Things We Did Not Like About Gidget
Well, this talking plush buddy doesn’t have any real shortcomings. However because she needs 3 x LR44 button batteries (supplied) there is a choking hazard warning on Amazon.

One prospective purchaser asked if the batteries holder was sealed with securing screws. And the answer is Yes.

Provided you exercise normal safety precautions and screw the batteries shut it is relatively OK. Just be aware of the choking risk for children aged less than 3 years old.

Another reviewer said that the tilt option did not work. Only the squeeze option worked. A tip from one reader about Max (another character) said there is a black lever under a velcro seal on the his stomach which needs to be moved from ‘O’ to ‘I’ to turn it on. This may also be an option for Gidget.
