First, some practical information. Elmo comes with four AA batteries. However, those are used for the in-store try-me features. You might want to get some spares before you give Elmo to someone for best results.
Elmo has two levels of volume. So, if the sound is too much or too little, fiddle around with it before you get disappointed.
Elmo moves, but he must be on the floor in order to move. If you pick Elmo up, he will stop moving. So, if Elmo won't move while you are holding it and shaking it and yelling at it and so forth - that is why. That is absolutely normal.
There are three buttons on Elmo's headphones. These are for three different musical modes. You didn't think they would sell a "Let's Dance" Elmo without music, did you?
Everything is color-coded. Press the rainbow button on the headphone to hear songs about colors. The music notes button plays three different versions of the "Elmo's World" song. The paw print button plays songs about animals. It's simple so that any child can figure it out once you show them.
As Elmo sings, he dances and the heart button on his chest lights up. So, you can play with Elmo even at night, in fact, that's a fun thing to do.
Pressing the heart button will cause Elmo to speak phrases, play the "Elmo's World" song, and make Elmo dance. So, it is not just the headphones that work.
