Product Review – Elmo Junction Train Set

For over 40 years, Sesame Street and its likable cast of colorful and furry creatures have been enormously popular with all ages. Among the vast array of characters on the show, though, none have captured the public’s attention and imagination quite as much as Elmo. With his cute appearance, soft voice, and friendly attitude, Elmo has transformed into the single most popular member of Sesame Street. That popularity is reflected in Elmo-related toys, letting kids play and learn with the furry red monster in a variety of ways. Playskool’s newest incarnation, Elmo Junction, continues in that tradition of making learning fun for children.

Let’s Take a Look at Some of the Features

Elmo Junction is a cars and trains set that features a double-decker, figure-eight track. As kids play with the track, pushing the cars and trains over 123 road and ABC railroad, they are treated to Elmo singing a song about numbers or the ABC song. This allows them to learn their numbers and letters as they have fun and imagine traveling in big vehicles. The set features a full ten feet of track, and it breaks down for storage or cleaning with ease.

Things We Like About Elmo Junction

The combination of playing and learning is what makes Elmo Junction really shine. Toddlers love playing with trains and cars, and they’ll find themselves irresistibly drawn to the set and will end up singing their numbers and letters!

Things We Did Not Like About Elmo Junction

Since it features a full ten feet of track laid out in a figure-eight, Elmo Junction takes up a large amount of space. As a result, some parents with limited room might have a hard time comfortably fitting it in. The set operates on two AAA batteries (demos included), though it is difficult to predict how long they will last and how often parents will have to switch them out for new ones.

Who Would Buy Elmo Junction?

Any parents of toddlers who love Elmo, cars, and trains, and who would enjoy seeing their kids spending their playtime learning would pick up the set.

Is Elmo Junction Worth The Money?

Considering the lessons and endless fun kids can gain from the set, its relatively small price tag is more than justified.

Where Can I Buy Elmo Junction?

Like most Playskool products, Elmo Junction is available at all major retailers, including such names as Wal-Mart, Target, Amazon, and many more.

Product Review – Cookie Monster Food Train

Cookie Monster Food Train

Product Review – Cookie Monster Food Train

Sesame Street has contributed some of the most memorable children’s characters in modern history. For more than 40 years, the show has continued promoting basic ideals and teaching kids fundamental skills that serve them well into their adult years. Numerous related toys have spawned as a result. The Cookie Monster Food Train is part of the latest incarnation of those toys.

Let’s Take a Look at Some of the Features

The Cookie Monster Food Train is one part of the Sesame Street Roads and Rails collection. It is a train set that can operate as a stand-alone toy, or it can connect to the larger Elmo Junction. The set has children pushing Cookie Monster as he drives a food train across the track and talks about his favorite foods. The rail car can attach to the Elmo Junction train set, and it includes a removable crate of bananas so kids can feel like they’re really hauling something.

Things We Like About Cookie Monster Food Train

Kids love collecting sets, and the Cookie Monster Food Train feeds that desire. Children who get the food train will want to continue the collection with Elmo Junction and the other segments. The included crate of bananas and the soundtracks that play as the train is pushed across the track demonstrate that Cookie Monster has branched out his eating habits to include more natural sweets instead of his traditional cookie-gobbling.

Things We Did Not Like About Cookie Monster Food Train

The fact that Cookie Monster Food Train is part of a set could potentially be a drawback as parents might not want the potential commitment of purchasing the entire series.

Who Would Buy Cookie Monster Food Train?

Parents with kids who love trains (which is pretty much every parent) will love Cookie Monster’s latest vehicle.

Is Cookie Monster Food Train Worth the Money?

As a standalone set, the Cookie Monster Food Train costs less than $20. Considering the entertainment kids can expect, that’s an excellent price.

Where Can I Buy Cookie Monster Food Train?

All major retailers, both physical and online, that currently sell Sesame Street and other Playskool products have the food train.

Product Review – Big Hugs Elmo

Monday, October 21st, 2013

Big Hugs Elmo

Product Review – Big Hugs Elmo

Sesame Street and its furry characters have always been a favorite of children and adults alike. With many characters being made into toys, the always popular Elmo is given new upgrades every year to cope with the high demand. Each new edition has seen Elmo become more and more interactive. Taking this to a new level is Big Hugs Elmo, which is set to become immensely popular.

Let’s Take A Look At Some Of The Features

Big Hugs Elmo is 22 inches tall and made of delightfully cuddly soft plush fabric, and he responds to hugs and cuddles. He is interactive enough to feel almost like the “real thing.” He sings several songs, including a lullaby when he’s being rocked to sleep, and can actively encourage the child&#8217s imagination with different suggestions of pretend play. He can interact when he&#8217s being rocked or bounced around and is even sensitive enough to tell the child when he&#8217s being held upside down.

Things We Like About This Latest Elmo

What’s not to like, actually. There are so many great features to enjoy. Big Hugs Elmo has a very sophisticated level of interaction that children will find remarkably engaging. He has flexible arms and a soft plush head and is the largest and most huggable toy within the range.

Things We Did Not Like About Elmo

The only negative points are that he is only recommended for ages 18 months and over, so although younger children may be delighted with him, he may not be suitable, which could create arguments with younger siblings. Also he requires 4 AA batteries (which are not included) and official information hasn&#8217t clarified how quickly the sophisticated interaction features will drain battery life.

Who Would Buy Big Hugs Elmo?

This toy is recommended for children aged 18 months to 4 years, although I know a few adults who would consider one for themselves. 🙂 The toy provides a chatty little companion and will encourage the imagination and engage any toddler or young child.

Is Big Hugs Elmo Worth The Money?

It would be hard to put a price on the new Elmo, but he is certainly one of the most sophisticated, interactive toys currently available. The level of interactivity will have most toddlers believing that you have brought home the real Elmo as their own personal playmate. This will certainly make it a toy which will benefit from long periods of enjoyment and will not be relegated to the back of a closet or the bottom of a toy chest.

Where Can I Buy Big Hugs Elmo?

This new Elmo is available for purchase from most major toy retailers and online such as Amazon.com.
