    Don't buy this overpriced toy unless you have Apple products that the app can run on, Android had a broken unsupported app. Overpriced for what you get. Story is below. So I've been eyeballing Edwin the Duck for my two year old for quite a while, got a great deal on it, was happy with everything when I got it home, she loved it so I figure let's get him set up on her Samsung tablet so she can really have some fun with him. Load up the tablet which runs on OS 4.4.2 which is supported according to the manufactures website, download his app, connect him via Bluetooth and then the issue starts, for some reason it can't detect him so I keep trying, it's just not working. I figure let me try on my Moto G4 which runs Android 6.0.1, same issue so I start looking up reviews and apparently this has been an ongoing issue with Android devices and it seems the makers of Edwin just aren't too worried about it considering how well the iPhone/iPad version of the app runs and is supported compared to the obviously not working Android version. From what I read it barely had any activities or songs on it whereas the iPhone/iPad app has new activities being added all the time. Contacted their support email, got a canned message back, decided it was better to just return Edwin and find a product that actually works as advertised. I wouldn't waste my time either way, company has barely there support which doesn't bode well if there are other issues beyond what I experienced.

    Edwin has been apart of our family for about a week now. He has quickly become the toy that everyone wants to hold and play along with. The kids have memorized the songs and stories and are anxious for more. Edwin even maintained attention for my 9 yr old. I was totally not expecting that! Edwin is much more than a rubber duck, though like most rubber ducks, he can in fact, play in the bath! So neat. My husband and I have both used Edwin has a bluetooth speaker for our music in the bathroom & shower as well as the kids enjoying playing with him during their tub times. Edwin's coolest features, in my opinion is his interactive motions with the smartphone/tablet and the duck. My kids were able to manipulate the duck with prompts on the screen and those translated into the app. So thrilling and rewarding! My kids (2,5,7,9) all have played with Edwin in various capacities and thorougly enjoyed him. We are all anxious to see when they come out with more stories and songs to love! I would most certainly recommend him to a family looking for a unique spin on digital learning tools.

    Fun for 3 and 5 year olds

    We got Edwin thinking he would be fun for my 3 year old to play with because she loves rubber duckies and music and is learning her shapes. I didn’t expect my 5 year old to fall in love with him, but she absolutely adores him. We’ve only had him for a few days, and she has already learned some songs, uses the app to play with my 3 year old and teach her shapes, and listens to the stories at night. She also loves having him play music at bath time and used him as a night light last night. We rarely eat out because we find it not worth wrangling our very active children, but a lunch out went well today with Edwin reading stories from my phone. For anyone considering him for an older child, my kindergartener loves him as much or more than my 3 year old (my 9 year old was only mildly interested however).

    I purchased this item online to be picked up in store. When I picked it up from the store, the box was rather beat up but I didn’t think much of it. I got home and took it out only to realize that this was a used and returned product when I thought I was getting an all new product. I took the box out of the bag and immediately the bottom fell out along with all of the contents. Id like to give a more helpful review but I haven’t even used this product and plan on returning it based on everything mentioned above. That’s the last time I buy online first, granted a should’ve checked before completing my pick up transaction in store. I expect more from you Best Buy! It should say open box if in fact it was previously opened.

    To enjoy this duck with your child you need a device with iOS on it. There are apps on the Android but only one of them works. If you have a Windows phone (like I do) there are no apps. You need an iPhone to take advantage of playing your own music. Otherwise you are mostly stuck with the light up feature and quacking with tapping the side of the duck. With android you can still make the duck play some sounds and use a few features but it feels watered down compared to the potential this product has. My son still loves it so that is the important part. I almost returned it, but he likes it so I'm keeping it. I'd recommend it to a friend but only if they have an Apple device to use it fully.

    I bought the Edwin the duck from bestbuy, Alpharetta, GA, item stopped working in a month, I contacted Edwin technical support online as they have not provided the contact number, no response from them, I contacted bestbuy technical over phone, they asked me to come to store with the item, after keeping me wait for 2 hrs at the Alpharetta Best Buy store, they said they can't help. Looks like bustbuy technical staff is seeing the item for the first time they have no clue how to switch on the Edwin the Duck, how can we expect them to repair. They asked me contact the Edwin the duck tech support, Overall my experience with Bestbuy and the Edwin the duck is worst.

    This would be a good product for a typical child. While reading the reviews it sounded like a good toy for my son (8, autistic, downs). After bringing it home to him we found out it requires a lot more than he is capable of and ties up a tablet almost exclusively to him (which he can't do very well). I should say that there are in-app-purchases too. Just an fyi. Bottom line: if it's going to a typical child that can hold a tablet/phone to interact responsibly it's probably a good buy. It just wasn't what we thought it would be.

    The product is well designed and quality is great. I got it for my son and BestBuy had a great discount during ThanksGiving. The best part of this product is you can always play the music/songs that your kid likes using mobile app. Which works great most of the time. I had issues with the PreSchool app which sometimes doesn't find the Edwin. I switch on the low light and play the template sound which helps my son to go to sleep. I also use it for checking the temperature of the water before putting my son in bath tub. The battery last almost 12-14 hours, I keep the music on for entire night. Sometime in night I switch on the low light to see he is ok in crib.
