I got one of the newest Elmo Live dolls and have to say it is one of the funniest and down-right annoying toys ever! it does the dancing and singing thing like on the commercials. But I can't put up with that voice for too long - makes my hair hurt!! It scared the heck out of my dogs....they barked, growled and gave me the stink-eye for letting something like that into their house. The chickens took one look and just ignored it, except for my older Cochin hen who clucked and fluffed her feathers.
