That toy.

Has your child ever had a toy they can't get enough of but most days it makes you want to pull your hair out? 
Yeah, meet that toy in our family.  The Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Learning Puppy.

We don't do a lot of battery operated toys in our house but we do have a few.  Teagan got this toy for Christmas and wasn't very interested in it until about a month and a half ago.  This one suddenly caught Teagan's eye and she hasn't let it go since.  Luckily, it just stays in the car.  We've designated one toy to stay in the car to make car rides easier since the binky is gone. Can I just say that one more time? The binky is GONE. Okay, anyway.  This toy sings and talks when you push the designated areas. The ears, paws, tummy and heart.  Teagan has learned how to manipulate the toy to do what she wants.  She has favorite songs that it sings and will peruse through all the songs until she gets back to the ones she wants.  She does this so often during our car rides to and from work/school that I find myself humming them throughout the day.  Trust me, I get strange looks when humming the dog's version of the ABC song while picking out peppers or grabbing a quart of milk. 
But, alas, this toy keeps car rides happy and Teagan will hum along and do the motions and it is the cutest thing.  Plus, I would rather hear the dog and Teagan laughing then have no dog and suffer through Teagan screaming from boredom in the car.
