Toggles and Gestures

Im using an avatar that has facial expressions connected to hand gestures, but when i upload the avatar and try using making gestures, the face doesnt change at all. (i tried using a public avatar of the same model, and that one had working face expressions, maybe im using the wrong model?
I used the models that i found in the “Models” folder, i tried using the two prefabs shown in the picture, but they were having errors and i couldnt upload it, but the models in the “Models” folder seemed to work, and i just had to add a descriptor.

Also, the avatar came with a couple extra items, (a phone and a drink) but i have no idea how to connect them to my avatar, help would be greatly appreciated.
