    The joy on a little boys face in a wheelchair at the premiere of the muppet movie tonight in Hollywood was the culmination of this build. This little boy in a wheelchair just looked up and yelled,"Hi Elmo!!!" and gave him a big hug and a high five. The look of love his mom gave us was priceless. It makes making this puppet all the more worth it. Just to make someone smile and have a special moment they didnt think expect. Onward and upward.

    Didn't see the pattern. I want an Elmo puppet that looks like the one they use in The early 2000s. Any advice

    Because the puppet looks like it has a wider head. Might just have to brush out the fur
