The one i have has a large button on the base you just step on that button and santa pops up to full size and reverse it when you want to collapse again

SOURCE: i need instructions on how to pop up my gemmy

It is suposed to pop up once you press on its shoulders. Once you press them both down you will hear two clicks and release and it will pop up. Mine was jammed and when I pressed it down on the shoulders only one side would click, the other side would not click so Santa did not pop up to full size.

It was jammed on the white area of the stocking, the material got tucked inside the click mechinism prevent it from making proper contact. To fix it I simply pulled the white stocking material up (as if you are going to roll the pant leg up) and then when I pushed the shoulders down after that it opened up just like it should!

SOURCE: Gemmy Santa Bear mouth does not move

The repair listed is just the start. You can, with a lot of careful work, remove the bottom of the mouth, but your work has just started. You will then have to remove the rod that holds the mouth rod to the mouth slide lever "spine". It has a small spring at the top and I found it easier to disconnect the spring prior to repairing the unit. It is glued in quite well so I suggest a Dremel tool to cut the sides off which you will enable you to remove the rod. Then you can remove the head from the spine without difficulty. Now you will see that the problem is as stated, the string that pulls the mouth open has separated from the motor shaft. The cause of this problem is that the grease that the mouth slide lever rides on has migrated to the string, and then, softened the glue, which allows the string to separate from the motor shaft. Now, clean the shaft and replace the string. The original string is nylon. You should use similar material, NOT cotton string or a rubber band. You can't use the old string as it is soaked with lubricant. Use a good super glue to bond the new string to the motor shaft. Next, test the unit to make sure that the mouth slide lever operates properly. Reassembly of the unit would be: remount the head to the neck, then reattach the mouth rod to the mouth and then reattach the mouth and rod to the mouth slide lever.
