Used wrong batteries now it doesn't work (is it broken?)

Okay so heres the story

i just bought a toy (sonic Screwdriver from doctor who) from ebay, It was a bit of a mess as i had to ship it to the uk and then to Norway.

However i got it and the batteries were flat, so i took them to a store to ask for some of the sam kind, however they must have given me the wrong type, so when i put them in it worked for like a minute and it got really hot and stopped working, i went to a watch store and asked them and they gave me the right batteries, but when i put them in it wont work.

So i guess that when the batteries got hot they must have ruined something... Does anyone know about this sorta thing? Can i fix it?

What is the part number of the battery that was in it and what is the part number of the "wrong" battery that got hot?
