Sesame Street has been a part of my life since I was a little kid. It was my after-lunch, before nap television program that was always enjoyed. Those familiar characters we have all grown to love over the years now entertain and help educate my own kids. They are Sesame Street fans and have been since they were of age to enjoy preschool television. I like Sesame Street because it's not just a kids show, its a memory for us parents too. It's learning, it's fun, it's characters are friendly and loved by almost everyone. 

One character in particular has always made my son smile and laugh, Elmo! Elmo represents today's preschooler with his cute voice and curious ways. He always knows how to help make someone feel better with his positive attitude and is always there for his friends, learning along the way.

There is just something about the furry red guy that makes you want to smile! One of our daughter's first gifts was the original "tickle me Elmo" toy years ago. It would be quiet in her room and then you would suddenly hear Elmo start chuckling and laughing hysterically because our daughter pressed his belly. It always made us start laughing too, we all know how contagious a young child's innocent laugh can be!



Elmo has come a long way since his debut back then with the all-new PTPA winning Playskool Sesame Street LOL Elmo! Elmo loves a fun, silly gigglefest and so will your preschooler, everyone will be LOLing with LOL Elmo! He laughs, tells jokes, and comes with his goldfish Dorothy in her fish bowl (watch what happens when you press it!)!

There are several ways to make LOL Elmo laugh like pressing his feet, tickling his tummy or squeeze Dorothy's fishbowl, the squeak sound gets him going every time! Even a silly sound your preschooler makes can get LOL Elmo into hysterics! LOL Elmo also tells silly jokes if you hold his foot. The more he's tickled, the more he laughs and wiggles! He's such a funny little monster, no wonder he is everybody's favourite!

LOL Elmo comes with batteries and his goldfish Dorothy. His fur is super soft compared to other Elmo's we have owned. He isn't too big for little hands to hug and he looks exactly as Elmo should! His voice isn't too loud, we had one particular Elmo who sounded like he was yelling all the time, the dogs didn't like it very much when the kids would play with him but this one I find is much quieter and appropriate for older toddlers, preschoolers and up!

Our little guy is four and still very much into shows like Sesame Street and Elmo's World too, so when he was introduced to LOL Elmo he said "I'm so HAPPY!" and wanted to open it up right away. He thought Elmo's laugh was just great especially when he got REALLY laughing. He has been carrying Elmo around since we took him out of the box, I think we can say he is a hit in our house!



Definitely a great gift to give the littlest Elmo fan in your house for sure, the holidays are not too far away! ;-)

  8. My daughter (who turned 1 today!) loves Elmo because her 3 older sisters have been showing her the "I'm Elmo & I Know it" (LMFAO parody) on YouTube since she was only a few months old. When we put it on, she gets super excited & dances around & wiggles her bum. And today she got her first Elmo t-shirt! Elmo is just SOOOOOO cute, we love him! :)
