No, that's not normal at all. It may be defective or need a new battery, so since you just bought it, I'd take it back and ask for another one -- make them test it first. A friend of mine just had the same experience with one she bought. She took it back and ask them to test the next one -- they tested all TEN they had in stock and none of them worked!
I bought mine several years ago, for my Parrotlet. She didn't play with it. When I got my GCC, I tried it with her, she didn't play with it either. When I brought Charley, my Hahns Macaw home, I tried it with him. HE LOVES IT!!! It's yakking away right now, as a matter of fact!
It only takes a little tap to make it sound, even tapping the cage will do it. Charley hangs upside down from it and swings like a monkey, so he gets plenty of sound out of it! He's on his THIRD battery since November! (new batteries still cheaper than a new toy) It's really a fun toy, IF your bird likes it!
