    I was just saying when we talk to Kevin, if he would know it by just "ghetto" Elmo without all the specifics......... :)

    Rowlf's nose is wooden. I'm pretty sure that i read once its wodden.

    I seen it in person and its REALLY smoothed out. So, if you're buiilding a replica... have some sandpaper ready lol
