Ratings and Reviews
I’ve tried scanning the tags on the gardening foot finder & wrist rattle set multiple times. I even tried the barcode too. Nothing will scan. I don’t mind manually searching for the toy and adding it that way, but there is no capability to do it any way but scanning the product icon. I’m sure once I can get it to scan the app will be great and exactly as expected, but right now it’s useless.
