That is scarry, becuase I have the first one pictured. I thought it was the neatest thing and had to get it back in 2005 with my 2nd son and just got it out for my 3rd baby to play with and now I have to take it away. That sucks, because it has the greatest sound to it. I wonder what the replacement toy will be!
