The Playskool Sesame Street Big Hugs Elmo has been picked by 1000 kids as Walmart’s Holidays Top Toys for 2013 for ages 18months to 2 years, Toys R Us’ 2013 Fabulous 15 and #TRUHotToyList for 2 to 4 Years, and included in 2013 Holiday Toy List by Amazon.
Following the Tickle Me Elmo, the Playskool Sesame Street Big Hugs Elmo does more than tickling. Not only does it hugs back when a kid hugs it but also say fun phrases and sings songs. When his left foot is pressed, Elmo will ask kids to join him in his imagination activities.
Also, when Elmo is laid, he will also become sleepy, sings lullaby and then eventually sleeps or turned off. It is a great company for kids for sleep time. He will wake up again when his left foot is pressed.
Check out a short demo below.
