    Pros: It is durable, and it looks like Elmo.
    Cons: Difficult for a child to use

    Summary: My husband bought this toy for my son when my son was about a year and a half. My son is now nearly three and the toy is never played with. It doesn't switch roles very well unless the batteries are brand new. Also, you have to play with it a lot to ... read more

    Pros: Can be an entertaining toy for toddlers
    Cons: Hard to position properly, ultimately more frustrating than useful

    Summary: Woe is me to malign any cute, furry creature, but this toy severely fails the "fun" and "educational" tests. When we purchased this Elmo for our twin daughters(who happen to LOVE Mr. Elmo), they did not get how to position the arms and legs to get him ... read more

    Pros: Cute, some variety, encourages imagination
    Cons: Hard to make work, unbalanced

    Summary: In general, I am not crazy about Elmo. I'll agree he is one of the cuter Sesame Street characters, but after surviving 4 (the baby is too young still) kids going through varying degrees of Elmo insanity there are days when I wish I had barred him from ... read more

    Cons: Frustrating trying to make this thing work

    Summary: This toy has already been returned to the store and I was interested to find out that several others had also been returned. Bad batch? Don't think so. As an adult, I could not make Elmo work. The "limbs" were stiff and I could not get it into the ... read more
