Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed My almost three year old son received this flashlight as a Christmas present, and we, like other reviewers, tried several different batteries before realizing we were not going to be able to get it to work. It's very hard to explain to a two year old why their new toy doesn't work. I personally feel disappointed in the quality of this toy, as we have purchased many Melissa and Doug toys for our son over the past three years and our family has come to recognize the extraordinary quality of their products, therefore, didn't hesitate to purchase this toy flashlight for him, which ultimately turned out to be a complete waste of money and disappointment to all.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute but tricky We got this as a gift from a friend I thought it was very cute and easy for my little one to hold. I had an issue trying to get the batteries changed and couldn't find any information on how to. After trying everything I found a small screw on the side of the ring and unscrewed it. After that I pushed down on tab while turning the top and was able to unscrew the light and change the batteries. I used Duracell batteries and it worked without a problem. I hope this will help other people because I saw this question asked a lot.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Flickers First off, before I read these reviews, one of my favorite aspects of this flashlight was the child-proof battery compartment. But apparently I’m the only one! Lol. Cheaper “adult” flashlights often pop open if dropped, so it’s nice to have no worries about leaving this alone with my 3 year old. He’s definitely not going to get the batteries out! Anyway, I was still very disappointed that after having this for only a few weeks, the flashlight began having issues flickering. Very disappointing as I am used to high quality products from M&D.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Batteries How do you change the batteries in this toy. It is very frustrating. And to add to it, it is more frustrating to me that I see numerous people have asked the same question and instead of just answering it so others may have their questions your response is to have them call you, like it's some kind of trade secret. Disappointing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Battery issues like everyone else Why can't Melissa & Doug post how to install the batteries? Why is a child's toy so difficult to use? And don't ask me to call you because I won't. This information should be easily available.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love these but frustrating technical issues! I got all 3 of my kids one of these flashlights and they LOVE them, but unfortunately two out of three were duds. One never worked and I wasted an hour trying all different batteries and strategies for twisting and screwing on the top. The other one flickers on and off so the kids now throw it and bang it on the wall to get it on. Ugh! M&D - is there a warranty on these? My kids want me to order replacements but I'm reluctant unless it's got a quality guarantee. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from T This was a perfect gift for my grandson who is three years old. He was so excited when he received it. Was right size for him, easy to get in and out of. Other items I phrased for him was great, plays with them al the time. I have to tell you that your staff in both purchases were so helpful and patient as I am a senior with very little knowledge of computers.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cute but frustrating This is really cute but changing the batteries can is ridiculously difficult. I understand the need for battery safety, but two screws and a push tab that has to be depressed with one hand while turning the top is over kill. Not to mention that the push tab is very difficult to press. For a grandma with arthritis, it nearly impossible.
