The part # for the Tyco box is #60720

Probably dead batteries.

Did you replace ALL the batteries?



Open the door to the battery compartments on the bottom of Elmo's feet with a Phillips head screwdriver. Remove the old batteries.


Place the AA batteries in the battery compartments according to the polarity indicators designated by a (+) and (-) sign.


Replace the battery compartment covers. Replace the screws. Set the "On/off" switch on the bottom of Elmo's right foot to "On."


Slide the back cover off the activation box. Install the two AAA batteries in the compartment. Place the batteries in the compartment according to the polarity indicators inside the case.

@mayer, have you ever had a Tickle me Elmo? Seems kinda funny that you would know much about it.


George No,I have never owned one. But when no one else answers a question, I do the research. I am more than happy to back off at any time when someone with actual experience overcalls what I have found.

Actually, if I remember correctly, I was surprised to find that this had one than one set of batteries.


My Elmo has no batteries in the feet. It has a closed voice box only, with a panel that gets pushed to make it talk. The entire mechanism is in one box buried in the back of the toy.


@pccheese after I posted this answer I bought three used furies to see how they tick and give better answers. They drive my dog nuts!


@mayer HaHa. I'm surprised how many people have these things. Did you have a good Christmas?
