This review is from: Fisher-Price Sesame Street Elmo?s Sing n? Giggle Microphone (Toy)
I first saw this toy in a store while casually shopping ahead for my son's second birthday. While playing with it with my sister I assumed it was in some sort of demo mode and that was why I could not sing into it in the store, so I put it on his wishlist and he received it for his birthday through Amazon. I was very disappointed when we unpacked it and there was no demo mode, no tag to pull out. Both the buttons on the front did the same thing, play the songs, and there was no singing into it. Someone had already throw the recycling out and it was picked up the very next morning, so there was no returning it.
Frustrated to put 'microphone' on his Christmas list after just buying one for him I decided to open the bad boy up since he had zero interest in it. After removing THIRTEEN screws from the back I was able to find inside the little tag that needed to be removed to get it out of demo mode. I could barely get it open enough to slip a finger in to push it out of the little hole in the back of the head, directly below and between the eyes, then pull it all the way through. Sure enough, all the screws back in and now it works as a microphone! My son was very excited, running around the kitchen while I replaced all of the screws asking for his microphone. I'm relieved to be able to take microphone back off of his Christmas list!
