from review:

This is an enjoyable holiday item, and fun for whole family at a reasonable price! It has an ornament that you can either hang on the tree or stand on a table. There are 12 Christmas carols (non-vocal) that you can request, and there are 24 carols that auto play during the light show. (See photo for list of songs)
There is a 2-LED light shining down on the Maestro Mouse ornament. On the control box, you have options of Normal or Demo mode and a Volume control. Your setting options are:
(1)Voice Control: Simply say "Hello Mr Christmas" (he will hear you through the tiny microphone in the stand under the mouse) and he will prompt you for your request--Play a carol, Turn tree lights on, or you say "Good night Mr Christmas to turn the lights off.
(2)Musical Light Show: This setting will continuously play carols and your lights will dance to the music.
(3)Motion Activation: The mouse will "wake up" and ask for a request when a person walks within 5 feet of the ornament.
(4)Off
The instructions are easy to understand, and setup is quick. I would have like to have a little longer cord from receptacle to control box, though, it is 18" long. The cord from contol to ornament is a good length at 6 feet. The sound quality is good, and the witty little mouse 'understands' my voice commands easily. I like the idea that it does not have to be put on a tree, and I plan on placing the Maestro Mouse on my mantle connected to strings of lights!

We have the Mr. Christmas Voice Recognition Christmas Tree Ornament. We set it up this year and it was nice when it worked properly. Sometimes it couldn't recognize voice commands even if you stood directly in front of it. This was especially true when more than one person was speaking or if there was any additional background noise such as a TV, music, video game, etc. It also frequently would continue to stay on and play music even when you would want it to turn off.

Another issue we came across was it occasionally would get triggered by sounds / voices heard on the TV. This wouldn't be too bad if the only thing that happened was the lights would turn on. But it also begins to talk and even sing. So, we would eventually just pull the plug which defeats its purpose. Ultimately we disconnected it all together and went back to the wireless remotes that came with our Christmas tree / lights.

Hopefully this is not typical of this device. We would have returned it if it wasn't an early Christmas gift to our twins + 1.

This thing is the awesomest thing ever! First one I picked up never worked and had to be replaced with another but once we got it working the 8 year old niece hasnt stopped yelling at the tree for the last two days. It's not exactly the most high quality, robustly built ornament but for $10 it's got a nice novelty factor that old people and young people seem to like. Grandma likes it because her granddaughter likes it.
