Holiday Gift Guide 2012: Playskool Sesame Street LOL Elmo
Do you remember the 1996 Tickle Me Elmo craze? You know. Where parents were going nuts by literally getting into fist fights in the store and paying upwards of $1500 for one? Craziness right?!
Well there’s a new Elmo in town and he’s got the giggles. Check out LOL Elmo by Playskool.
LOL Elmo Description: Ready to Laugh Out Loud with Elmo? Elmo loves a sidesplitting, rolling-on-the-floor gigglefest! And preschoolers will too with LOL Elmo! He laughs up a storm, tells jokes, and comes with a Dorothy fishbowl squeaker toy for even more silly fun! The more Elmo laughs, the more he rolls and shakes! There are so many ways to make LOL Elmo laugh! Jokes! Silly sounds! Press his feet! Tickle his tummy! Squeeze Dorothy’s fishbowl! It squeaks!
What We Thought
Elmo’s laugh is contagious and your little ones will find themselves laughing right along with Elmo. He says so many cute things such as “That’s hilarious!” and tells jokes like ”What’s a duck’s favorite snack? Quackers!” The more he laughs, the more he rolls back and forth and shakes. From being able to tickle Elmo’s tummy to make him laugh and squeaking Dorthy’s fish bowl, your preschooler will definitely have fun making Elmo giggle.
How long will it keep their attention? It all depends on your child. If they prefer a toy they can snuggle with and make their own sounds with, this probably isn’t the toy for them. Although LOL Elmo is soft, he’s not a cuddly type toy.
If they love Elmo, they love hearing him laugh and they love toys that make noise and talk to them, then most likely they will have a blast with LOL Elmo and will find hours of enjoyment out of it.
Check out the official Playskool LOL Elmo commercial to get a good idea of what he does.
