When Monty stops by Elmo's Exercise Camp to do a report, he ends up joining Elmo, Rosita, and Tarah in the fitness fun. Kids will bend, twist, hop, and jump into shape as they learn body parts through songs such as "Elbows and Knees," "Elmocise," and "Do the Benny Hop." This video is perfect for youngsters. It is short and emphasizes movement and health over structured exercises. It also provides an excellent role model for children of all ability levels, as Tarah is in a wheelchair. Preschoolers who like to shake and move should also try Dance with the Teletubbies.

It's not often that I'm extremely sorry I purchased a children's video/DVD, but this one is it! If I could have my money back today and never be subjected to it again, I would be quite happy! I though this would be a ''show me'' video and it's not! The only remotely structured ''exercise'' portion of the video was the ''Workout in a Chair'' - this is also the only part of the video which kept my attention, as well as my two year old's attention. It is the only portion of the video where she could actually follow along and do what the ''instructor'' was showing us to do. Elmocize isn't an ''exercise'' video at all - it's just another typical helter-skelter hodge-podge of Sesame Street clips of kids here and there doing various wiggles and turns and dancing around. Other than the sitting down demonstration of arm exercises, there is NOTHING in this video to teach young people how to do ''exercises.'' A major disappointment, indeed.
