This year, the iconic kids show Sesame Street, celebrated its 50 year anniversary. During the past 50 years, kids learned, laughed and loved the endearing furry characters on the world’s most beloved street. These adorable muppets taught children many life-changing lessons from the alphabet to showing kindness to being creative and adventurous to the benefits of community love and so much more. We’ve become deeply attached to these loveable muppets and we all have our favorites. Elmo is one of the most popular muppets and both kids and adults adore him. His bright red fur, appealing personality, and innocent humor make him irresistible.
Love To Hug Elmo
Twenty-three years ago Hasbro introduced the Tickle Me Elmo toy and has since created several versions of him over the years since. Most of us have at least one Elmo in our home. In celebration of the 50 years and counting anniversary, the new Love To Hug Elmo toy was created. And he’s precious.
The Love To Hug Elmo is 14 inches tall. bilingual and is all about celebrating love. This Elmo loves embracing and hugging and kids will quickly reciprocate. The on/off switch is on his back, plus you have the option of English or Spanish responses. In the demo mode, Elmo will speak a few phrases from both languages. When you switch to your language on choice, you’ll experience more phrases and songs.
Press the button on his tummy and Elmo will raise up his arms and ask for a big hug. He still has his adorable signature giggle that we all love. But the more you press the button, you’ll hear a variety of different phrases and songs or even a kiss. Elmo comes with an instruction sheet and 2 AA demo batteries. For optimal results, it’s recommended you change the batteries. This muppet has plush fur, but his body is hard to house the mechanics. Kids will still find him just as cuddly and loveable. Love To Hug Elmo is recommended for children ages 18 months and older.
