Change batteries on 1998 Leap Frog Twist & Shout

I have a Leap Frog Twist and Shout Multiplication which is marked copyright in 1998. I cannot change the batteries. I have taken the left end of the device off, but come to a dead end before accessing batteries. There are two white buttons on the right end of the device (one approximately 1 " below the right corner of the screen and one approximately 1" above the right corner of the screen) but I cannot get these to release any part which will give me access to the batteries. Apparently the device was intended to have batteries changed since there are instructions as to battery type printed on the device.

I had a similar problem but with the model that only has 1 button. I fought with it sticking a screwdriver in the button and it wasn't coming off. Then I used a pencil and pushed the button down even farther and the whole top including rim came of as it was designed. It looks like they went through several designs before finally putting the battery compartment out in the open

    The 2001 LeapFrog Twist and Shout Division has the one button on the right side, and when pushed WAY in using the tip of a slender screwdriver released the entire end of the device, exposing the 1 screw to be loosened to release battery tray. Takes 3 1.5 V AA batteries.

I found on the two button twist and shout that you only really need to push in one button with a screw driver or something. It will come out pretty easily then.

I have found that using two phillips screw drivers, one on each white button at the same time, will automatically pop the top open. You can then un-do the screw holding the battery and replace.

:I thought it was going to be difficult also, but I handed to my boy, and he was able to take it apart no problem. What a pain in the **** though.

For me it was a two person job. I used two ink pens and pushed in the white buttons while the other person pulled on the large button on the top.

It is really hard to push in the little white buttons in on the sides i have been trying for 30 minutes. my hands hurt :(

The two white tabs need to be pushed completely in while the large button assembly is pulled straight out. the battery tray is then removed by removing the single screw that is visible after removing the large button assembly. takes 3 AA cells.

After reading the suggestions above, I used 2 screwdrivers to push the white buttons inward while holding the unit between my knees and with unit inverted, pulled upwards until I felt it move. Then I was able to pull the rest of the end off and replace the batteries. Like a previous poster indicated, I removed the other end and 2 pieces fell out. Unfortunately the 2 pieces that fell out I didn't see where they came from. So now the batteries were changed, but the unit doesn't work until I can figure out where these 2 pieces go. Horrible construction design and definitely needs a redesign. It would have also helped if the instruction manual indicated how to change the batteries.
