Electronic toy cuts out after a few seconds

The toy in question is a Bright Starts Having A Ball Spin and Giggle Puppy. This toy has a spinning dish and plays a song as it goes. The purple component is the motor that powers the dish.

This toy cuts out every time after 2-3 seconds of being on. It plays the same introductory bit of its song, spins for 2 seconds then cuts out.

Is there anything I can tweak to make it work?

It always stops after the motor has been spinning for a few seconds.

I know this sounds super simple, but have you tried replacing the AA batteries with some known, good batteries?

It sounds like a power issue, honestly, so those batteries inside it may be worn down so they’re only providing enough juice for 2-3 seconds of use. I figured it was worth asking since I didn’t see you mention that you’d replaced the batteries in it already.
