The pajamas need cleaned. I will not attempt this due to the chance of damage. I inserted batteries and cannot get him to work. The battery compartment is in super nice condition so I believe it to be a wiring issue. Some say this doll came with a dog originally. I am not sure. If so, maybe that is the problem. I have not checked for disconnected wires. This doll is in EXCELLENT+++ condition. About 12" in length and 10.5" tall.
