Ugh--this is the one Elmo denies having made...

"If Elmo were interviewed, and they asked him about "Elmocize," he'd have to make excuses. He was young... he didn't know what he was doing.We own this tape as part of our VAST Sesame Street and Elmo collection, since our daughter loves the furry red monster with every ounce of her being. But I have to say that "Elmocize" is the absolute worst Elmo video out there (well, that we've found, anyway). The concept, getting kids to move to the beat, have fun, and exercise with Elmo, is a good one. However, this unfortunate tape was made at one of the low points (in my opinion) in Sesame Street history. The cast at the time was, er, less than talented. So, I have to agree with a previous reviewer--the poor girl who runs the dance studio couldn't sing her way out of a wet paper bag (I guess that's why she's a dancer!). It's not ALL her fault, though--the songs are really weak here! It starts with the insipid "Elmocize! Elmocize! Everybody . . . Elmocize!" Repeat, repeat, repeat. You'll be thinking "Elmocide! Elmocide! Somebody . . . commit Elmocide!" And we LOVE Elmo! Even the Sesame Street kids on the tape seem really, really bored--like they'd rather be studying multiplication. Put it this way--when and if our daughter ever gets to that "rip the tape out of the cassette for fun" stage, I hope this one's the first to go."
Cute, catchy and great for tiring out energetic little ones

"I checked this video out of the library for my six year step-son. He absolutely loved it and I got into it myself. He is really interested in being involved in my workouts and this was a neat way to involve him with risking major injuries. So we did it together and like the previous reviewer , the songs will linger in your head, but I have had worse. My only complaint was with the structure of the video. I just wish it were more structured. It bounced around to much for my taste. But who cares what I think anyway! My step son loved it enough that I am buying it."
Great, but I wish it had actual excersize for kids in it

"My 21 month old son loves this DVD and requests it by name. My 3 1/2 year old is not as impressed. Very colorful but does not have an excersize routine, as I thought it would."

"I bought this video several months ago for my avid Elmo fan who is now 18 months. When I first bought it she didn't like it much but about a month ago I tried it again and she loved it. She loves watching the children as well as Elmo and Monte and even tries to do the "Benny Hop". It really gets her moving."
