Parents are always on the look out for toys for young children that are going to engage them and help them to learn. One such toy which has only been released on to the market this month and which is going to prove extremely popular is Elmo Live!
This particular toy produced by Fisher Price is based on the lovable red monster from the Sesame Street programs. In fact if you aren’t careful and don’t make your purchase quickly enough you may find it difficult to get one in the future.
This is much more than a toy that just tells jokes and sings songs. The design of this particular toy allows it to do so much more it can dance, it can sit down, and it can stand, wave its arms and cross it legs. Plus if he should ever happen to fall over whilst being placed with and the child puts him upright he thanks them.
Certainly the people who designed this toy, which children of a young age will find easy to interact with, have done a superb job. It has taken quite a lot of time and money to produce such a life like animated toy . When it comes to the animatronic movements they are shown to their best when Elmo tells the child a story. Not only does he sit he will stand and flail his arms about and his mouth opens and closes as the story is being told. However, the only thing bad I can say against this is that there are only two stories he is able to tell.
To run the toy you will need six AA batteries which are inserted into its back which come as part of the package when purchased. Then in order to activate it all a child needs to do is tickle or squeeze the toys foot, tummy, nose or back. However, because of all the mechanics inside, this toy does weigh slightly more than other toys, so it isn’t something your child will be able to carry around easily.
Because your child may choose to play with this toy quite a lot once they have it, it may be worth your while investing in some rechargeable batteries and the unit to recharge them. However, should your child stop playing with it and forget to turn it off then it automatically goes to sleep so power in the batteries will be saved.
Although some parents may find the price tag a little too hefty around $60. If you don’t buy him now then by the time Christmas arrives you can end up spending considerably more purchasing him on eBay because your local retailer has none left.Tags: elmo live, fisher-price, Hot Christmas Gifts, kids toys
