Totally awesome but very short life span
One of the best toys I've experienced until it stops working. It's really adorable and fun with a nice variety of songs and really cool features. One of little one's absolute favorite toys. Then he started acting funny- not finishing songs, stopping halfway through, repeating things, changing sequences abruptly, etc. We kept changing the batteries but that wasn't the problem and little one would always get upset when he didn't act right so we finally had to stash him away. Bought another one with the same results. He stopped working properly in a relatively short amount of time and with only gentle use. I'm still giving it four stars because no matter how brief, it was a truly awesome toy. I'm hoping an improved version is released sometime in the future.

Awesome! Love this thing
Holy cow. I cannot even convey how much my 16 month old son loves this thing. It sings several songs and is fairly animated. I've seen other posts on here talking about how theirs died after a week.
Well I can tell you one thing. BUY rechargeable batteries. They cost more, but you will need them. I get maybe a week out of batteries. Part of it is it seems like so much of this has motors. The head, mouth, arms, hands, and legs and even the feet move some. On top of that it runs a long time. Just when you think it might turn off it goes some more. This is my second one. I bought another for a family member since mine loved this so much.
I would definitely buy this again.

Extremely disappointed in this Elmo
I should have listened to other reviews, this Elmo is glitchy! Even with fresh batteries he won't sing anymore and my sons favorite part was when he would sing a song not talk! Extremely disappointed that I spent $50 on this glitchy thing! Do not buy unless you only want to hear him say sporadic sayings >:(

I am an Elmo collector....I have every Elmo and the limited editions ones also...This Elmo is very cute and it does what it says it does....I thought it would be a little bigger but hey what do you expect for around $25.00. I still love it the children will love it and anyone who see's him in action will love it also. Elmo plays the drums, the tambourine and sings with the mike in his hand and will tell you what he wants to do next. So cute! The only Con: Everything is recorded on Elmo and the music comes from elmo and not the instruments itself, and it looks unreal when you see him playing.....But I still Love Elmo!

We love it!
I'm not usually a fan of Sesame Street or toys that make a lot of noise, but I figured since my two-year old will dance to any kind of music he hears, that he would like this toy. Wow! I was so impressed! My son LOVES it! The songs are not annoying at all, really catchy and cute.
Now for the price. I know Elmo toys can get ridiculously expensive, but I found 2DayDeliver's price for this particular toy to be quite reasonable. I have seen it at many different popular stores anywhere from $55.00 to $89.00. 2DayDeliver was even cheaper than Wal-mart and so I ended up getting mine here. So if you can find it for around 50 bucks, grab it while it's available!
UPDATE! This toy is Bad ass Awesome! I don't even like Elmo and this toy is so much fun. I like playing with it just as much as my son does.

Lots of fun so far
Our 1 year old loves this toy so far (though it's only been three days). It makes him laugh and laugh. He even holds the microphone up to elmo's mouth. His dad plays Rockband on the xbox 360 often, so I think this version of elmo has an extra appeal for our son.
DOWNSIDE: it only 6 songs... pretty disappointing and annoying being the parent. I'm guessing someday he'll find only 6 songs predictible and boring too.
FOLLOW UP: Still likes it a lot at 21 months old. However, we don't play with it too often because the 6 songs get OLD. Changed it from 5 stars to 4 stars for that reason.

I'm so glad i was able to find this on amazon. Since this toy initally came out in 2011 i was a little skeptical. My son saw this on a youtube video review and has not stopped asking me to tell santa this is what he indefinitly wants for christmas. Right out of the box toy was in great shape and i cannot wait to see my sons face on christmas morning. I also purchased the interactive microphone too, i would recommed atleast to purchase one of the interactive toys to go with it.. make it a little more awesome.. lol

Let's Rock Elmo a WINNER!!!
This is a wonderful item for the younger(toddler) connoisseur of music. (I'm going all by what my niece told me. They live across the country from me) I actually bought it for my great-nephew's first birthday(adult supervised), he love dancing. But his two year-old sister Olivia, also was in the grove with Elmo(BIG FAN!!!)
My niece Ana told me they both love "Let's Rock Elmo", Olivia pushes the button, then Oli and Landon start a'shakin to da'groove. They both fight over who gets to play the drum to the music. Ana said they play with Elmo for hours, both would give "Let's Rock Elmo" two thumbs up.
If your toddler loves music and dancing, this is perfect. A+++

Really impressive, fun toy
We are blown away with the articulation of movement this toy has. He really points at the kids and holds the mike toward them when he wants them to sing. The movements are every bit as impressive as the animatronics on the rides at Disney, and Elmo doesn't fall over when he dances, even if he's standing on carpet, which surprised me. You can also really hear a noise when his hand strikes the drum head, not just the prerecorded noise. We're really impressed with how well the details were addressed. Needless to say our kids absolutely LOVE this toy. We bought Elmo and all the accessories (keyboard, microphone, and guitar). The kids love playing with the accessories independently as much as playing with Elmo himself. We have 11 month old triplets, and right now they like to watch Elmo dance and bang away on the keyboard and guitar. We love that as they grow and develop they'll understand more and more of what this amazing toy does and we know we'll be playing with it for a good long time in our house.
