Q & As

John Lewis Bathtime Whale 2 5 4 4
Didn't work :( According to instructions the Item purported to come with batteries and there was a plastic tab to pull as if to activate the batteries- I pulled this and nothing. Finally got round to investigating the situation with the batteries (it took some time as it needs to be unscrewed with a screwdriver and was not the first thing on my to do list each day) only to find there were no batteries. I put brand new batteries in it and put it in the bath and still nothing. Very disappointing- especially as it was one of the only gifts we bought for my daughter's first birthday. 07 September 2014
Bath time toy I have not seen the whale in operation yet, but I know that it is being used at bath time. It is doing everything that I hoped it would, the boy is one year old and is happy sharing his bath and playing with his new friend. 08 July 2014
Potentially dangerous This only worked briefly. Despite the battery compartment having been tightly sealed - when I tried to change the batteries for the first time - the compartment had leaked water and I suffered an unpleasant burn to my finger from the water damaged, leaking batteries. 22 June 2014
Not a good buy :-( I bought this for my sons 3rd birthday and it only lasted one week with the supplied batteries and then only lasted another two weeks on new batteries. Got fed up changing the fiddly batteries over in the end and had to throw out sadly :-( but when it worked my little boy loved it! :) 25 February 2014
