Did anyone else purchase the Dora Window Surprises Dollhouse and get disasppointed by how fast the batteries die in it?

We bought this for our daughter for Christmas and it went through 8 AA batteries in less than 24 hours! Crazy!

  • I checked some reviews late last night and found that the biggest complaint was that it was 'too expensive for what you get' (What do they expect the name 'Dora' is on it?) Anyway, no one mentioned battery issues so I will be interested to see what you find out. (especially since we have the same house!)

  • Yeah, it's the one with the seasons. I mean, it's not like we're using cheap batteries either. We've been using Duracell and Energizer and it's just drained them! We may contact them and see what they say.

  • I'll get my husband to call them tonight because they will probably just irritate me if I call them and try to talk to them. People can be so snooty.
