As a kid, I was always pretty fascinated by how things worked. So, I took a lot of things apart. I was never really able to put them back together but I did find out their secrets. This video is one of those " I would never have guessed how that thing looked" kind of revelations.

Tickle Me Elmo was one of the most popular toys at the time of its introduction. It created quite a stir around Christmas of 1996. It was the Cabbage Patch Kid of its day. At the time it seemed very high tech and with fur, quite loveable.

Can you believe that Tickle Me Elmo will turn 21 this year? It's funny how time flies when your laughing right?
