I bought this product to have for Thanksgiving. Upon opening the packaging I found there were no instructions. After about fifteen minutes of messing around with it, I decided the battery must be dead. Without instructions, I could not see where the battery was or how to change it. After almost breaking it, I finally found how to open the bottom of it to change out the battery. After that, all was good and I'm glad I didn't spend more. I didn't mean for this to sound negative, I really am glad I bought it.
