Twist ties and a spot of glue (easily remove-able) attached them in each hand, and they are positioned (pose-able arms) so that they make a nice contact with the drum. His head turns side to side, and both arms move up and down. He has an extra plug in the back of the base for plugging in another motionette or lighted decoration.
He is 24" tall, and 27" to the top of his hat. He operates smoothly with just the lightest motor noise. He does come with the original box that has a few tears, near the top, and lots of clear tape on it.
