box. I think he would enjoy a serenade from this turtle sometime in the middle of the night.
